I slipped on the ice in Jan. 2 months later I was told I had 'frozenshoulder'. MRI showed possible fray of bicep tendon. 4 months of therapy and I still have pain, stiffness, muscle weakness and frequent/painful spasms. I feel like my doctor doesn't believe me. He gave me a cortizone shot. Within 2 hours I couldn't move my arm at all and when I tried it would shake and spas out.:( I lost what little strength I had regained as well as movement ability. It has taken me 3 weeks just to get back to where I was before the shot. I didn't want the shot as I had had a bad time once before when given in my knee. Now he wants me to have the steriod through topical cream. I don't want any more of that med in my system. I am completely frustrated and ready to say the heck with it and live with one good arm. However the injured arm is my dominant. Any suggestions...:confused: Oh yea. This is a workers comp case and they are on my butt as well, though I haven't lost any time at work over it.
