Feeling very new to this all and hoping someone might be able to help. Long story short I have been having shoulder pain for years, increasing the flare ups are more intense. Finally seeing the doctors who referred me to the physio and for an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed up erosion on both of my shoulders, despite having pain mostly in the right shoulder only. A referral to the rheumatologist resulted in serveral blood tests, an examination and an X-ray, and now an MRI scan which I am waiting for.
I believe the rheumatologist is looking for evidence of rheumatoid arthritis, and only really seemed concerned about the erosion on the bone. Really hoping for a diagnosis of some description and some treatment that may resolve the pain. Just wondering if anyone had a similar experience or any ideas what an MRI would do to help the diagnosis?
