Help!!!! I injured both of my shoulders and/or neck on Sept. 6, 2009. I've been to an orthopedic surgeon, PT for 8 months and they still have not figured out a diagnoses. I was at a computer which was placed too high for me for 7 hours (on and off). Ever since that 7 hours, I've had nothing but pain and stiffness in my shoulders and the side of my neck. Before that day, I had absolutely no pain or weakness.

Anti-inflammatory meds help some, and PT does stretch me to where I can reach the back of my head, but I've had no other relief. I want to know what my condition is called and how I can repair the damage!!!

I've had a cervical X-Ray (normal), X-rays of both shoulders (normal), MRI of both shoulders (appear normal, although there is a small white spot on one side which may indicate a slight separation of the rotator cuff and shoulder. I've had blood work: SED rate (normal), Lymes (normal), RA factor (normal), Thyroid/T4/TSH (normal), CA 10.5 - high.

I'm being sent to a rheumatologist to rule out pseudogout...............

Please help!
