And here's the thing (as I found out this weekend after a lot of bass and
guitar playing) -- playing seems to aggravate it!! I'm in really bad shape
today. But the thing is, I didn't have noticeable additional pain when I
was actually playing.
Anyone ever have a similar condition?
I've had it in both shoulders (fortunately, not at the same time). As
noted by someone else, it resolves itself over time (~18 months) and
I've got pretty much full range of motion back (maybe 90-95%).
However, this idea of "no pain while playing, but lots after" doesn't
sound like my experience at all. For me, the pain got excruciating
when I hit the limits of my range of motion--or example, playing
softball I could throw underhand fine but not overhand--sometimes I
would reflexively throw overhand which would result in 5 minutes of
horrible pain. However, there really wasn't any pain "hangover"--it
was mainly acute pain at the limitation of motion caused by the
adhesions. When it was in my left shoulder, I couldn't play upright
at all because it was too painful to lift my arm that high.
So, I'm not sure that what you're describing is the same thing--or
perhaps there is another issue in addition to the adhesions, maybe
caused by trying to compensate and then straining something. Of
course, your mileage may vary!
I agree, I'm not sure this is frozen shoulder. As I said my symptoms a few months ago seemed to match but not so much now.
