I have all these symptoms too... the heart palpitations, sweating, flushing, feeling extra emotional. My coworker said something to me that normally would not upset me and I started to have tears in my eyes and I couldn't help it at all I had to walk away. I thought it was probably all due to my anxiety but I've never experienced it like this before. I got 8 trigger point injections in my thoracic area on Friday, so it's almost been a week for me now. I am also wondering when my back pain should feel better?? My doctor also never told me any of this, I can't believe how common it seems to be!!
I have supraspinatus tendonosis and am told biceps tendon and bursa implicated as well. For years I have slept on my stomach hugging one pillow in each arm and angling my head down. Now, with this injury I try to sleep on my back but can’t. I assume that it is bad to sleep on my stomach with my arms up, but honestly, its more comfortable than on my “good” side which hurts my ‘bad’ shoulder – guess I need a pillow under that arm. And oddly, snuggling up on my ‘bad’ side, with shoulder against the underneath-pillow, isn’t bad at all.
