Sally - you have my shoulder (and you can keep it!). It started in the middle of the night and has been like this for 6 months now - I can't do anything with it above shoulder height. Currently taking co-codamol as I can't have Ibuprofen and waiting for a physio appointment. Hope yours settle soon.
sally,what I don't know about having a bad shoulder!! Been plagued on and off for nearly 5 years 9think lugging a baby round set if off).What has worked for me is an osteopath and 10 physio sessions (private as I couldn't wait but still the best £300 I've ever spent.) in which i was basically retaught how to stand,move nad so on. I have a repertoire of exercises i do religiously twice a day and am about 90% better.
(Mind was a chronic as opposed to acute condition however.)
