I have had 4-3/4 hours of extensive surgery on my right hand, plus carpal tunnel on it twice. Carpal tunnel once on left hand. Both ulnar nerves (funny bone) has been cleaned and moved out of the elbow up into my inside forearm. Still having strength issues, but don't drop things and tremors are reduced. I have fibro, CPS, CFS, diabetic nerve pain in feet and have have vertebrae fused in low back with rods and hardware. Have a neurologist do nerve conduction studies on your arms especially, and other tests run on the muscles.
Could still be ulnar nerve entrapment. That's your funny bone nerve, it can cause pain in shoulder because it branches off the spine, runs through the shoulder and down into arm. Nerve conduction studies will reveal any damage. I still have shoulder and arm pain, but less of it and that's very important to me.
Yes fibro and had surgery on my lower back (fusion) L-4-5 March 12 this year and my doctor saying I should be pain free I told him the surgery didn't help so he order me yo do a MRI to see if he can find anything else.
Peachee I get majorly sore in my shoulders and neck right up to my ears at the back of my head, my back and legs. I have Bursitus in my shoulders and fibromyalgia. I wonder if u could have Bursitus in your shoulders?🌸
I have syringomyelia and chronic pelvic pain with a few other things thrown in for good measure... 😜 I can't feel the heat from water on back but have full sensation on my front and I also get a burning, aching feeling at the back of my neck and throughout my right shoulder and often behind my knees. I was referred to a psin clinic for my chronic prlvic psin/allodynia therefore they won't address my spinal, lower back, neck or shoulder pain. Finding the medical system in Australia very frustrating at the moment. This morning I was woken up at 4 by nightmares and a psin level of about 8 out of 10 and absolutely exhausted. It is Saturday here thankfully so I have taken some pain meds and hoping they kick in soon so I can get some relief and some more sleep. Two hours of nightmares doesn't count as a good night's sleep in my books... 😐
It seems like cronic pain syndrome is associated with arthritis, bone joint issues. Fibromyalgia associated with tissue, muscle, ligaments, tendons...basically not bone/joint issues. I am diagnosed with both and a whole grocery list of things.
It gets complicating. I am working on headings and sub headings of issues a lot of issues cause other things so I can understand the process.
