RE: [IP] Frozen Shoulder



Is frozen shoulder akin to tendonitis? I have had frequent bouts with my arm
freezing in one position (the pain was terrible if I tried to move it) but
have been told it was tendonitis or bursitis. Always got cortizone
injections in the joint before. Now I'm not sure I'd let them do that again
since I'm diabetic.

BTW, got my pump a bit over a week ago. I'm pumping saline now. Can hardly
wait till I go live next Wednesday.

I think a number of us have reported "frozen" shoulder problems. I know I
had it on my left side and went through physical therapy... then more
recently it happened to my right shoulder. I've just been working it out on
my own and its been gradually getting better. Its a real pain (literally)
