Re: come&go bad shoulder/arm pain
I just typed you a long response and lost it.
I can't relate to your biopsy connection, but your symptoms sound like mine when I was diagnosed with shoulder impingement syndrome. It hurt to raise my arm, especially above shoulder level. Over the months, it began hurting to try to put my hand behind my back. I eventually lost my ability to put my hand behind my back at all. I had no injury to my shoulder. It came on gradually. I eventually developed shoulder bursitis and tendonitis and bicep tendonitis. I ended up having a subacromial decompression surgery. It got me back to pretty much normal. It might be worth seeking out an orthopedic shoulder specialist.
I find it interesting on the ANA as well. I've had a positive ANA (1:640 homeogeneous) for a couple years and none of my doctors have really cared about it. I wish you well at the rheumatolotist.
