Orthopaedic Specialist Forum
I agree that your symptoms suggest that the pathology should be on the right side. I presume that you are seeing a good neurosurgeon and at the end of the day the diagnosis is aided by the MRI but a great deal also depends on the clinical examination. One should also consider that other conditions can cause pain in the shoulder, and arm with a similar presentation: one is Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and the other is Calcific Tendinitis of the shoulder. Do have a look at our website : www.shoulderinstitute.co.za and then at those two conditions.
MRI on its own is not decisive
