Calcific Tendonitis: Symptoms
The most common symptom is pain. In addition, as calcific tendonitis can cause impingement in the shoulder joint, it can also present many of the same symptoms as subacromial impingement. This may include a painful arc of movement when the arm is lifted out to the side and up to your ear. Some people report significant pain at night, which can interrupt their sleep. Others often describe a "locking" sensation in their arm when attempting certain movements.
It is important to report any symptoms of neck, shoulder, upper arm or hand pain to Mr. Cole. In addition, remember to tell him if you feel pins and needles or tingling in your arm or hand. This is because they may indicate that the pain is coming from your neck, via the nerves in your arm.
