This question is for my wife, who is aged 38 years. She has been complaining for intermittent pain on the shoulder tendon, and sometimes suddenly it radiates down. There is a specific place exactly behind the shoulder on the joint of shoulder blade. But the pain is not persistent, it might appear sometime. Doing work does not increase it. Lying down turned left increases the pain. Sometimes just lying down straight and waking up in the morning shows the pain. She has not taken up any medicines for it so far, just going by home remedies. Initially one doctor suggested taking calcium, a year ago. But after that there is no improvement. On looking through the internet, the symptoms appear to be of tendonitis of shoulder but not sure. Please let me know how to proceed with treatment. She does not take pain killer as stomach upsets.
