Trying to reach out to the internet community to see if anyone can shed some light on what's going on with me. Here's my history:
I was playing softball in a recreational league for about a year (once per week), and was pretty casual about it. I do like to throw, though, and cut loose when I got the chance. A little over a year ago, I started getting a pain that would radiate up the right side of my neck to the back right side of my head, and some burning under my right shoulder blade (I'm right-handed). I decided to stop playing softball for a while to see if it would clear up, but that never helped. After a couple months I started having some aches in my mid-right back, and pain radiating down the outside of my right arm. I also get a little ache down around my bottom couple of ribs on my right side. My right scapula is winged just slightly, and sits a little lower than my left, and I get a little bit of grinding from my right collar bone when I rotate my shoulder around. There's no pain with any of the movements, just the general/persistent ache of the muscles and overall tightness of my right shoulder, neck and back.
What's been done so far:
MRI of cervical and thoracic vertebrae - Totally clear
MRI Arthrogram of right shoulder - Lots of inflammation in my subscapularis, some inflammation of my infrispinatus/supraspinatus.
X-rays - all totally clear.
EMG Nerve Test - Nerves all in great shape.
Corticosteroid Injection in right shoulder - no relief or change.
Lots of PT and stretching - no results yet.
I joined a gym about 2 weeks ago under the advice of my doctor to see if I could work out any possible muscle imbalances, but no results just yet (thought it's still pretty early.) I'm trying to focus on my serratus anterior to see if that is my problem from all the throwing I did in softball, but I'm getting pretty frustrated at this point. I've been trying to figure this out for about 16 months! Any insight would awesome!
