Hello doctor,

I have a chronic right shoulder pain, especially when lifting up an arm or moving arm sideways. I have discomfort when resting on my right side in bed. Also feeling a slightly loose shoulder or detached arm when rotating the arm, and the occasional feeling of nerve pinching, although no paralyzing pain. I would appreciate if you could kindly review my right shoulder MRI images, for a second opinion. I have had this issue for many years, but it appeared when exercising or under heavy restraint. Presently, it only takes a swift or unconscious movement or light load to feel discomfort. I have started with Aceclofenac 100 mg twice a day, one week ago, as per doctor´s advice, although he mentioned that it was not standard practice for chronic cases.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your shoulder MRI (attachment removed to protect patient identity) is not showing any serious concerns but there are some areas which might be causing mild pain and discomfort during movements. In the coronal images, there is likely early degenerative changes in the distal supraspinatus tendon which shows mild thinning of the muscle tendon. There is slightly decreased fat between the acromion and supraspinatus tendon and it can cause mild pain and discomfort with lifting the arm.
