    I'm curious is this a symptom of this disease? I have had a frozen shoulder almost two yrs ago needed manipulation. Now the other shoulder is on it's way, even with exercise.

    So sorry to hear about your frozen shoulder problems. I know the pain. Had to have surgery for frozen shoulder in fall of 2000. I had been in bed off and on for several months with bad fibro flares. Surgery was very successful. Hope you get better soon and start doing therapy right a way to keep the shoulder supple. Maybe this shoulder thing is another similarity....what's next!!

    BUMP I'm so sorry to here about your shoulder I know how much it can hurt. I did read somewhere that it was a fibro thing.
    I also had a frozen shoulder a few years ago. I got a cortizone injection and that hurt so much that I had to go home and go to bed.. it helped for a little while but then came back worse.. so then I started pyshical therapy, I didn't do the shoulder exercises at home like I was suppose to, so I didn't get better. when I went back to see the Dr. he told me that he was going to do manipulation under anestheshia on my shoulder... I was quite the chicken and begged him for one more shot with the pyshical therapy. this time I was a good girl and did all my exercises at home no matter what and thats how I got better... and my shoulder was wicked bad.
    God Bless
