Some of the symptoms sound the same, but my hand did not swell up. There was radiating pain with must about any movement. I couldn’t move my shoulder much at all. But a MRI showed a problem in the nerve stem, coming from a cervical vertebrae for me. I don’t think mine had a thing to do with Graves, so I can’t help you here.
What symptoms did you have with this frozen shoulder? I’ve been trying to find out if anyone has had problems with their right arm and hand hurting and numbness with the hand swelling so its unable to use at times and sometimes for days. Doctor had me on steroids and now I just had an xray because the thinks it may be a pinched nerve in my neck. I think it has to do with GD? Any ideas from anyone out there? co1leen
Hi! Colleen I’ve had stiff neck and back and shoulder problems for years never had them investigated but I think it was probably something to do with the poor muscle tone of stomach and shoulders. Things like getting out of the bath, shaking doonas, sweeping, squatting and the similar I now realize why I couldn’t do them well. The medical books say this improves but I’m still waiting!! At least we can ask each other and know we’re not the only ones with strange problems. Also I’m sure I had many symptoms of GD going back 20 years finally coming to head when my eyes got huge. Good luck. Kast
Doctors thought I had TSO in 95 before they found GD in 96. Turns out GD causes muscle spasms in pectoral muscle which puts pressure on cortoid artery causing numbness and tingling in hand among other things. Often miss diagnosed as a varity of other problems. Been there done that!
