Ashley, could you please share your experience, did you get rid of your pain?

Gymdandee, I have the same symptoms for the last 4 years, I saw many doctors, the first tried to fix it with inflammation pills, then physiotherapy for 6 months. When I didn't find a solution, he asked me to make endoscopy to see if there's an inflammation in my arm. Since the main pain was in my right arm. It took 6 months to recover from the surgery of endoscopy, since he said he cut the muscle joint (Tendon) and moved it. (I didn't know what to do in this case, I didn't want any surgery, he said he will just make endoscopy)

I saw another doctor, he asked for MRI for my neck and back, and also arm again. Nothing.
So he recommended again physio. Before he gave me gabrica and muserol for 1.5 months.
Nothing changed, even after electric treatment with the physio, now I don't know what to do. I don't wanna have any new plans from scratch. I just want to understand what is my problem so I can advise myself. Doctors seems not really caring about cases in general, try what they know and move on, then when it doesn't work, they just leave the case unclear.

Thanks your help in advance.

Gymdandee was kicked off this site several years ago, so he isn't around to answer.  I can tell you he had terrible back problems and did solve them by doing PT with a program quite different from the usual one PT offers.  They guy was a fad for awhile, and on TV.  It got him back into the gym.  But again, he's no longer around.
