|(Waiting for the Orthopaedic Surgeon)|
The last time I visited the Orthopaedic Surgeon was in March 2017.
I was diagnosed with impingement of nerves at my 4th and 5th lumbar. I was advised to undergo a surgical procedure to correct the condition but I refused. After loads of pain killers, muscle relaxants, hot gel rub and after a few physiotherapy sessions, the pain stopped as mysteriously as it started.
This time around, I experienced stiffness and pain in my right shoulder joint. I tried a deep muscle massage but the pain worsen. It was worst at night when I sleep on my right side and put pressure on my bad shoulder. The doctor injected corticosteroid into my shoulder joint. It was supposed to have a numbing effect but the nagging pain had limited the movement of my right hand.
A follow up visit will be in five days time to assess the effect of the jab.
