Re: left trapezoid pain and slight drooping of right shoulder
honestly? obtaining an MRI on your c spine area AND your rotator area of that shoulder would probably find the area where the actual injury or problem lies. this really sounds like possible nerve loss to that muscle area or tendon rupture or tear. that whole area between your c spine and that shoulder really should be looked into,just based upon your symptoms. it really sounds like that issue is IN those areas to some degree. withering or atrophy of muscle is usually a nerve or tendon issue(or even something like an actual muscle tear). this would just be a really good way to get the ball rolling towards finding the culprit here in the quickest easiest way for you.
you have one tendon called the supraspinatus that simply runs across the very top of the shoulder area from the top of the humorus to the base of the neck. i had this particular tendon tear on me completely last year and did/do have some atrophy in my trap on that side. but i would make certain that that rotator cuff area gets MRIed for sure. just see your doc and ask for that referral. are you having any problems with that arm itself with range of motion? marcia
