Has anyone had physical therapy for shoulder pain? If you had it for suspected frozen shoulder were you told that physical therapy had to hurt? Even if you took more pain meds and had a reduced range of motion because of physical therapy?
Can anyone tell me what characterizes shoulder pain of ankylosing spondylitis? Would spurring in the shoulder of an ankylosing spondylitis patient be due to the AS or something else?
I have AS and have had iritis within the past two years and the reason for my question is that my rheumatologist insists that my peripheral pain including hands, knees and shoulder are something else and not AS even though the Cosentyx has helped my knees. It hasn't helped my shoulder though.
I suspect I have both AS and osteoarthritis in that shoulder because it hurts differently while on Cosentyx than off of Cosentyx. But I am still interested in your opinion. Thanks, Danielle
