That is pretty standard procedure both for health reasons and insurance companies trying to avoid paying out more money. If you got to a sports medicine doctor with an orthopedic issue you will get an x-ray, some anti-inflammatory drugs and then be given at least a month of physical therapy. You might get more than one round of PT. At some point you have to politely point out that you aren't getting better and keep asking for an MRI until you get one.
It can take more than a month to schedule a surgery. Shoulder surgeries take a long time to recover from. Do not count on being able to go back to the things you like for the better part of a year. Healing and rehab are slow.
You will get there. Just find a way to control your fitness as much as you can without using your shoulder, accept it as a temporary set back, be chill, be patient, be persistent and enjoy the other parts of your life.
