Shoulder pain: There are many causes of shoulder pain that do not show up on MRI. If the steroid is injected into the shoulder and an MRI is done immediately after, the study may show some fluid (the steroid that was injected) in the shoulder. Steroid however, will not reduce the sensitivity of an MRI study in finding shoulder problems. It sounds like you may benefit from a good shoulder examination.
