help with understanding MRI
 
Hi all. I had an MRI Arthrogram today and will not be getting the results from my doctor for some time.

I started having problems with my shoulder from throwing a softball. It would be painful and my hand would start tingling. I went to the doctor and he put me on physical therapy. After 4 weeks of this, the pain was worse and my hand would tingle on a much more regular basis. Overhead activities make the symptoms worse but it constantly aches regardless of what I am doing. It gets worse as the day goes on.

He ordered a EMG/NCV but it came back normal so he order the MRI Arthrogram.

UPDATE: They did not allow me to attach a link with the pictures. That being said, I got a call from the doctor and they told me I have a posterior labral tear. Any information on that?

Look up SLAP tear, that should help you get some information till you see the doctor.
