Post pain in the shoulder/up the neck

I have severe pain all around my shoulder and up my neck on my left side.I had this about 2years ago and was just pushed from dr to dr.They say its bursitis,but I do not know much about it except what I read and it sounds like what I have.Can anyone give me some exercises to do or tell me what helps you with the constant pain?I have been taking lots of ibruprofen and asprin but it doesn't feel like its helping.The pain almost burns,it hurts so much.I do put moist heat on it and it feels good ,only for awhile then the ********es right back.Please help me?

Hello, I've had pain in neck to shoulder then arm. all from whiplash accident. I had several tests and last one from neoro.DR. emg test showed pinched nerve. Have you ever had emg test? Have you had any tests to diagnose you have bursits? It has been 3months since my auto accident and I cant believe it is all still there, me and the pain that is.

Thanks anniepink1, I go to the drs.on Monday to see what the problem is.My arm feels worse everyday.I had bursitis before and had a cortisone shot,so I am hoping he will give me another shot.It has been a few years now.As far as whiplash I don't have that,but it does feel like a pinched nerve.I will write back after a see my dr..Hope you feel better I know how it hurts.
