Hello and hope you are doing well.

A disorder called fibromyalgia can produce these symptoms (tenderness). Sometimes repetitive injuries or strain can also produce these symptoms. Inflammation of the muscles, joints and surrounding soft tissues like bursa can also cause pain. They are diagnosed by a physical examination. Sometimes blood tests, x rays, bone scan, CT and nerve conduction studies can help clinch the diagnosis. Treatment usually depends on the cause and pain killers are given if the pain is severe.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

This helped considerably, I was afraid that I had possibly gotten blood clots back in my lungs again but I don't think I would have had the shoulder issues or the tingling in those areas.  Time to see my doctor again.

I forgot to tell you that I am having cervical face injections with neurotomy tomorrow at C3 thru C7 for back issues.  Have to have two trial injections first before I have the final injection.
