I've had recurring shoulder/upper arm on my left side for the past 4 months. It's more of a dull achy type pain, and I first noticed it shortly after I cut my left middle finger. I've had lab testing done and the first round indicated a slightly positive ANA level (1:160), however a repeat of the blood work indicated normal ANA marker. All of my other blood work was normal, including testing for Lyme disease. I had an EMG/Nerve conduction study done early on, which did not indicate any abnormalities. I also had an X-Ray taken of the shoulder which didn't indicate any issues. The pain has primarily been occurring in my left shoulder/left upper arm, with some slight burning/warmness sensation occurring down near my forearm (same side).
Just recently the pain has started alternating between this area and my Right area of the back of my neck and I've started having some minor muscle twitching occurring. The pain seems to be in either the one spot or the another, but not both at the same time. I was referred to an Orthopedic Doctor who could not find any abnormalities with my shoulder and ordered Physical Therapy for me. I would like to get a 2nd EMG test done, as the first one was very early on with the pain, as well as pushing for an MRI after I complete Physical Therapy.
Has anyone else experienced this and/or can suggest any other testing I should push for, and what type of doctor would be best to address this? I appreciate any feedback, thanks!
