Hi

Is there anywhere I can go/send the pictures to get them looked at, I wont get the report for a few weeks , my GP had a look said he thinks it looks ok, but being a GP does not specialize in this area.

had the MRI as I am experiencing lots of pain all down left shoulder and arm. but movement of arm is absolutely fine, and then discovered that if I bend head backwards to the left the pain increases. hence MRI.

  • We can't read your report for you but if your're having problems with your shoulder and arm you could ask your GP to a referral to an otho Dr or rhematologist. If your Dr disagrees you can go to a walk in and maybe get a referral from them if you get the CD disc from the MRI center or see a CHiro for a referral but not for any treatment as you need to know if the cause is from a nerve. www.chirogeek.com was a useful website for me. How long have you had the injury? What makes it worse? What have you done to eliminate the pain? Ice/heat can be helpful also alternating or one of them for 20 minutes twice/day can help. I sent you a link in your PM. Take care. Charry

  • Thanks for the link, I have been referred and an orthopedic guys has had the MRI done, I have the disc of the scans but am waiting for the report, another couple of weeks and was wondering if in the mean time someone could look at the images and see if they see something. your link helps there.

    Had the pain for a 4 weeks. 4 years ago I and an anterior dislocation of left shoulder and I thought that maybe something had moved again and was causing the similar pain that I had during the dislocation. however arm and shoulder movement were fine and did not reduce or increase the pain. My GP noticed that if I moved my head backwards towards the left the pain increased and deduced that the arm pain was referred from cervical spine.

    I guess i will just need to grin and bear it until I see the specialist for the report later this month, in the meantime they have put me on ibuprofen for anti inflammatory and co-codamol for the pain.

    thanks for your help, much appreciated

  • I had a great Physiotherapist to some passive traction on me when i had a neck injury and my arm was killing me and numb also. She put my head in her lap almost and gently pulled and also used ultrasound and I've felt hardly any problems since. I have lumber problems now though. Did you get your report from the Ortho? www.chirogeek has some useful info on his site. Charry
