My shoulder and top of my left arm has given me some problem now for over a year. I thought I had pulled a muscle so left it to get better itself. The last few months, its made me feel sick and when I exercise it seems to aggravate it so I went to see a physio who gave me exercises for a few months but it got worse. She then told me to book in to see the main physio because she was concerned when I told her I had APS.The physio told me he could not give me an injection as it may cause a problem with my blood so he sent me for a scan. The scan showed the tendon being severely inflamed and damaged with calcium deposits. I have been told that they will start heat physio , then if this does not work, I have to have a cortisol injection but have to get permission from St Thomas first and then if I am not allowed this I have to have an operation to take some of the bone off my shoulder to allow movement. Now I have just discovered that Calcium deposits are caused by oesteoporosis which I have not got but am on Calcium tablets from St Thomas to avoid this. Has anybody experienced calcium deposits and what was the outcome??? Am I falling to pieces ???
