Approximately one month ago I had an ultrasound and x-rays on my right shoulder and arm. I was told by my Dr. that I have Bursitis. I have gone four times for therapy. I was given exercises to strengthen my muscles in both arms. To date, i have had no relief of this sometimes unbearable pain. I can’t lift anything.without pain. I have been putting heat and ice packs on my right arm and shoulder and doing the exercises, but none of this is helping me. I am not taking any meds for this pain. Will someone kindly let me know if they have experienced this and for how long? What else can I do for myself? I am almost 80 years old and am miserable with this pain 24/7. Thanks very much.

Hello happy76
The best doctor to handle bursitis is an orthopedic doctor. PCP really are not educated in handling that kind of condition.
Also, if PT is not done properly, it can aggravate the situation.

Please go to an Orthapedic doctor immediately. You don’t want it to turn into a frozen shoulder
