Hello everyone! New physio says I have frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) which kinda explains the extreme shoulder pain I've had since June, preventing me from swimming and making simple things like closing the car boot, getting dressed, or playing frisbee extremely difficult. The plus of all this is that because I can't swim I took up C25K
If anyone has any advice I'd welcome it. I'm currently taking 20 mg amitriplyline a night which helps me sleep for more than 2 hrs at a go and is supposed to help relax muscles and deal with the pain. It does make working difficult though. I'm feeling a bit ambivalent- glad to at least have a name for it and an explanation of what's going on; but saddened at how long it could take to improve and pretty stressed about my work.
All advice welcome!
