Treatment for Tendon/muscle pain
 
So i have this pain in my left shoulder and left bicept. Been taking Aleve so i dont have to deal with the pain. When to sports medicine guy and said i need to get a MRI but i dont have money for it now, and im not goina stop working out. So i was reading that like aleve if it a inflammation problem and then i was looking into it and wondering if it was a tendon problem....so i looked up and said that vitamin E and arginine might help with it.
Any suggestions? Id like to listen to the doctor but he didnt give me any clue till MRI which i cant afford....so ya

[B]Any suggestions?[/B][/QUOTE]Yeah, stop working out. At least until the pain subsides and/or you get diagnosis on what's going on.

RICE= Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation.
