A:   Hi
Thanks for your query
I have gone through your query and understand your concern.
You are likely to be having bilateral frozen shoulder . It is adhesive capsulitis. It is more common in diabetes. Treatment of it is mobilization exercises of shoulder and analgesics. vitamin B and C is helpful in recovery.
Hope your query get answered.
Wishing you a good health.
Take care
