I have for the past few years, had supraspinatus tendonitis, subscapularis tendonitis, with bursitis on and off.

The tendinitis began quite severe, now it is mild. Both the tendon's also appear hypoechoic.

My doctor has said that, I am not experiencing anything major after ordering a few ultra-sound scans, sent me home which stretches.

I have had this pain for years and it is becoming unbearable. I also have degeneration appearing in my neck C-6.

It feels like to me that the tendons have not healed and there is a deeper problem being over looked but no one seems to help me.

I was wondering if anyone else had any tricky symptoms that just did not appear on ultrasounds or cat scans.

  • I've had the same. 2 ultrasounds and 1 cat scan and then 2 mri's. Took 3 years for them to find it.
