I have been seeing an orthopedic doctor about muscle knots in my neck, an MRI showed nothing. I feel it is related to my left shoulder as when I had rotator cuff surgery before most of my problems settled in my neck-very sore. I'm told that is unusual but it is not for me. After seeing my doctor a second time about getting some help, I explained that I have front shoulder pain and am thinking it is my shoulder casuing all the muscle knots in my neck. A second MRI showed nothing wrong again. Now the pain has moved in to my inside armpit and is very tight and uncomfortable. The more active I try to be, the more stiff and sore I am from my neck all the way through the shoulder. I'm told an MRI doesn't show everything and am wondering if exploratory surgery would be right for me. Something has to be causing the 3 inch long muscle knot in my neck. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
