:confused: I recently had an MRI in which the results stated that I had a torn rotator cuff. I was sent to an orthopedic surgeon. It was almost 2 months since the MRI until I was able to see the OS. About 2 weeks prior, my neck started getting stiff and was very painful. The OS said that he didn't think it was a tear, but severe inflamation in the shoulder and he thought it was cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve in my neck). I injured my right shoulder almost a year prior to the MRI. Symptoms came and went during that time, then finally did not go away and worstened, hence the MRI. The OS shot cortizone in my shoulder and said that if the pain went away, he would know it was the shoulder, if not he said it was my neck. In a day or two the pain in my shoulder was completely gone, but the neck continues to feel like it is pulling no matter which direction I turn or bend (neck pain is on the same side). Now 2 weeks later, my shoulder is starting to hurt again, and the muscles feel very sore and weak. I don't see the OS until Oct. 4.
Anyone else had these problems.
