I hope I am posting this correctly so that all of you who helped me with my initial Qs will see this. I have seen a shoulder specialist today as the Rheumy referred me to him to rule out a mechanical injury. He informed me that it could be frozen shoulder but less likely as my pain and symptoms have been in both shoulders. I can see that my symptoms could be this but he and I agreed to ask Rheumy to give me a trial of steroids first and see if I respond and then +/- cortisone injections. So now I have to wait until the letters go from him, to the Rheumy and if he agrees to a trial of oral steroids then to my GP and off I go to see if it works.
One thing I wanted to ask, apart from my normal bloods, I haven't really lost weight. In all other respects I appear to fit with PMR although I can see that it could be frozen shoulder too. Does everyone loose weight with PMR?
Does anyone know if oral steroids would help with frozen shoulders?
