I have been diagnosed with Shoulder Bursitis and three inflamed tendons. My Dr. has given me Tylenol #3 for the pain and she also suggested I get physiotherapy. The Tylenol does absolutely nothing for my pain. I have been using a heating pad and also putting ice on my shoulder and upper arm. I would very much like to hear from anyone who is suffering from this painful condition. I can't sleep, can't raise my right arm, everything hurts my arm and shoulder. I have been like this for over two weeks and I am not getting any better. Should I rest my arm, or should I do exercises? I am at a loss as to what to do for myself. BTW I am 79 years of age. My Dr. has not been much of a help.
