woke up two days ago with horrific pain along right shoulder, neck area. Have used deep heat , voltural, pain killersand heat pads with little relief. Seems to be getting worse and cant raise right arm without pain. Also difficulty moving.

Any ideas suggestions. thanks

Sounds like you have a frozen shoulder pink. Hubby has had before and doctor said to try heat as in hot water bottle, then cold, as in some ice. 20 minutes each. Did help with the pain but he still ended up needing a cortisone injection which did clear it up after a couple of days.
is your shoulder blade out of sync? Can you circle your shoulders? If painful, do it slowly.

yes OH tried taht but very painful
Get to the docs, if painkillers don`t work, could be nerve damage
If there was a dislocation, pink'd sure know about .
wear a scarf round neck - keep it warm.

Hope all well soon....g'nite

Google these two common conditions and see if either apply to your symptoms:

Supraspinatus tendinitis

Rotator cuff tendinitis.

There could be a multitude of causes, but the above two are the commonest.
Hey pink I hope you have got some medical advice this morning, feel better soon
