Resolved Question:

I've attached 4 pictures of my back shoulders and neck.

I have an MRI of my spine, c3 and c4, later this week to see if its a pinched nerve.

Can you look at the pictures and tell me if thats likely? I lost a lot of mass from the back left side of my neck/skull, that appears to effected the left side of my face to feel like its's shrinking.

If you look the left rear deltoid muscle is just tiny compared to the right side. When arms down the armpit is nearly midway up compared to the right side.

I just want a second opinion that I should get an MRI of the c3/c4 and or something else.

Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I have read details of your question.I have gone through the pictures you have sent.There is mild wasting of muscles on left side, if there are no significant other symptoms then I will advice you to also have nerve conduction velocity study and EMG study to rule out muscle and nerve diseases.
Hope this will help you,
Once you have the reports you can share them with me.
