I believe I have an Abcess in my shoulder
As soon as possible I'm making the soonest appointment to see my PCP. It started off as some pip, but has gotten increasingly debilitative every day for the past 4 days. There may be no redness but my mobility from the swelling is getting bad along with the pain.
Has anyone had this and was was the outcome? Hoping a RX for strong antibotics will take care of it? Also when they ask when I go to make the appointment I don't want to tell them what I'm there for, me and my Doctor are farliy cool and sure if I ask him he will leave the part out of my file that I have been injecting steroids . I assume it could cause a lot of insurance problems.

You could also pay out of pocket and see a different physician. That way his records wont go to your insurance company.

steriod use to go into my medical file for future insurance companies.
So far I'm going with the b-12 injection. do u think a slew of antibotics will take care of it?

Go to a doc in the box and don't put down a primary physician in the paper work. You want no traces of anything that can be used in the future to deny a claim. Trust me.

Just got back from the dr's nothing to drain? Just gave me a Rx for antibiotics and a follow up in two weeks if necessary. Man I minimal movement in m arm and cannot lift it parallel if my life depended on it? he did say I had some fibrous buildup and needed to lay off on the shoulders for my Vitamin b injections. Maybe some hot compresses to help things break up?

Glad they didn't have to drain it man. That would mean it was bad. After you're all healed up take a lacrosse ball and roll on it up against a wall. It'll help to break up scar tissue and adhesions in the muscle. It'll help with ROM too.

happy to report that with only one day of antibiotics there is an improvement at the injection site already.

Also had a valid reason to miss a day of work, which is always a pleasure.
