My last steroid drop was 3 weeks ago. For the past week I have had severe pain in my right shoulder blade. Nothing will make it go away except resting in a high backed chair or lying on my back. It is worse with movement e.g. peeling potatoes, dusting or walking. My GP examined me today and said he doesn't think it is a rotator cuff injury as my range of movement is fine.
I was wondering if anyone else has had one-sided flares like this. When I first had the PMR symptoms it was in both shoulders but, recently, the steroids seem to be controlling the inflammation in just the left shoulder and not the right. I am right-handed.
