After lifting heavy cement blocks in garden I had pains in both shoulders. On the web I found a list of eight symptoms for ROTATOR CUFF PAINS == I have them all! After three months suffering I saw my doctor and told her my story and that I had been using heat pad on shoulders, liniment, and pain killer pills Paracetamol. She said to keep up the heat and pills at night; it could take three to six months to improve and if I'm not careful I would lose the use of the arms!! Can anybody suggest anything useful?
Back in the 70's I had "tennis elbow" and that was speedily cured with CORTISONE injections -- but docs don't like to use it.
Oh, by the way -- I'm 80+.
