extreme shoulder pain that shifts from right to left and very swollen painful hands?
Question by : extreme shoulder pain that shifts from right to left and very swollen painful hands?
So painful could cry. Taking tylenol which helps a bit but, this has been going on for about 6 weeks now. Can’t raise arms hardly at all. Physical therapist says it is frozen shoulder but, why does it one day hurt on left, then few days later moves to right? And why the swollen hands? Can’t even hold a pencil in my right hand.

Please take this as advice, not a diagnosis. From what you are describing you may have a cervical disc problem that is applying pressure on the nerves that run into your arms. If a disc becomes highly inflammed, it may put pressure on one nerve or both nerves creating muscle weakness in the arms. Can you be more specific in where in your shoulder and which fingers are swollen? To rule this out ask your PT to try cervical mechanical traction.
