Bursitis Pain

08/27/2007

Question:

(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.

Answer:

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.
