My shoulder has been sore for ages, have lost most of the feeling in my arm and middle fingers for the first couple of hours after waking..
Dr has said I have Subacromial Bursitis.. He suggested a cortisone injection, am hesitant as I have had one in the past after tearing a tendon. It did nothing to help and was excruciating.
Has anyone had this and what did you do to manage or improve it? I am taking loads of fish oil, voltaren and assorted pain meds.

I had a subacromial bursitis and tendinitis in my shoulder due to a sporting injury. The only relief I got was from a cortisone injection, it didn't hurt at all and took about a week to work effectively but was 100 times better. I also need 12 mths of physiotherapy.
I had to push my gp for the injection though she just wanted to give it time. The physio wrote a letter to my gp for me. The gp was also able to label my condition chronic so I got some subsidised Physio sessions.

I had it in my ankle and I ended up having acupuncture. It has saved my life. It took quite a few sessions. Now I just go back once every couple of months. Best thing I ever did!

They say I got mine from an injury around 7 years ago, it's so sore, unbearable at times.
When I had the cortisone in my left shoulder, the needle ended up bent after the Dr couldn't find the right spot, even though it was done under ultrasound direction.. Seriously scarred me for life, that needle was the worst thing I have ever felt. If they could give me gas I'd try it again! lol
