Possible Shoulder issue? Arthritis? Odd Behaviour.

I have a 12 year old thoroughbred. Quite some time ago she became slightly off in her front end. I had her vetted, x-rays, etc. He said it wasn't anything. I left it alone. Occasionally it would come back but I never thought much of because it was so slight. For the past year it has been contant but she only looked slightly off, never seemed painful. (I only do light riding and hacking) I started jumping her again (tiny little exes, maybe two or three times once a week) She got more sore. I stopped riding her, gave her some time. Suddenly when someone gets on her she would threaten to rear which is VERY unlike her. She will throw her front feet outward and slam them down. She also fell very slowly to her knees when picking her feet and gradually lifted herself back up but without using her fron legs a all. She lifted herself from her back end in slow motion. Like wth?? I'm so confused since the vet gave the all clear. She now spins at you and threatens to kick you if she thinks you are going to ride her or if you brush her front end. This nasty behaviour is only recent. Once I buted her for a hack and she was wonderful, no soreness. I plan to get a second oppinion obviously but these bizzare acts have me stumped. Anyone have thoughts?

I would definitely get a second opinion. Its very obvious she's feeling pain somewhere.
