Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello Einar! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
The first thing is to diagnose the exact problem
For this you will need to have an X-ray and an MRI after an examination preferably by a Rheumatologist or orthopedic surgeon
If it turn out to be a supraspinatus tear then treatment will depend upon the extent of damage
Minor tears are managed conservatively with rest,non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and physical therapy
In more severe cases a surgical repair may be necessary

If the ultrasound comes back normal then I would suggest an MRI
