Sometimes I forget and then move or try to use my arm and have alot of pain. I am unable to lift my right arm above my head the way I used to and this pain has been slowly progressing . I find I can't use my right arm to pull down the truck in my car sue to pain. My hip pain is not as bad these days but my shoulder is.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

No I dont have HA daily although I do have what I migraines during or around my period but they have gotten better, they can last for days and effect one side of my head and neck at a time

what?
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Your symptoms are suggestive of;

1) Frozen shoulder.

2) Cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerves in neck).

Majority of people with above problems will respond to physical therapy alone. The program should be daily and assisted by the physical therapist. The regimen consists of active and active-assistive range-of-motion exercises combined with stretching. Within six to eight weeks progress is usually made. Other treatment modalities such as heat and massage may help. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory analgesics may also be beneficial. Deep electrotherapy in the form of short wave diathermy, Interferential current, trans cutaneous electrical stimulation, iontophoresis, phonophoresis also are very helpful initially.

You may get an MRI of neck and shoulder for the evaluation.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

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.
