Avatar f tn I had a shoulder decompression and rotator cuff tear repair about 5 years ago, A few months ago I had a ultrasound which showed a full thickness tear, bursitis and osteoarthritis, went to see a ortho surgeon who then got me to have a MRI scan. The scan showed no tear but alot of fluid in the shoulder, he called it a angry shoulder? Is it possible for a MRI to be wrong? If not what is with the fluid in the shoulder? can someone please help.
Avatar n tn I understand these should be avoided while pregnant, but what if they are medically necessary? Has anyone gotten an MRI or Cat Scan while pregnant? What was the outcome, did it have an affect on your baby? Was it worth it? I have been experiencing agonizing pain in my left shoulder, neck, and arm, that sometimes radiates to my chest, making it hard to breathe. I am having a really hard time sleeping, and even functioning, and my quality of life has gone down because of it.

Avatar n tn I have had awful pain in my right arm/shoulder for 4 months. MRI showed torn biceps tendon and other small bursal tears and tendonitis, and a rotator cuff tear. Would a bone metastases have been revealed on the MRI of my arm and shoulder? Should I ask for a bone scan? I am 57 years old and have been cancer free since a stage 3 breast cancer diagnosis 8 years ago. I am worried that the pain does not go away.
Avatar f tn Had a MRI in October. Doctor sent me to physical therapy due to a fall with me landing on my right shoulder. It is still acting up. Now he wants me to have a "arthrogram MRI." I went to get the procedure done today. The radiologist will not give me the arthrogram MRI. He says that I am "severely allergic" to it. I get severe hives, vomit, eyes swell badly. He wants my ortho doctor to give me a prescription for two medications that may counteract it.
Avatar m tn Hi there.. For the last year and a half I have had pains in my left shoulder which also seems to be giving me "pins & needles" down to my finger tips sometimes. the pain is coming from the underneath of my shoulder blade and normally hurts more while sitting down.
Avatar m tn Most beneficial is either a CT scan or a MRI scan. Your PCP will determine which scan will be the better diagnostic tool based on his clinical examination. It is also possible, as ChronicPain suggests that you actually injured the anatomy in your cervical spine. Again there are too many possibilities to "guess" which injury may have occurred when you pushed that vehicle. Please let us know how you are doing.
Avatar f tn ve not had an MRI before, anyway the MRI will likely not show up all that can cause neck and shoulder pain but at the very least it will help rule out a lot of causes if your results are not abnormal. Hope it helps.....
Avatar f tn I wouold strongly advise you to see your Doctor and possibly ask for either an x-ray or MRI. I am not a candidate for an MRI since I have metal in the back.
Avatar m tn I was involved in a road accident xmas day 2009, i was teated for a frozen shoulder however the pain continued and after 10 months was referred to an MRI scan and Xray, mri showed that my supraspinatus was severed, I was seen by an orthopeadic surgeon Feb 2012 who wrote a report which stated that I had a partial tear pre-existing, I have never had the effected shoulder examined prior to the accident as I have never had any problems with that shoulder, the report states that the full tear has bee
Avatar n tn X-ray is must, but it will tell about the condition of the bone. To know about the muscle pathology, i would suggest you to do the MRI scan and then proceed to an Orthopaedician.

1134013 tn?1272933532 I have had a chronic pain in my upper lef shoulder/traps for the past 5 years.I had been to physical therapy for about 2 months and that seemed to bring the pain down but it is back again. Some people have told me to go to a Neruologist or get a MRI. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions...Some things that didnt work were over the counter drugs, electro therapy, and pro. massages. Ice helped but not long term obviously.
Avatar m tn I have had 2 steroid injections into the shoulder joint with no effect and have now been referred for am MRI scan. Unfortunately the wait is up to one month for this to be done.
Avatar f tn I was told from one man (alternative medecine) that all comes from the nerve on the right shoulder. In my case is also my shoulder blade swollen. It is long way from the right shoulder until right eye. To me helps warmth and tablets for muscles and better circulation of my head. I had CT Scan of my neck, CT Scan of my head and x-rays of my right shoulder. I am still confused.
Avatar n tn I recently had a second MRI of my left shoulder following a car accident this past August. The first MRI showed enlarged axillary lymph nodes. My doctor couldn't feel anything and all my blood work was fine so we just let it go. Well after continuing shoulder pain I just had a second MRI which still showed enlarged lymph nodes. Now my doctor is concerned that I might have breast cancer! I'm only 29years old and otherwise healthy...just a sore shoulder.

Avatar f tn So I went to another Orthopedic who reviewed the MRI and said that the he seen no indication of a tear in the MRI and that it was a crush tissue injury. So who do I believe? The Radiologist and first Orthopedic or the 2nd who has discounted the previous diagnosis? I have been doing physio for over 14 months with no remarkable improvement.
1069644 tn?1276928863 I have had removal of gallbladder, endoscopy and ultrasound x 3, Hida scan x2, cat scan and MRI of abdomen, chest ct and MRI, stress test, blood tests 2x month checking liver, pancreas, cbc and h pylori. Everything has come back normal except the liver enzymes when I was in the hospital and the Hida scan. There are two types of Hida that I know of, the one for the gallbladder and the one I just had which does the test in reverse order and checks the sphincter.
Avatar f tn A year ago I was walking and felt a burning in between my shoulder blades. The pain has gotten worse and is now along left side of neck, under left shoulder blade and through my hip. Sometimes my chest hurts between breasts and down left rib cage. Had lots of blood work, ct scan, endoscopy, colonoscopy and everything is normal. Waiting for MRI results to come back. The pain is constant and is causing anxiety attacks. Hoping to feel better soon for myself and so I can be a happy mom again.
Avatar n tn I've been dealing with left shoulder pain for approximately 10 months - I've seen several doctors, had x-rays, MRIs, bone scan, EMG and nerve conduction tests all to come back normal. Just this week, the pain in my left shoulder has started to improve while the shooting pain down my arm on the right side has started to occur. Could this be a pinched nerve in my neck? What should my next step be? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
