Hi, sorry for the long thread lots of things going on, I have had trouble in my right shoulder for over a year. 

Excruciating pain , no sleep etc. nothing helped chiropractor, physio, pain killers.

it eventually went into a frozen shoulder, now I have quite a lot of movement times I still get really bad pains keeping me awake I survive on 3/4 hours sleep.

now my other shoulder is paining me , I also have pain in my neck when I move it from side to side,

I'm thinking my neck could be the cause?.. I have had an X-ray on My right shoulder showed no arthritis thank goodness . But I also had an ultra sound, which showed the long head of biceps tendon is intact and normally sited.

the supraspinatus was wholly intact but demonstrated tendonpathic thickening and degeneration.

normal rotator cuff and tendons, no significant burial thickening.

on dynamic imaging bursa buckling was noted on abduction normal a/c joint. No idea what anything means ?

im worried that it's my neck causing most but I can't seem to get an X-ray on neck or other shoulder as no-one is listening. 

I am due to have surgery the end of the month, I'm concerned that I have not been looked at holistically and all the options haven't been done, can anyone offer me any advice?.. Please.

    I doubt anyone here is medically qualified to interpret that. Sorry. Is the surgery to explore the shoulder? Or have they an idea? Or is it for something else?

    Have you got the chance to find a Bowen practitioner before the surgery? Google bowen4life and have a look at what it is - I and a lot of friends have found it very helpful for muscular problems and it has a good reputation for frozen shoulder and pain relief. It is always worth trying before something as drastic as shoulder surgery if they don't really know what is going on. It is sort of chiropractic for soft tissue - chiropractic is great for bones but doesn't do a lot for muscles.

    "dynamic imaging bursa buckling was noted".

    This suggests sub-acromial impingement or coracoid impingement. More likely sub-acromial impingement, possibly caused by a bone spur.\

    The surgical fix for ths is decompression surgery of the shoulder. I would ask your surgeon about this possibility. It's quite a simple procedure and recovery is typically three or four months.

    Good luck NICK
