Hello im a 25 year old male. Ive been having a stabbing pinching type of pain in the back of my right shoulder near the teres minor for around 7 years now. I have muscle weakness and back of shoulder clicks alot, when i massage the back on my shoulder with my left hand, i can hear a cruchy sound in the muscle and i cant reach behind my back. It's giving me really bad anxiety and its affecting my job and sleep.
Over the years i kept going to the doctors and they said its probably just muscle knots. Got sent to a specialist and he said there was nothing wrong. I also have a pinched nerve in my t6/7 thoracic spine and the spine specialist said that it wouldnt cause that pain. I starting going to a different doctor, she sent me to get an mri and the mri showed nothing wrong. Ice and heat help with the pain.
I also got a ultrasound and it said theres a small amount fluid fluid the bursa overlaying the supraspinatus. There is also seen in the long head of bicepstendon sheath. The appearance is possibly due to tenosynovitis. Thats not where i feel the pain. The orthopedist that i seen referred me to do physiotherapy and to get a cortisone shot.
The pain is affecting my life and mental health, i cant even use my arm properly anymore. Thanks for taking the time to read this and hopefully someone can help me to figure out what this pain is.
