I hurt my Trapizius shoulder & Arm, lifting a cabinet & two+ months later i still have pain. Symptoms are acute if I bend or twist left where the cervical & Thoracic join causing pain to shoot around the bottom of my scapula to arm pit, down to elbow & top of forarm to fingers. The occupational Health Doc that my Employer sent me to said the MRI doesn't show anything that would cause my Pain. I would be very happy if someone could give me some insight on this.
