Thread: Shoulder pain...
10-14-2003, 01:52 PM #1
Seems like everyone is getting injured lately, Johan with his ass hurting, my lifting partner and his bad knee, and now, my terrible terrible left shoulder.
Okay, so I'm not sure exactly wut it is, but I'm thinking it may be the rotating cuff (is that wut it's called). Here's the problem, it doesn't hurt when i'm not lifting, it does hurt when I do military press, and go too heavy. It's in the left shoulder, and it's VERY sharp, and very painful! It will also hurt if I do something like dumbell fly's, lying down on a flat or inclined bench. But those seem to be the only times I REALLY feel it. Other excersies I still feel it a bit.
Wut is this? Is it the cuff? If so, how did I fuck it up? How can I heal it up fast? Anyway to speed up the process? Does this require a trip to the doctor?
Also, it will hurt if I'm lying on the floor, on my back, and I extend my arm straight outwards, on the floor (90 degree to my body), and try to lift it (even if it's just an inch) it'll start to kick in. SOMEONE HELP FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!

Sounds like rotator cuff. I have had it in both shoulders. It took almost a year to heal on my right shoulder (kept lifting on it) and it's taken up to 4 months for my left one to heal (haven't really been lifting) Be careful, you do NOT want shoulder surgery

Ter bro... one word.... DOCTOR!
Take it from a guy who is just bouncing back from left shoulder paralysis! (needed sports med, physio and neurologist!) Don't fuck with shoulders. When in doubt, Doctor.
go to a family doctor, get a referal to a sports medecine doctor and then have them check the shoulder out inside out.
Besides your taxes pay the doctors here, so might as well get your moneys worth

Awww shit! I was hoping an aspirin and a good 8 hours of sleep would magically heal my shoulder. This REALLY sucks. I just started school in Sept. so me and my buddy are working out hard core. I just started a cycle, i'm in my 4th week of Sus @ 750mg a week. I can't stop it now, only 6 weeks left to go.
Should I STOP shoulders completely?!?! I mean, when I was doing military press at just 135lbs it felt fine, no pain. Also, bent over shoulder raises (to the side), and also raises (very light weight), felt okay, so can I continue doing this?!?!
I will make the appointment asap. I'm guessing he'll take a routine x-ray? How bad does it have to get for surgery to be required?!?
Man i'm scared.

Partyboy, I'm so heart broken here bro. When I heard about those pants, man, my eyes started to tear up! I so feel for you bro, I can't believe I've been so selfish latetly, not even taking into consideration, those lovely lovely pants bro. I felt so bad, I wrote you a poem.

Oh pants, pants, I wear you tight,
I can't stand it when we fight.
Oh pants, pants, I feel you so,
I wear you everywhere I go.
I left you in that cold back seat,
While I sat up front near the heat.
I had a strong urge to light a fag,
Because I forgot my marijuana bag.
I tried to throw my butt outside,
But the stupid window was not down.
When I got home, I sat and I cried,
Now little bastard you're buried underground.

I bet you stop doing those and in two weeks your shit will be healed up.. IM totally against behind the neck presses. Thats what makes my shoulders hurt so I dont do them.. also for two weeks stop doing presses and do raises itll help your shoulder heal fasters.. and TAKE THAT GLUTAMINE...

I have the same shoulder problem, but mine has been around for years now.
I'd recommend that you do a Google search on lifting alternatives for a bad shoulder. I don't remember the specifics right now, or I'd just post some. I have to be careful with my shoulder. DB flyes are not a good thing, certain upward pressing can be very painful too.
I had a cortisone shot one time, before I knew much about them. It did make it feel real good, but it takes a toll in the long run - weakened muscle, bone, joint. The shots can destroy the joint.

Alright another question for ya.. are you doing a lot of decline presses or flys?.. cause I know that really blows out a shoulder 2

She said from now on to do shoulder presses and military presses on a very mild incline (bench at 70 or 80 degrees instead of straight 90 degrees back). Seems to have helped a lot.

Because of a blown out trap, I've had to adapt some of my training, one of those adaptations is that I do all my flat and decline bar presses in the smith machine (I know I know, cheating). Not having to stabilize the bar and being able to concentrate on lifting really saves your rotator cuffs a lot of grief.

i have the *exact* same problem. turns out its tendonosis. ive had this for over two years now. trust me when i say let it heal. if you must continue for the duration of your cycle do whatever it takes to work around the injury and find yourself a sling for the rest of the time to keep the shoulder immobilized. alternate heat and ice as much as possible. good luck.

Alright guys, thanks for the feedback, helps alot. I'll try and let it heal as best as possible. I'll do those exercises mentioned above, and drop behind the neck presses all together. It doesn't really hurt on flat bench, so I'll see wut happens there.
I'll keep ya'll posted, on what happens, hope it's not too serious
