I have intense right shoulder pain. I'm guessing possible bursitis. Advil (ibuprofen) and ice aren't helping. Will anything help before i see the doc in 3 days?

In brief: Shoulder pain

Sorry you are having such pain.
You may try some moist heat (wet hot towel) wrapped around shoulder alternating with ice packs. This helps with circulation and swelling. You may also try bath soak with epsom salt.

In brief: Shoulder pain

Use advil at antiinflammatory strength 4 200mg tabs each time 3 times a day.
Can take 2 es tylenol (acetaminophen) with it for extra pain relief. Continue to ice. May do scapular stabilizer strengthening exercises and minimize overhead activity.
