(Re Question 527454)
The pain is in my left arm and now my left shoulder. I was first diagnosed 40 yrs ago and then it seemed to go into remission, but the last several years the pain and limited movement has increased.
The pain may be coming from arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis and/or possibly a rotator cuff tear. You should be be seen by an orthopaedic physician who specialize in shoulders. If you are in the Cincinnati area, I recommend Dr. Kenter.
