Diabetes does run in my family. last checked i was pre diabetic. but nt real high. not sure about thyroid. No known injury to my shoulder. A lot of pain in several joints just figured it was an age factor though. Tylenol is knocking out the throbbing pain but pain is still there when trying to move my arm.
