Just be careful about what type of exercises you do, PT had me lifting weights and the dr told me that was NOT helping (which is why PT eventually sent me to the dr...). FYI, I had seen primary first, then PT, then ortho.
If you are talking about a pure tendon issue I don't think you need the ice... You want to be nice a warm BEFORE you stretch then afterwords there is no need to ice it.

That is a long time.. Too long actually. Were you in some kind of car accident or did this just happen out of the blue?

THAT was my last visit..

He did tell me that it takes 5 OTC Aleve to equal 1 Rx one but still.... I knew that many in a day would cause me major problems along with 4 Tylenol.

My shoulder has gotten better but at times it wants to flare up so I be more careful with it until it passes. At least I can use that arm now where in the beginning, I couldn't even lift it and the pain kept me awake at night.

I blame my "injury" on statin drugs. I had done NOTHING to that shoulder, just woke up one morning and there it was with no signs or warning of anything being wrong prior to that morning. Statins are known also, to cause tendon damage.
See, you never addressed the issue. Talking shots or even tylenol is not going to work. You need to be doing daily THERAPY. I would look on the internet for a specialist who helps athletes with sports injures.

Cipro may have caused your tendonitis:

Cipro has received a 'black box' warning from the FDA warning of the dangers of tendon damage from Cipro use.

I've had tendonitis on the back on my Achilles Tendon from running a few times. But it goes away after 3-4 days. It was normally running too hard, too long, and not the right shoes either.

Default tendonitis cleared

I was a gymnast in high school, and had recurring tendonitis ever since until 2 years ago when I found an inexpensive therapy laser. It has not bothered me one time in the last 2 years, after about a week of lasering it. Since then I have heard of doctors that have similar lasers and they charge up to $100 to treat. The laser costs a little more than that, but I have used it for dozens of other issues from back pain to infections and had great results as well.

i'm concerned about the treatment advice here. if your tendons are in fact damaged from fluoroquinolone antibiotics, you need to treat them, recover differently than if you developed tendinitis from sports injury or over usage. i wonder if you have recovered yet? also, just fyi - if it is FQ induced, you need to avoid certain drugs, rx, that can prolong the condition or create permanent damage.
