My sympathies, I have also been on the receiving end of one of those 'virtual' colonoscopies, I found it more distressing than the real thing.

Perhaps the "old-persons body falling to bits" thread? I'm sure I can add a few posts, currently have a frozen shoulder and haven't slept a full night for 9 months.
If you can now get hold of, or your other medication/s permit, have you tried Indometacin?
It's a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug used via prescription to reduce fever, pain, stiffness, & swelling from inflammation. After 9 months if the body hasn't cleared it, you may have a longer term use for something like it. It takes a while, but it does work

You have my sympathies, had it twice. FIrst time got it cleared with Acupuncture, second time I couldn't afford the treatment so had to wait it out and it took about seven months. Hope it clears soon.

I have a little bit of tendonitis in my right elbow, if that's any consolation? I use a rowing machine to keep fit. Apparently I've stuck my oar in once too often...

What exactly is a frozen shoulder, and how does it get that way?

I’ve lost count on the number I’ve had. The worst part is the day before.

Go and see an orthopaedic doctor. Ask him to manipulate your shoulder under anaesthesia and then work on some good stretching exercises. I suffered for over 2 years before finally giving in and seeing a doctor.

And yes, I'm old and I am falling apart!

I've been with GP and NHS physio, but they are pretty basic in their thoughts - the usual swirly arounds and pushing a stick up in the air exercises.

I'm lining up a Niel Asher osteopath in a couple of week's time for that type of specialist manipulation, after that I'll see about MUA - seems like a lot of pro and a lot of con feedback on MUA.

Nah. In my head you are forever like this:

"MUA" was akin to the noise that I would make when opening the latest invoice from my Swiss physio. No idea what it means in this respect.

Apart from basic majorette tuition, did the physio that you received involve any physical manipulation of back/neck/shoulder?

Manipulation Under Anesthesia - basically the frozen shoulder can't be moved actively or passively because of the pain levels and muscle guarding, but under anesthetic they shove it about a bit to break up the adhesions (it's called adhesive capsulitis).

For LiW - its an inflammatory/auto-immune response in the shoulder that is driven either by injury (rotator cuff, impingement, even injections) or by biology (metabolic syndrome/diabetes, thyroid issues etc) and has a fairly well defined progress of freezing - frozen - thawing over a typical 18 month - 2.5 year period.

I had basic manipulation however the ROM limits are exceptionally painful, the Niel-Asher technique seems to have some support as it is a manipulation in a specific fashion and specific order.

Basically the failure is a biological one and not a mechanical one.

I like the "majorette tuition" term, that's how it feels.

Thank you for the explanation. I just looked up 'adhesive capsulitis', and am still taking that in.

Can you pin it on any particular event? I realise that you said that the cause is biological rather than mechanical but sometimes these things can be accentuated by, say, a sporting injury?

Did anyone suggest injections in order to facilitate the thawing?

No specific event - but age, left shoulder and thyroid issues are all part of the mix - as you say injury can also be the cause of the adhesive capsulitis response.

Injections of cortisone for pain-relief are one option, also hydrodilution, MUA and a range of others, all with their own risks and are mechanical responses to a biological driver.

Age, ain't that the bitch?

Cortisone injections - for me, only had two then gave up - are only for immediate relief. But you know that.

Whatever, sorry to read that you're suffering with this, hope that you find some kind of pain-relief and a proper night's kip before too long.
