I was diagnosed with calcific tendinitis by an orthopedist. He gave me a shot in the shoulder and sent me to a PT. Also, prescribed NSAI. That was 1 month ago. I followed everything. I sleep little. The pain wakes me up. I can move my arm all around. It feels soared. Sometimes, I feel pain comes and goes during day time. I am not taking any medication I do the PT exercises religiously but I don't see him any more. It does not seem to help. Are there any other options. Thanks??
Hi there I Will give you my opinion If the shoulder pain won't go Amat with PT and NSAI, then i think the next step would be a steroid infiltration direct unto your shoulder. If that won't relieve pain, then i will suggest a Shoulder Arthroscopy, with that procedure most of the injuries can be fix and the pain will go away. Maybe you have a torn rotator cuff as well besides the calcifications. So my advice would be, go to your local Orthopedic Surgeon and see what he has yo offer. Do you take a shoulder MRI? Best regards!
