Neck and shoulder pain has returned
I really thought I was done with the shoulder pain. Back in August I lifted a 19 lb box and re injured the shoulder. Had a cortisone shot which did nothing. Went back to the ortho last week, got another shot which helped for a couple of days. Now the top part of the shoulder is tighter than tight and the pain from around the scapula is terrible. I take oyxcodne 5mg twice a day but it isn't covering. Icing and exercising doesn't help either. Waiting on work comp to approve the ordered MRI. I swear it feels like the shoulder is almost touching the ear lobe. I really want to apply heat but know that's not good. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
