Hello, I went through your query, your doctor might have examined her, and doesn't found anything in particular for shoulder pain to take medicines regularly. Probably because of diabetic neuropathy(probably multivitamins are given) , in some cases of chronic pain all she needs is physiotherapy and proper rest, kindly follow your doctors advice. Still if you are not satisfied, consider taking 2nd opinion.
