OK my shoulder is seriously f'ed up. I was doing declines and it started to hurt a little, no biggie right. Then I get to incline db presses and I couldnt even do them the pain was so bad. So I called it a day and waited ya know. Now, I have been lifting during the pain for the last 1 1/2 with the severe pain, and stopping when it gets unbearable. Now what sux is that when I am NOT LIFTING, i.e. just sitting here or lying down, my shoulder throbs. When I elevate my arm say straight above my head in a "waiving hi" motion, it kills in the back where my divot (sp) (where the ball goes into my socket) is, as well as in the back where my v is at the back of my armpit (when my arm is down, where my arm meets my lat). I have been taking motrin for the pain, but it is still here.
I know I should probably go to the doc, but I know what he is going to say, but I am in the middle of a cycle. My question is does this sound like anything anyones has ever had themselves, or a buddy of yours? And what can I do or take to help in the recovery and rehab of my arm?

Thanks guys, look slike I am going to the doc then. I was gonna try just to light work but it seems that my shoulder plays a part in almost all of my lifts, except legs naturally, and not even all of those. And I was just gonna do light weight until it recovered, but that isnt working either. So I guess its off to the doc on Monday. Oh, are they gonna do bloodwork for being seen on a shoulder injury? Reason I ask is because I am a veteran and will be going to the Veteran's Hospital. I dont want to have bloodwork drawn and lose my disability for being on an illegal substance ya know. Thanks

I tore 50% of my left posterior delt, and the only thing that helped was taking 12 weeks off. If you take a look at my pics of certain poses you can still notice the tear.

I have some problems. I have dislocated both and tore the ligament between my shoulder and collar bone from wrestling. When I do shoulders, my left arm goes numb, sometimes it really hurts. I end up resting my arm on the DB rack and completely taking all pressure off it to get blood flowing. I cant sleep on my left side, and sometimes it starts to slide out. I end up yelling in pain when i wakeup, ****s my roomate up so badl lol I started taking glucosamine and chroditin and MSM or whatever it all is. Been a few months, it hurts occasionally. I can lift fine with it, but have notices i cant hold my arms above my head for a very long time lol
