    Hi everyone, well i have seen a shoulder specialist today, he thinks my problems are my AC shoulder joint, not an impinjment or rotator cuff weakess, so i have to have an mri to confirm then the joint injection done under xray with it being the joint, as anyone else had this? I have had joint injection years ago in my neck which was excrusiating pain at the time, ive heard its not as painfull in the shoulder but not convinced by this, so i am panicking already, its due nxt thursday, ime glad i might be out of this pain but still nervouse.

    Hi Sue

    Sorry no-one replied to your post. I can’t help on this one either, but maybe you’ve had the injection done by now? I hope it all went well and you get some relief.

    Let us know how you are, won’t you?

    Hi Sue g,

    I have only had facet joint injections done in my lumbar spine…had 8 or 9 done in one go, done under xray, they were pretty painful but over very quickly so I found them fairly manageable ( it’s all relative of course!). I do hope your appointment goes well, will be thinking of you. Reward yourself with something nice afterwards and let us know how you get on. Take care x

    Hi laura
    Thankyou for your reply,i am just thinking if its painful it might be worth it! If it wrks which ime hopefull it will, it did in my neck so fingers crossed, they have said its no where near as bad in the shoulder as having it in the neck but maybe they just say that! The specialist doing it is sooooo nice so hopefully he will be nice to me!!!! I will post tomorrow after i have had it done.
    Thanks again
