Question: I am having shoulder pain on left shoulder. Visited a doctor once and they told me muscle strain and not strain my hands too much. But pain is there sometimes even now.

Please give me suggestions or exercise routines to follow to cure.

Brief Answer:
Physiotherapy

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

You can try these to relieve your pain:
1) Avoid activities that make your symptoms worse.
2)Use ice packs.
3)Painkillers like Dolo or Ibuprofen only when pain is severe.
4) Physiotherapy : You should meet a physiotherapist for this.
- Specific shoulder exercises – for example, if you have shoulder instability, you may be given exercises to strengthen your shoulder
- Massage – where the physiotherapist uses their hands to manipulate your shoulder
5) Have lots of fluids.

I would suggest you to meet a physiotherapist for shoulder exercises. If your symptoms persists even after exercise, meet an orthopedician for a detailed examination.

I hope this answered your query.

What do you recommend for HRT: Prempro or prometherine and estradiol? and at what dose? I am 56, last August I stopped Nordette BCP treatment after 5 years for peri menopausal symptoms due to developing nausea, right eye pain, sternal and shoulder pain, and increase in blood pressure for two months. My LMP was also last August. I felt a lot better the next few months with normal Bp, though my sternal pain continued resulting in a negative echocardiogram. I had return of mild hot flashes and insomnia though. Over the last several months, joint and muscle pain and fatigue, negative serology for RA, ANA, etc. with recommendation for HRT.
