Chronic Bilateral Shoulder Pain

I have been in the US Air Force for 5 years. After about a year and a half in, at the age of 20, I started having horrible shoulder pains in both shoulders accompanied by the grating and clicking of the shoulders. I have had 6 MRIs (2 of them being arthroscopic), countless x-rays, and one surgery (for a small labral tear in the right shoulder). That was over 3 years ago and still no one knows what it the cause of my pain nor how to help it. Medicines don't work, nor do cortisone injections. Is there anything you think I could do to help my pain or maybe figure out what's wrong with me where others couldn't?

Bio Skin compression shorts offer a significant advance over other brands. They supply superior compression to the groin and hamstring without the bulk of the typical compression shorts.
