retired from 45 years office work, 5 years ago and left shoulder was solid. Began housecleaning part time 2 mornings a week last October and shoulder has loosened somewhat. Work with a friend and she vacuums most of the time. Vacuumed myself while she was away, last week - shoulder is very painful and pain has gone into my neck, head, and lumbar region. Should say have always had neck problem and have carpel tunnel. 2 lots of injections for carpel tunnel have helped, but pins and needles still felt in right hand occasionally which doc says is probably coming from neck - left arm and hand ache with pain from left shoulder. Over many years when working, visited Osteopaths, and Chiropractors, lots of back, shoulders and neck massages. Since retirement have reduced visits somewhat - pretty expensive! Left shoulder big problem at present. Thank you.
