Reminder to those that don't know: I have not been diagnosed with PD. I have been diagnosed with REM Sleep Behavior Disorder. But... I have a sore left shoulder.
Okay, so I've been hoping my sore left shoulder is just mouse arm. And I was hoping that the fact that I can practically hear the structural damage in my shoulder meant that it was not PD related. But then I engaged Dr Google and learned YES, frozen shoulder is caused by thickening tendons, adhesions, inflammation, and a lack of lubrication. That sounds about like my shoulder
For the last year to 18 months my left arm and shoulder has hurt. Sometimes I would use my right hand to pull my left arm up to wash my hair.
Here is my question (please be gentle): My shoulder has actually been getting better the last 6 months. I use it to hold things and don't have to pull it with my right hand anymore.
Could that be a sign that something I am doing is helping?
Or... is the frozen should for PD something that only lasts between 1 and 2 years and works itself out on its own?
