Have a failed lower back fusion and been on low dose hydrocodone for 7 years. Last 3 years I have to have cortizone injections in my knees, and now the xrays shows bone to bone in my shoulder, Doc says its beyond cortizone and gives a numbing injections. Need a shoulder replacement. Is it from long term use of the pain meds or caffeine ?
In fairly good shape, not overweight. Thanks R.Long

From this study (1 day ago):
After an elbow injury I have received x-rays and been to doctors and they believe it is just a contusion to the elbow. The pain continues to increase, it has become constant pain in the elbow (where the injury occurred), down to my wrist, and up to my shoulder. I cannot move it without sending shooting pains that immobilize me down to my fingers and up to my shoulder. I have been having it in a sling, and icing it and taking ibuprofen and tramadol which only barely dull the pain.
Is this really only a contusion? How long should I wait before seeking more medical help

Stomach ache and occasional rectal bleeding some stomach discomfort
