Again thanks for your time in replying, I will post what the doctor says tomorrow.
Unfortunately, the shoulder is a very complex joint. I had a labrum tear go undiagnosed for 3 months of dr visits (crap insurance) before I finally got an MRI that showed the tear.
My experience was that they practice conservative and rule out tendinitis first through medication. Then they can get the go ahead to scope it. Unless you are a college or pro athlete, you kind of are forced into a waiting game.
