My doctor has never felt it was bad enough to do an MRI. I would like to have the shoulder specialist order it himself performed at a location that he trusts so that the images and results are consistent.
I will not do anything further until I can get an MRI.
I am kinda trying to not go back to my doc, although he has been great throughout the years (i've seen him for over 20 years) he is letting me down a bit with his lack of concern for my shoulder. I have tried explaining to him that I am not your average desk jockey/couch potatoe and that I lead a fairly active lifestyle and need my shoulder to be repaired (whether that means PT or surgery or whatever) and healed up fully.
