Default having tendinitis problems

I've been a type1for 30years now. I'm having issues with severe neck and shoulder pain and my GP says its tendinitis from my diabetes. Anyone else having this issue and is there any solutions? Thanks

I didn't know that tendinitis could be caused by diabetes. I thought it was usually an injury due to sudden motion, impact, or repetition.

I too am having tendinitis issues on both shoulders. I aggravated my joints trying stand up paddle boarding this summer.diabetes definitely affects the joints. My Dr. Has prescribed 15 MG melodic am to lessen inflammation. I has helped quite a bit. Good luck.

My nurse has told me in the past that any condition you have will be worse and settle in earlier in life when you are diabetic. So say arthritis runs in your family then you will get it and it will be worse and you will be younger when you get it than say your siblings who are not diabetic. Diabetes affects every part of you.

I recently found a soft bump on the back of my hand, and my doctor thinks it may be tendentious developing.

Tendinitis is common with diabetes. A number of diabetics get "trigger finger". I've been diabetic for 25+ years and have neck, shoulder and hand tendonitis as well. It is important to seek support of you have trigger fingers particularly - this is when the tendon is getting stuck. Be also mindful of cortisone injections. In diabetics rupture of the tendon is more common. Best of luck with it; and stay on top of it
