Shoulder pain for about 6 years please help me

Hey guys! I’m a healthy 21 year old female. When I say healthy I mean i have great health besides my shoulder pain. This pain has been going on since my sophomore year of high school when I was cheerleading. Ever since then my pain has gotten worse. I’ve been to mult. docotors had pt 5 times, mris, X-rays,ya sounds, emg, you name it. And they just can’t figure out what’s wrong with me. Recently they found a little mark on my labrum but the surgeon said where my pain is doesn’t match it so surgery is no use. My shoulder grinds on what feels like my ribs, it’s a dull constant pain that’s keeps me up and I just cry. Nothing is helping anymore, my arm just feels dead and sore. My neck on that side is starting to be sore. I just need answers I’m pretty sure the doctors thinks I’m lying and wants to send me to pt for another time and I just can’t. I’m desperate for any thoughts or tricks for pain. Could it be nerve related should I try a chiropractor, cupping, dry needling? Also forgot to mention I’ve had injections that didn’t seem to help in the long run!

How about a hot shower before going to bed, have you tried that to help with the pain or stiffness ? What about the mattress  or the bed you sleep on, Are you sure if it is not too stiff or too soft? And the way of sleeping, have you tried to make adjustments there? Especially the posture. I mean sometimes making such small adjustments in daily life does have an impact. For example a simple thing such as a change of pillow can bring relief.

What did the pt person say? Mobility issue?
