Smile shoulder arthritis need info

I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the shoulder joint. What is strange is that I have minimal shoulder discomfort, but do have cracking and poping and a decreased range of motion.Most of my pain is in the whole arm. It is like a burning aching feeling. Can joint arthritis cause you to have referrend pain or soreness in the affected limb?

Re: shoulder arthritis need info

Hi and yes. I have arthritis of the spine, so far we have only checked my neck but we are pretty sure it's the whole spine and the pain I have cause shooting, sharp and genaral aching of the arm and shoulder as well as pins and needles down the arm. I am not done with tests yet but did ask my doctor if I have arthritis in my neck/shoulder would it cause this awful pain in my arm? His answer was "absolutely".

Re: shoulder arthritis need info

I also have arthritis of the neck and spine and pain down my shoulder and arm. Sometimes like right now it feels horrible! Does anyone know of a pain killer that will help this! Last night I soaked in a tub and after put on biofreeze and it actually helped for a while, but after I got up this morning it was right back again. I am going to a rheumatologist soon and I was hoping maybe someone might have some questions I should be asking him.

I had a bone scan done and it showed that I have arthritis up and down my spine. I also have osteoporosis in my hips very bad.

Thank you,

Re: shoulder arthritis need info

But I don't have arthritis of the spine. That would make me think it could go down the arm, but what about just in the shoulder joint.
