I am a female in my mid-50s.  It is now 8 weeks since I had rotator cuff (right shoulder) surgery/debridement with bicep release.  Am currently in PT and making wonderful progress with regard to range of motion.  My concern is the spasms in the bicep muscle area that are CONSTANT and worse at night.  Sleep is difficult to impossible.  Pain killers work temporarily; muscle relaxers have no effect; hot and cold pacs provide temporary relief.  Are these spasms normal?  Is there any remedy/medication that would provide some relief?  I was told by my ortho doc that it would be about 9 months before I am pain free.  All opinions and suggestions for relief are welcome.  Help!
