Brief Answer:
A tight blood sugar control is required.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mrs. XXXXXXX

Going through your history and reports it appears that you are having Peri-Arthritis of your shoulders with probably Diaberic Painful Neuropathy in the background of uncontrolled sugar levels and satisfactory status of BP and Thyroid status.

Now, before we conclude at the above diagnosis, it is important that a clinician has excluded a potentially more serious cause for arm pain, that is Ischaemic Heart Disease.

In order to do that we shuld know whether your pain increases by physical effort like climbing stairs, or becomes worse by lifting arms above your head. Does pressing around your shoulders hurt too much?
If your pain doesn't aggravate by walking particularly up stairs and is made worse by movement of arms beyond certain limit, Frozen Shoulder (Periarthritis) is more likely.

However, you must see a Physician / Cardiologistto get some investigations like an ECG or a TMT to exclude heart disease.

Now, if it has been ruled out then apart from just getting VitaminB12 injections, a tight control of Diabetes, if necessary with Insulin, is more important. Also, you may have to do some graded shoulder exercise under supervision of some physiotherapist.

I hope this information would be useful for you.

As per the policies of this website, prescribing medicines and deciding doses without actually seeing a patient physically is not desirable.

Wishing you a speedy recovery..

Hi I have a pain between my shoulder blades and a headache. I am an athlete and run about 40 miles per week. I am very active. I have had this pain before some months ago and it went away and now it came back. I only feel it when i do something like run or jump. It is uncomfortable and I cannot run as fast as I like to. I have gas too. The headache goes away with advil or tylenol.
I do not have insurance and trying desperately to get approved and will go to a doctor once I know I am approved. What can this be? This has been this way for a few days. I only feel it when I'm jumping or running.
