Hello,

Does it occur only on laying down?

Is there any swelling, tenderness?

Did she have any test?
Hi--at this point she needs an MRI of the shoulder to see if there is a rotator cuff tear or a labral tear in the cartilage of the joint. She also needs an MRI of the neck to look for a disk problem.
