Glucosamine and frozen shoulder

Common Questions and Answers about Glucosamine and frozen shoulder


Avatar n tn I had an MRI which showed a rotator cuff tendonitis causing scar tissue and a frozen shoulder. I had closed should manipulation to remove scar tissue and within short period of time was better and back to work. Now my problem is in both shoulders R worse than L and xrays show bone spurs impinging rotator cuff. PT hurt and anti inflamatory Celebrex helps but doesn't get rid of the pain after work.
Avatar n tn So it is my belief once you have frozen shoulder its a touch and go sometimes it comes back and sometimes it exacerbates things in the future.. My first frozen shoulder HOLY COW, exercise it NO WAY!

At this time, I could not lie on either side of my body, due to intense pain in my shoulders and arms. Deep tissue massage was done for three days, at which time I developed a fever and lost my voice to the point where I could only whisper.
405614 tn?1329147714 Thanks for the gentle hugs and kind words. Maybe I'll only eat half a pint of frozen yogurt! I have half a smile on my face now. I am so glad I found you all. You're wonderful!
Avatar n tn Yes-it has helped me-going to a Chiropractor...he took x-rays of my spine and lower back etc to see what the problem is on why my shoulder and ect. is hurting and stiff spine looked like a "S" nad the shoulder is from stress and me favoring my right side more than my "left" so when I use the left side more at times for some tenses up You might give a Chiropractor a chance and just see how ya feel!
Avatar m tn Go for fresh fruits and veggies and cook 'em yourself instead of reaching for the easier canned or frozen ones. Same goes for meat, poultry and fish. Stay well hydrated with water and avoid alcohol since it dehydrates the body. Cut down on caffeine for the same reason. The closest I came to anything remotely like your injury was when I was a ballet dancer. I was bending backward doing a barre exercise and some cartilage in my upper chest popped.
Avatar n tn Hi I did IUI on Saturday and am now doing the dreadful 2WW and I am already feeling discouraged but not defeated. I have PMS signs and it sucks cuz IF and WHEN AF shows up I'm gonna feel like burying my self under my sheets and never waking up. Don't mean to seem negative but today I am feeling prety down. Anyhow good luck to both of us.
317787 tn?1473362051 ) I am learning that the frozen shoulder I have is where the body lays down collagen over the shoulder joint and the arm and slowly grows until the arm and shoulder are one unit. Not a good thing if you want to wash your hair or put on a shirt or a coat. I am working on it with PT and I am also taking something called Serrapeptase to try to help me get rid of the extra collagen that is in the wrong place. I wonder if I could convince it to move to my face?
Avatar n tn In the evening I take some frozen veggies out of the freezer and wrap in a towel and rest on my left tactical and this helps allot.
Avatar n tn 's of Vitamin A, 1500 mg of N-Acetyl Glucosamine, Cal Mag, and Spirulina (which contains Vit. b-12 among other minerals, etc.). He thinks my vibrations are the result of hyperthyroidism, which I have always tested negative for when a TSH test has been done. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
317787 tn?1473362051 For the past 6 months I have slowly been experiencing, bicep, tricep and shoulder pain which also could be tendon, ligaments, muscles, not sure. I am going to a specialist on Monday to hopefully get an MRI to see what is happening in my shoulder. It is suspected that I have torn the labrum which is inside the rotator cuff as well as some of the tendons in the rotator cuff.
Avatar n tn The Glucosamine/Chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial (GAIT), rigorously evaluated the efficacy and safety of glucosamine and chondroitin in 1,258 people, concluding in its study that the "combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate in the right formulation is effective in treating moderate to severe pain due to arthritis.
1840891 tn?1431551393 I have discovered an enzyme called Serrapeptase, it is supposed to dissolve dead tissue in the body, i.e. my frozen shoulder is made up of collagen that for some reason has wrapped around my shoulder and arm, turning two joints in to one. It is very painful, I have to now work to rip those bands of collagen, scar tissue apart.
789911 tn?1368640383 In hips and shoulders? Just curious as I have been reading a lot about the shoulder and hip joint and how they can become frozen and it is a long process that starts with a few twinges and escalates until 6 months later you can barely move. If I had known this 5 months ago I could have done something about it. Just a thought. Also, years ago I read that hip pain can be a sign of calcium deficiency.
Avatar n tn I am now 2 Mo. post treatment and the shoulder pain has returned although not as severe. The other aches and pains seem to be dissapering as well although thr post treatment recovery process is slower than I thought it would be. I was geno 1A infected for about 30 years. 6 mill VL undetect at 8 weeks. just received 8 week post treatment pcr back still undetectable. Life is slowly getting better my hair is starting to grow back and I don't want to kick the cat anymore.

