Lately when I've been doing shrugs it hurts like hell right in my traps along where it meets the spine. It feels like someone is stabbing a hot knife in my back when i lift anything up using my traps. Any suggestions or maybe i'm just using poor form?

Be careful! If you hurt yourself you could be agitating it. I had a small pain in my traps not long ago. I was doing a lot of sets of dumbel shrugs and switched up to shrugs with a barbel for a couple of weeks. It hit my traps a little different and eventually worked the pain out.

I have the same pain after a trap workout. I suggest getting a massage.

It´s easy to tear a muscle hold while doing traps, they are very small.
Be carefull and make sure you go down slow on shrugs.
