Rotator Cuff problems???????
I have developed problems in my shoulder in the last month that appears to be rotator cuff related. My husband had this problem as well as a couple of other people that I know and everyone says this is what I have.
I've joined a fitness center but am afraid to do many of the exercises because I'm afraid that I'll injure my arm more even though I read that exercise is important.
Yes, I know that I need to go to the doctor and do plan to but I have a question. I am deathly afraid of MRI's. Had one before and said I would never do it again regardless of whether or not I'm put to sleep. Stupid I know but I have a fear of being put into a tube and even though I know that I can be put to sleep but just KNOWING that this would happen really frightens me. Question is.......does a doctor ALWAYS do an MRI to diagnosis you or can they do so by x-rays?
