First, thank you SO much for this great site! I have found wonderful information, but probably the BEST is my recent discovery of transdermal magnesium.
I have been suffering with frozen shoulder for two years, this coming May. The regular doctors just told me to do my pt exercises and if it didn't get better, I could get a cortisone shot or perhaps surgery. I haven't been back. They gave me ibuprofin and I was taking it a lot but started to worry about liver overload and other effects.
This FS condition has severely impacted my life in so many ways! I was gettting so sick of the constant pain and sleepless nights. I found "Frozen Shoulder Friends" page on Facebook and it has been a lifesaver--just to connect with other people suffering with this. (I recommend other FS sufferers to check it out--great group of folks with lots of humor which helps when you are in agonizing pain.)
A few days ago, I read up on transdermal magnesium here. I then scooted down to my local health food store and purchased a bottle. I came home and began applying it, massaging it into my shoulder and then to my arms, legs, and feet.
I WAS ASTONISHED BY THE IMMEDIATE RESULTS! ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHED.
First, I am a chronic insomniac and had the best sleep I've had in YEARS (even before this Frozen Shoulder s****.
Second! Within an hour or so, my Frozen Shoulder went from OW OW OW! To mildly achey. I could NOT believe it. My range of motion (before I hit the pain mark) increased a good 12 inches upward.
I have rabidly devoured any information on the internet about transdermal magnesium therapy and there is a LOT of information out there. This is GOOD STUFF.
I shared with my fellow Facebook sufferers. There were some who, naturally, scoffed. (I would too--I am skeptical of such miracle cures myself.) But one women in England went out and bought a bottle right away and SHE IS HAVING THE SAME BENEFITS!
I can't say enough about this therapy except it WORKS. I am totally sold on its benefits and wonder why doctors aren't prescribing this, both for my condition--and so many others!
Thank you SO much, earthclinic. You have literally changed my life. I love you!
