I had a mri done that showed I have tendonitis in my left shoulder. I can't raise my left arm up very high which makes washing my hair or brushing it extremely hard. I know I have bulging disc in c5 and c6 with nerve root damage in both. I could raise my arm before they found the tendonitis tho. I can't reach behind me with it either. It just won't move. This has added to the severe pain I already had. I am currently taking hydrocodone apap and zoloft as my meds. I also have a brain injury. I feel like I am falling apart. Is my limited arm movement from my neck or the tendonitis? Please help thank you.
Hi! I have tendonitis in my left arm too. It hurts between the elbow and the shoulder a lot, don't sleep good . I can not lift my arm up to my head or behind me can not sweep my floors, it is hard to dress some times. I have had mime since oct 2009. Ice helps and biofreeze pain relieving gel helps, it gets cold like ice. Good luck
