    Frozen shoulder

    I've been diagnosed with a frozen right shoulder stemming from osteoarthritis. I've had this for many years, but was just told of it 2 years ago. Is there a cure for this aside from surgery? I was told this has been caused from giving in to the pain. I've got limited motion and severe pain when I try to move it normally and usually suffer when it's going to rain, snow or just be humid. So, what can be done? Anyone have the same problem? Maybe with a different joint?

    Frozen shoulder usually goes away on its own within a few months to a year. If you're still having problems then there's probably something else going on. If you haven't already, you should go see an orthopedic surgeon.
