Cortisone Shot for bursitis?
Hi, I have seen a doctor about a pain in my soulder that will not go away.
The symptoms are: 1. Cracking and popping when I move my right shoulder 2. Extreme pain in that shoulder 3. Tingling and numbness in the right arm and fingersI obeyed what the doctor said and iced it and have been taking Naproxen 2x a day for about 2.5 weeks.
The Naproxen is buring a hole in my stomach, making me feel very sick, I have dizzy spells, and constipation, i’ve been especially tired the past couple weeks and I just can’t stand to take it anymore.
So… I want to know if a Cortisone shot is the way to go.
Will it releive the pain, or actually take care of the problem? Whatever that is.
My doctor refused to do an MRI or X-Ray for some reason.
I’m going to Mexico on a mission trip in 3 weeks and I’m on a work crew!
I need my shoulder to be in working order, and fast!
It’s been hurting me for about 2.5 months now.
