| | Terrible pain in arm
I'm at my whits end. My mother is 70 years old and has a pain in her right arm that makes it impossible for her to lift the arm and use it. She has been to the Doctor who just gave her a cortizone shot which she now feels is making her very sick. She is extremely sensative to drugs and anything can make her ill. I don't know what to do except call her doctor which doesn't seem to help. The orthopedic doctor has not suggested surgery yet. does anyone have any suggestions....any help is greatly appreciated.
