Brief Answer:
You need arthroscopic examination.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have read your query.

If I am your treating doctor I would do your physical examination and would see your MRI scan for exact conformation of your problem, I will also do your diagnostic arthroscopic examination which is must.

So I advise you to visit orthopedic surgen andand discuss all that I have explained to you.

By doing alone yoga and physiotherapy will not help you as your age is young.

I hope it helps.

Thanks,

Brief Answer:
Physiotherapist needed.

Detailed Answer:
Ok myfriend,

Then you should visit physiotherapy centre having good reputation.

Physiotherapist will advise you certain exercises which will help you.

Still if you don't get relief then go for diagnosticarthroscopic at least.

I hope you got my point.

Thanks,

I m using a Lidoderm patch for (light) shoulder pain. I had a rotator cuff tear surgery in Oct. 2013. At times I get pain in the shoulder (while exercising and/or playing tennis). Is Lidoderm the same as ibuprofen except it is in a patch form? Thanks for replying.

I have a pins & needles feeling deep into my left armpit that radiates down the inside of my arm to my elbow, several times during the day. Occasionally while this is happening, i will also have burning pain in the same shoulder - rotator cuff area radiating down the outside of the arm to the elbow. When this happens suddenly and is intense it scares me into thinking I may be having a heart attack, but I don't have any other symptoms, no shortness of breath, no heavyness, no sweats, otherwise I am a healthy 51 year old female. I thought it could be a pinched nerve, but would it come on so suddenly, last for about 15 mins, then subside. This first happened 6 months ago and then again 2 weeks ago. I don't have any neck pain when this happens. Can you have a pinched nerve w/o neck pain?
