I have been diagnosed with shoulder tendinitis,I have tried physiotherapy treatments which don't work, my doc. just prescribed naproxen 500/20mg twice daily for two weeks. He said if this treatment does not work I would have to get a cortisone injection. I am curious about all this and would appreciate your comments. thanks
Vimovo is nothing more then naproxyn with a medication to protect your stomach.
Kaismama is right. I've got OA and bone spurs in both shoulders and had cortisone injections in both on more than one occasion. If the naproxyn doesn't help the swelling and pain, the injection should. Just don't become too dependant on these injections as they will eventually break down the cartilage in the joint, causing extreme pain with few treatments. But the occasional injection over time will be fine. Hope this helped and you feel better soon!
I have following suggestions-
1. Look for underlying cause like diabetes or liver problem
2.Regular shoulder rotation , movement and exercise is Must.
3.Reduce time by 50 % on computer and tv.
4.Go for more juices ,warm water , green tea and redice sugar (in any form )
by 50 % in 3 weeks.
5.Meditate on shoulder for 20 mintes at a time and twice a day and visualize
a strong ray of Light is entering the spot and pain is relieved.
6. Give light massage and heat on alternate days.
7.Pray for others who have similar pains and HE will help you.Do Give sufficient rest to shoulder and check sleep position.
My Prayers with you and All in this Group--God Bless-
WHat is the proper sleeping position for one with shoulder problems??
