15 month ago I had a severe painful "frozen shoulder" I was given an xray and painpills. The pills didn't work. It went away after 3 days. 7 days after the first attack, my other shoulder did the same thing. Urgent care thought I was either roughed up or nuts. All sorts of domestic questions. I started physical therapy to free up my tender shoulders. The physical therapists was alarmed when my wrists started swelling, and after a good battle with my primary, I was finally refered to my Rh doc. Yes I have RH, but he doesn't think these attacks are related. I also had the same pain happen in my hip. A few weeks back my shoulder did it again, much worse than before. Prednisone helped. I now have elevated liver enzymes, probably from the herbal menapause meds my primary suggested. I'm on methotrexate, but I can't find anything anywhere on why my joints would freeze up, and be so painful. Makes childbirth feel like a cake walk. I almost hope no one else suffers from this. Could be something else altogether. Thanks for listening. I'm scared.
