Excruciating Pain in R Shoulder from Bicipital Tenosynovitis

Posted by babette @babette, May 11, 2020

I'm in major pain. I had arthroscopic surgery on my L shoulder for bicipital tenosynovitis a few years ago and my ortho doc thinks it's now affecting my R shoulder. My doc wants an MRI but was reluctant to provide pain meds that are worth anything! Can anyone relate? What helps?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Bones, Joints & Muscles group.

@babette. Is it possible to at least get a cortisone injection? I had a very painful shoulder about 10 years ago. I don’t recall what the diagnosis was, but I went two times for cortisone shots and after the second one I never had a problem again! I wish cortisone would worked as well on my bursitis.

@babette I’ll be hoping that the ortho will have a great solution for your pain. Being in pain constantly really wears on a person.
