I am having severe localized pain when I lift my left arm over my head and it is in muscles for more than four months. The rheumatologist did an x-ray and blood test which are all normal. He prescribed tablet Arcoxia-285 (90 mg) and Panadol (665 mg) + injection Depo Medrol 40 mg for 14 days. Seven days have been passed but a bit of pain is reduced but muscle is slightly locked and I cannot freely move my upper arm (pain is near triceps and biceps). Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
