Right shoulder pain, sometimes in the right chest, MRI, x-ray normal, no physical work. What could this be?

I m 44 and I have been having a right shoulder pain for about 2 months now. The pain is right on my shoulder towards my back down to my arm and I felt the pain sometimes to my right chest. I have did x-ray and MRI and the specialist doctor I visited found nothing in the MRI and X-Ray but he recommended Theraphy which I don t believed that can solve the problem. I never heard any accident on my arm, by the way my job does not ivolve lifting, I sit down all day infront of computers and servers. All I can think of is I had a broken arm by my elbow well over 3o yrs now on same right hand....Pls any help or suggestions will greatly appreciated. I want to go see my doctor again so that I can know what and what to mention on my next doctor visit. Also am hoping this has nothing to do with any of my internal organs.

I think there are two possiblties in you .
1. It can be cervical spondylitis which is common in computer operators and whilte collar jobs. When we sit for long time in same position muscles get fatigue.I think you have not done MRI of the neck. I would also suggest you to start neck
muscle strengthening exercises.
2. Other common cause of such pain can be trapezitis. If there is no sign of nerve compression at MRi then a steroid injection can help you.
