Hi Doyama, I'm so pleased that you are going to PT! My physical therapist has turned me loose. I have the full range of motion back and am pain free in the shoulder. They have so much knowledge and skill! As long as you DO the exercises, you'll see progress soon!
Thanks for the bouquet of flowers goodie! You are so sweet 2504 days ago
Doyama, I'm sorry to hear about your shoulder pain. I can understand! You mentioned prescription anti-inflamatories. Are you going to physical therapy? I can recommend it!
I had a rotator cuff injury that kept me from full range of motion because of the pain. I finally decided to get physical therapy for it 4 years later. I felt so good after the first session that I spent hours gardening that afternoon and gave myself tendonitis of the shoulder on top! But the physical therapist has gotten me back to the point before tendonitis in just a week and a half. ( I was awaking with lots of pain at night, too.) I can hardly wait to see what's next. I have so much respect for her knowledge.
Don't wait forever to get help like I did. Hang in there and let us (in the 50+ team) know what's going on. We help each other in this journey! 2580 days ago
Doyama, please keep on coming by the 50+ team. Some of us are still part of the workaday world *sigh* but others are free to engage in whatever pursuits they want, when they want! I don't get on the team page as often as I would like to these days since I'm feeling a bit swamped at school right now and have been bringing home lots of 'homework'. Ugh! Homework at my age!!
The team members are the greatest and I really mean that! If you've got a problem, there is someone there to support you. Issues with food, exercise, family, whatever! Someone will be there to help you and give you a pat on the back and provide a supporting word. When I was sick a while back, I received all sorts of support from the team. There are a whole bunch of us and we sometimes get mixed up with names/issues but we just laugh and straighten each other out! Aging does have its issues, doesn't it?
