I forgot to mention.....besides the Bone Marrow Scan, the Dr. wants a Chest Xray too. What does a Chest Xray have anything to do with Shoulder Pain? And would these two additional tests show anything more than the Shoulder Xray and MRI?????
Sorry for all the questions, I am just trying to understand all this and especially a Chest Xray that dosen't seem like it should be associated with Shoulder Pain.
A cheast x-Ray may be to see if ur ribs are aligned and whether they may be contributing to any of your shoulder problems, you may want to request a scan of your neck while you are undergoing tests as sometimes compressed nerves in the cervical region may also cause refered pain to your shoulder, good luck
