Not happy

My left shoulder has been sore since the beginning of August. On my first visit to the doctor in September, he told me to do range-of-motion exercises. After several months of increasing pain I saw him again and told him the exercises I'd been doing. He finally sent me for an ultrasound. I had that ultrasound an hour ago.

Generally, the technician won't tell you anything; but I was showing an interest and the guy doing the ultrasound was actually a doctor who trains the technicians. He showed me on the pictures exactly what's wrong. Apparently, I have bicep tendonitis (where the tendon from the bicep attaches to the shoulder). I did some research. Number one on all the treatment lists is to *stop using it*. Those who know what I do for a living know this is not an option, especially right now. We are in the middle of moving my business. That involves moving TVs and monitors. The TV I got in yesterday weighs 68kg. How can I not use my shoulder? I don't have help to do all the lifting. I still need to function. I guess I'll just have to hope we get the move over and done before I go back to see the doctor and get *ordered* to stop using it. Of course, that will mean more pain and possibly more damage. In the meantime, I'll try to be careful with it.

Anyway, I'm not happy about this.
