1090984 tn?1463769850 For the past 2 months I been having severe pain on the inside of my arm when it bends. I had my doc look at it a month ago and he said I hurt a tendon and recommended an arm band. The pain seemed to improve but now it's back and very painful, when when I bend my arm it hurts on the inside, when I sleep it hurts when I move it and when I wake up to stretch it. I have taken advil and vicodin without relief. I am tired of having my arm hurt!
Avatar n tn I am concerned that I will not be able to keep my arms over my head for the simulation. I was thinking of taking a motrin and an hr. later, a Vicodin, which I have for the tendonitis when it's really bad. Obviously I'd be getting a ride to and from the simulation. Since the simulation includes a CT scan, would that be ok?

787406 tn?1339203183 I have had tendonitis in both shoulders for 6 years and have suffered greatly. I have had to have cortisone shots in both shoulders just to get the pain down to a manageable level. Last year my doctor happened to run a Vitamin D test on me a I was at an 8-not normal. He iniatially put me on a 50,000 IU dose and then tapered me to a 1000 IU a day. Within the first 2 weeks the pain and tendonitis was gone from my shoulders as documented by my orthopeadic doctor.
Avatar f tn I have had severe pain and limited range of motion in the MCP joint of my right thumb for several months. I do not remember injuring it, and have been conservative with activities that may aggrivate it (ie texting). Finally went to a doctor and he told me it was a form of tendonitis (that interestingly enough, after some research, affects the basal joint and not the MCP joint). He gave me topical steroids and that was all. I went back later and he splinted it.

Avatar f tn I had surgery for my Tendonitis. Now After the surgery the pain is worser, I get tingling, sharp shoting pain from the shoulder to my elbow to the forearm. Afetr the surgery he said I did not have Tendonitis. 5 months after the surgery I took another MRI which show I still have Tendonitis/Tendon Tears and this time it's worser than before. My question is What did he do wrong to my shoulder?
Avatar n tn When it gets inflamed due to overuse or injury it is called as tendonitis. There are different types of tendonitis like wrist tendonitis, knee tendonitis etc. According to the types of tendonitis, the treatment varies. But in general conservative measures including resting the area (avoid using during pain episodes) and ice application will help control inflammation and reduce swelling.

Avatar n tn X-rays are usually normal in patients with Achilles tendonitis, but are performed to evaluate for other possible conditions. Occasionally a MRI is needed to evaluate a patient for tears within the tendon. If there is a thought of surgical treatment a MRI may be helpful for preoperative evaluation and planning. You can refer http://orthopedics.about.com/cs/ankleproblems/a/achilles.htm for more information.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Maybe someone can help me. For the past four months I have been experience really severe pain in my lower right leg. I have had shin splints before. I did the anti inflammatories, icing, rest, return to running slowly... etc. The pain persisted. The pain hurts when I run for longer than 5 minutes and hurts the duration of the run, and continues hurting the whole day. I had a bone scan and MRI done.
Avatar f tn I've been having this shoulder pain for about 5-6 years now. It makes it hard since I'm only 27, and I find that I end up in pain that is so horrible that it can leave me curled up in a ball, holding my arm as I cry. I've gone to 3 different doctors, and the last one finally said it most likely is tendonitis. He had told me- "It is tendonitis that cannot heal because the space between the bones where the tendon is, is smaller then normal.
