MRIs don't tell all: This needs more study it sounds like a radiating pain it might be in a net between your shoulder and neck or further down it could also be coming from an injury or trigger point in the muscle called the supraspinatus or even fibromyalgia doctor needs to look in more detail and possibly order an emg/ncv or other x rays.
