Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have been having right shoulder joint pain for the last seven months. Pain is present during extreme arm movements and while moving. I think some nerve or vein hinders the movement. I took Tendocare for ten days. I have bad cholesterol levels, according to the laboratory test results. Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

According to your MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) reports (attachments are hidden to protect the patient's identity), the probable diagnosis is RCT tendinosis. I will give you a few suggestions and medications:

1. Tablet Ibuprofen 400 mg twice in the morning and night for ten days after food.

2. Tablet Rabeprazole 20 mg twice in the morning and night for ten days before food.

3. Tablet Shelcal (calcium) 500 mg once in the morning for 30 days before food.

4. Tablet Vitamin D 60K units once daily for ten days, then once a month for a year.

Take these tablets only if you are not allergic to them. Do not take these tablets if you have bronchial asthma.

  • Use an arm pouch or sling for ten days to give it rest and help reduce the swelling.
  • Do hot fomentation twice daily.
  • You do not need any exercise or physiotherapy.
  • If the pain does not reduce with medicines, you will be required to take a local steroid block injection around the shoulder joint by a local orthopedic doctor.

This is a professional suggestion subjected to the actual examination of reports, images, and inputs provided to me. It can be correlated with clinical findings for accurate diagnosis. If possible, send me the MRI scan images so that I can see and diagnose accurately.

Follow-up after a week.

Hope this has addressed your concern.
