Rotator cuff

05/14/2008

Question:

I was doing some lifting and felt a sarp pain in my shoulder.I went to the DR said i needed MRI that was 4 days ago. alot of the pain is now gone but not all gone still hurts. does this mean i dont need the MRI now?

Answer:

I am glad to hear your shoulder pain is improving. I would follow up with your physician by telephone and ask him/her what their suggestion is regarding the MRI since your pain has significantly diminished. They may opt to wait on the MRI or some still may want MRI because you still may have had substantial injury even though your symptoms are resolving.

Good luck!
