Customer Question
I had a benadryl...

I had a benadryl injection 3 weeks ago and I'm having horrible pains in my arm with movement

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No swelling. Still has a bruise on the site. Not using my arm is the only thing that is comfortable

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had rotator cuff surgery in that shoulder last year?

It seems that shot may have hit a nerve which in turn can injure the muscle fibers. This is responsible for your persistent symptoms for 3 weeks.

Following may help you;

1) Warm compresses.

2) Motrin / Advil.

3) Physical therapy.

4) Deep electrotherapy (done at physical therapy centers)

5) Vitamin C 500 mg per day.

6) Curcumin (an herb which has anti inflammatory action).

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.
