Can frozen shoulder reoccur?

Quite a few years ago I had frozen shoulders in both shoulders (I am diabetic). Two nights ago I fell heavily on my left shoulder and side and since then have experienced tingling in the left arm and shoulder, pain (that wakes me at night) and restricted movement. I am concerned that I may develop a frozen left shoulder again. I was told that once a person had experienced frozen shoulders and recovered, it would not re occur. Can you advise me please? Beth
