I had problems like what you describe and I found that my right shoulder was going through atrophy because of an undetected brain tumor on the base of my brain stem going into my spinal cord. I was losing muscle control in my shoulder. Now I have fibromyalgia in both shoulders and my neck. As it was suggested get an MRI. It was the only way they found the tumor.

What have you tried so far in terms of helping yourself?
Diet changes, exercise, stress reduction, etc.? Depending on others, doctors, tests, to help you is clearly not getting you anywhere, as is the case for many of us. Spending your time trying to answer the why questions isn't going to help you feel better either, since most of them don't have answers at this point and maybe you will never know. But you can do things to help yourself. Tell us what you have been doing for yourself and we will give you ideas and cheer you along.

HopefullyYours, no need to stop posting here, and if we have been of any help to you at all I suggest you stick around. We all try to help each other. My asking you what you are doing was in hopes of getting some detail about it, such as how far you've tried to walk, or what you have tried in diet changes and so on, so that I could make suggestions to you that could be more helpful to you. I don't think you have posted about these things you have tried, or about their results, and I was merely saying that if you did we would be able to offer more detailed assistance to you, which in turn might help you more. It's hard to help another person or make further suggestions if you don't know what they are already doing. Hope this clarifies what I was saying.
