Hi,
How are you? What other symptoms are present?  How was your MRI result? Was there history of trauma or injury in this area?  The pain could indeed be due to musculoskeletal  and even pulmonary issues and may warrant further evaluation for proper diagnosis.  A rotator cuff  injury may lead to pain and restricted movement of the arm. The result of the imaging study will  greatly help determine the underlying cause. Take care and do keep us posted.

I went to the Dr. yesterday but they hadn't received the results yet and they are closed for the holiday so it will be at least Monday before I hear anything.I use to carry everything on my left side and carry very heavy things on my shoulder and the Dr. thought that's what could have caused it.He said if nothing shows up on the shoulder mri we will see about getting some imaging on my neck.I am wondering now if it might be in my spine.Its feels like it is in my back,neck and left shoulder and upper chest.I think I am driving the Dr. office crazy and they are getting tired of me.They say my heart and lungs are fine.What type of Musculoskeletal things are you thinking?It has gotten worse over the passed week and it hurts for me to lay on my back and I already couldn't lay on my left side because it hurt.So my right side is getting the abuse right now.I just want to get some answers.I have been going to the chiropractor for several weeks I think it does some good.I don't have any other options for a Dr. I don't have insurance and I get free health care through my Indian Health Care clinic.What short of test do you think I should be getting?
