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.

Re: Neck and shoulder pain has returned

I feel your pain, literally. I went through that two years ago. The only thing that helped me was Prednisone Packs. The end result was the worst herniated disc my Neurosurgeon has seen in 30 years of practice. I had a cervical laminectomy at C6-C7 and the pain was gone. Only problem is that after being in pain for four months before the problem was discovered I know have fibromyalgia. I also fear I have a new herniation because 5 days ago the shoulder pain started again. Going to the Dr. this afternoon. Good Luck!
