    My shoulder issue, which is very painful, turned out to be a fairly large calcuium deposit in my rotator cuff tendon. I am having the deposit broken up and aspirated next week.

    The doctor I went to said these deposits are fairly common, especially in women over 50.

I woke up one morning a few days later and the pain was gone. The pain came back, randomly, several times over the last 6 months. Even when the excruciating pain was not there my shoulder/arm ached, "caught", popped almost all the time, especially at night.

    The last time, about 3 weeks ago, the excruciating pain happen again when I stood up from the couch. It was so bad I thought I might vomit. I made a doctor's appt that day.

    I had x-rays and an ultrasound. Both showed the deposit. The ultrasound also showed a very inflamed bursa/tendon.

    Oh, Marcadav - that sounds awful! I cringed as I read you're description of the pain. EEEESH! Mine isn't nearly that bad! I've had this off and on for the better part of my adult life. It goes away if I am gentle and remember not to sleep with my arm up under my pillow. I saw a doctor about it 25 years ago and he told me just be careful and take NSAIDS for the pain and inflammation. I'm sure it will be fine. But I have read that acupuncture can help with the inflammation. I'm going to see if they do that at my doctors office or if not if they can suggest someone.

    Hope you get it taken care of without any lasting problems! You must be anxious to have it stop hurting!!

    At work - taking a little break. My duties keep expanding and I think I need to start coming in a little earlier every day. Now I also have to tally the cash box everyday and add up the receipts from the day before - nothing big - but it adds time to my workload. I'm waiting for the phones to be turned over at 4:30 so I can record the new message on the patient line. Until then I have plenty of new patient charts to work on. It still amazes me how sick some of these people are!!!

    I put on my first estrogen patch this morning. I decided to stretch out the time between changing patches so they will last until my next appointment. If I wait 4 days between changes I will have enough to last until 2 days before my next appt.

    It sounds like they are keeping you busy. I'm using acupuncture for my shoulder at the moment. I can't say if it is having much effect. I hope you have better results.

    Thursday is my early day at the office. I'm not a morning person so this is difficult for me. But - here we go! Have a great day all!

    home now The day was busy but good.

    Came home and put bad things in my mouth. Namely m&m's. I didn't eat breakfast due to the early hour and lack of time so when I got home I was famished!

    Weight is still holding at 190
