Health Tips

Oh, what a couple of days!

My other shoe drops and I need cortisone injections to help combat the excoriating bicep tendinitis pain.

My pain management doctor injects cortisone into my right shoulder and bicep to help ease the throbbing pain.

Each time I move my arm, mind numbing pain continuously screams.

The cortisone injections help to smolder the pain that radiates from my aching arm.

I am having an MRI of my shoulder and bicep.

It is bittersweet the soonest I was able to schedule an appointment is Friday, June 24th.

The later date of this MRI appointment was my karmic sign to go on a family vacation.

I do not think my doctor will be too thrilled about my decision especially since his Ultrasound machine enables him to see the tears in my bicep and odd cartilage formation.

I do not believe my upcoming MRI is not going to be good news. I hope that I am wrong.

My Rheumatologist

My fourth Rheumatologist seems wrong about Relapsing Polychondritis and Bicep Tendonitis.

When I questioned my Rheumatologist about the correlation between my tender, inflamed arm and Relapsing Polychondritis he told me there was no correlation between the two ailments.

My doctor went on to say that the tenderness in my burning arm and Relapsing Polychondritis are night and day. There is no relationship between my tender upper arm and Relapsing Polychondritis.

The physician continues with it must be my fibromyalgia that is causing my arm to burn.

how to use Google Scholar



I type “causes of tendonitis” into the Google search bar, and my suspicions are confirmed!

After I read numerous medical articles that confirm the link between Relapsing Polychondritis and Bicep Tendonitis I click over to Google Scholar.

To find the Google Scholar Search Bar you can just type Google Scholar into the regular Google Search Bar.

The Google Scholar search bar allows you to search conditions by medical article or case law.

There are numerous well-regarded medical papers that state Relapsing Polychondritis can cause Bicep Tendonitis.

My other tendons have been bothering me and showing the signs that my right bicep first screamed.

I guess it is better to know if my Relapsing Polychondritis is causing Tendonitis.

I wish my medical specialist knew more about Relapsing Polychondritis.

My doctor went to medical school, and he does not know many medically published details about the rare disease, Relapsing Polychondritis.

Perhaps, my Doctor Google could refresh his memory or teach my doctor a thing or a million things.

(Google Scholar is an awesome health reference for my doctor and is a fabulous health tip for everyone.)

I am not upset that my doctor does not know that Relapsing Polychondritis and Bicep Tendonitis are connected but the fact he adamantly told me the two were not related makes me angry.

For the time being:

  • I await my MRI.
  • I am putting together information for my Rheumatologist about Relapsing Polychondritis and Tendonitis. I do not want my rare situation to happen to another person.
  • I check in with the National Institute Of Health to find out where I am on their clinical wait list.

I need to be a patient at the NIH.

With fingers crossed the National Institute of Health will soon discover an effective medication to halt the progression of Relapsing Polychondritis.