Avatar f tn Just dont get mag oxide - it does nothing. Glucosamine chondroiton does something for joints and cartilage but not muscles. Other natural supps for daily muscle pain, bromeline, papaya, tumeric, boswellia, devils claw, arnica (topical).
Avatar m tn It's very easy to slip into a habit of taking an anti-inflammatory indefinitely (the diclofenac), I urge you to experiment with self-help steps too (some are mentioned above), I had lower arm tendonitis for a couple of months (a precursor to my two year adventure with Frozen Shoulder Syndrome) and while I found diclofenac transdermal salve invaluable (10%, and went through two 50 gram tubes of it over six weeks), hard massage on oiled skin (I used a roller) was helpful, along with hot packs.
4226456 tn?1354123528 glucosamine, chrondroitin and msm to try and help but not so far. Triple therapy turned my body inside out and although I am feeling much better then I did when I was on treatment, these side effects are new to my body. I feel like an 80 year old instead of an active 50 something.. Thank you for any advice or sharing of your post treatment new side effects.
Avatar n tn Flax seed oil (Omega 3 fatty acids, good for the joints and heart) and Glucosamine with Chondroitin (also for joints) are natural supplements that have also helped me immensely. Being natural with no chemical accelerators and such means they take longer to take effect. For awhile the only thing I noticed was increased bowel activity but after a month or two of taking the Flax seed oil, I didn't take any for one day and I'll tell you what, the difference was huge.
Avatar n tn I lost 14 pounds, had headaches all the time, hurt in my entire right abdomen, lower right back and shoulder and developed dizziness and terrible nausea. The GI doc I am seeing now suggested an ERCP which I agreed to (you know - we get DESPERATE). HE said my bile duct was narrow and had a lot of pressure in it. He put in a stent and I got sicker. I developed mild pancreatitis (cleared in a few days) and the right side pain continued.
Avatar n tn In my case, the excruciating pain every morning between my shoulder blades and mid-spine area started about 3 months. It usually starts around 4 A.M. Sometimes it is so bad that the only way for me to cope with the pain is to get up walk around for an hour. There is no position change in bed or sitting that helps relieve this pain. (Sound familiar??) The pain disipates as the day goes on. By mid-day, the pain is a dull ache in my back.
Avatar f tn Pedialyte ice is also better. She throws up until she staggers and falls-I am continuously trying to hydrate her and giving her baby food-At times, she is able to keep it down, other times the vomiting is horrible. She continues to try for us, and we are fighting so hard for her-LIke others, I tuck her in at night (she sleeps on the loveseat with her "bankie" covering her). I am sleeping in the den with her so I can give her support throughout the night.
Avatar n tn My massage therapist is working on my frozen shoulder and nerve damage in my elbow. I sleep about 14 hours a day, some days more some less, the rest of the time I watch tv, go on the computer, do laundry, cook meals, pass the swiffer. It makes me feel pretty usless, I am lucky I have a husband who stands by me. We have been together almost 10 years now and when we started dating, I gave him that article about what to tell people about FM.
Avatar n tn He seemed very concerned about this condition. I also have fatigue and always a feeling of muscle aches and sometimes confusion. Please...anyone that has suffered from this condition, please respond....I am very concerned about this and would appreciate any info from anyone!
Avatar n tn I recently hurt my right shoulder, and I've been taking aspirin, so I'm assuming that's probably the culprit. The migraine medication (a "triptan" drug) also affects blood vessels, so that may also be a factor. I sympathize with those of you who have had this happen frequently! It's also reassuring that it doesn't seem to be serious.
Avatar f tn Like I said before, I am a survivor, Nobody has ever died from menopause and no I take that back. I heard they found a woman frozen on her door step in her pj's. They said they didn't know why she was out there, well I sure do. I have been there myself, with my feet in the snow, feeling just wonderful.
Avatar n tn My b6 blood level was 81 - the maximum safe level in this test was 32. When reading about b6 toxicity one reads about tingling hands and feet and being "wobbly on your feet" and things of that nature. It can be much more than that. Be careful with Vitamin b6. It's not known if the neurological damage is reversible. Some studies show it is, some show it is not.
