bursitis and tendinitis in shoulder

I've been told that I have bursitis and tendinitis in my right shoulder.....(I might have frozen shoulder also). Can anyone explain why my shoulder and arm would be more painful at night than it is during the day? It get's so painful at night that I canít sleep.

Re: bursitis and tendinitis in shoulder

I've had a frozen shoulder problem 3 years ago. It was really bad and I couldn't sleep. I remember waking up at night in terrible pain, so I had to sit up for a while because the pain was unbearable in the laying position. The cortisone shot, PT and the swimming helped. Go to the Mayo Clinic web site and search for the frozen shoulder problems. They have everything explained nicely.

Re: bursitis and tendinitis in shoulder

Thanks for the info to check Mayo Clinic. Will do that. My left shoulder is terrible at night too. Sleep with a heated herbal pillow. Had cortisone shot in the fall now it's just as bad as before. How often should I have one?

You need to be careful of sleeping with heat on it. You could be making it worse with too much heat if you have inflammation you need to be icing it. I have calcific tendonitis and I am told to ice it 5 times a day for 15 minutes eachtime and to take take Aleve for the inflammation.....please ask your pt about icing ok...and take care.
