Hi,

As per your description,possible differential diagnosis may include Tendonitis,Nerve compression,syndrome,Adhesive capsulitis shoulder.

You are doing good self care remedies and continue it.

However you must see an Orthopedic doctor for a clinical exam and MRI should be done.

If your symptoms are not getting better with such self care remedies for last few days then you may require prescribed high potent muscle relaxant and steroids.

Physical therapy should be added in treatment.

You should make an appointment in next few days.

Avoid push-ups and heavy weight lifting.

Hope this helps.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
