excruciating pain lying down, coughing, laughing, numbness tingling left arm

My husband is having problems right now saw a Physician Assistant 1 1/2 weeks ago 1st time he saw a doctor in 36 years. She orders shoulder xray doesn't show anything. orders MRI. Tried three times with progressive levels of medication. too excruciating couldn't do it. Daughter who is a Dr. of Physical Therapy home for father's day does an assessment and says its not his shoulder its his neck. Back to the PA this AM. She does a neck xray says it doesn't show anything scheduals him for Physical Therapy in 5 days.??????

Hi...if the issue is soft tissue it will not show on an xray...ask for a MRI of the cervical spine.

Good luck
