Hello,

Maybe somebody has experience with cirtisone injection and shoulder bursitis. It has been 8 days now after the injection. The sharp pain that shoots through the entire arm (when I move the shoulder wrongly) is still there - that hasn't changed.

I called my doctor and he told me to take 2 Aleve in the morning and 2 in the evening to help take the inlammation and pain down. Plus he wants me to wait another week and come back if it hasn't improved.

You know, it is so frustrating, everybody tells me that they had cortisone shots and the cure started a day or two later. They tell me I should not feel pain by now and it should be heeled, and that the treatment failed.
Once it is hopefully healed in a few weeks (because I keep hoping!!!), do you think it will come back? (Since I won't muck the stalls of my horses any more - I did that for 3 weeks in January when the soil was heavy from the rain, that's how I hurt my shoulder...) One it heals, will it be healed for good?

I don't do any strengthening exercises yet...

Thanks!!!
Lahila :)
