Running out of options. Shoulder pain but no orthopedic issues
Hi, I hope someone can help. I am 53 years old, post-menopausal for 3 years. I have always lifted weights and I am also an avid runner. Healthy, 5’2″ 120lb. All good until a year ago when gradually my left shoulder started to feel week and sore. It is now 12 months and both of my shoulders are in pain, the left shoulder more so than the right. Limited motion when reaching the back, or if I suddenly need to move my arm. Have been to three orthos, had cortisone shots, Xray, Ultrasound, MRIs, and all they see is inflammation of my muscle and tendons, and fluid but no reason as to why is there. Pain stretches to under my arm and biceps. I have been taking Cymbalta for 15 years but when I tried to titrate down I developed horrible hip pain on my right side. Once I started to take the Cymbalta again, the pain went away. I was told by my primary that it was probably fibromyalgia pains. At this point I don’t know what else to do, where to go, or who do I talk to. The pain is so bad at night or when working. Please help!
