One of the stars of ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” is suffering from a painful medical condition, the Los Angeles Times reports.
The star is actress Teri Hatcher, who is suffering from a frozen shoulder, according to the story. The ailment causes excruciating pain and immobility of the arm.
Hatcher revealed that she’s suffering from the condition, telling the TV show “Extra”: "It’s basically left me pretty much not functioning with my left arm. … I can’t hook a bra anymore."
Frozen shoulder, according to medical experts, is clinically called adhesive capsulitis. The shoulder capsule, the strong connective tissue surrounding the shoulder joint, becomes inflamed and constricted, making it painful to move.
Hatcher has been getting cortisone shots to alleviate the pain and has been trying to work despite the discomfort.
