    shoulder issue, bump on top of shoulder

    I have been having a slight pain with my shoulder lately, I have stopped all pressing and overhead movements for around 2 weeks. The pain is most noticable when I point my thumb at my body and raise my arm laterally. I have been icing and taking advill everynight but it just isnt getting any better. I have also noticed that there is a small bump at the edge of my shoulder this is what worries me most. The pain isnt very severe but it is nagging and doesnt go away. I have also been doing rc exercises for around 4 weeks. I just really want to heal this up, only doing legs everyweek is getting old.

    thanks

    Hey, I am something like that a little while back. It was a fatty deposit that just got between my skin and everytime I did overhead presses it stuck out more and more and it was getting bigger so I had it cut out. Just a big ass chunk of white fat. Mine only hurt sometimes so I don't know if it is the same thing you have. Go see a doctor and get it checked

    That's inflammation my friend. If it's where I think it is on the top of your shoulder...it is your ac joint. Your ac joint better known as your acromioclavicular by doctors, is the point on your shoulder around where your trap comes down and meets your shoulder. I know well about the ac-joint because I severely injured it in April of 2007, and recently had surgery to fix it in March of 2008. Don't be alarmed though, my injury was unique and a sports related injury.

    What I recommend you do. ICE, keep up with yous NSAID's (ibuprofen or w/e you use), and rotator cuff work. It might take a little while to heal (anywhere from 2 weeks to maybe 2 months). I know 2 months is not the news you want to hear BUT trust me on this one, 2 months care is definitely better than pushing through this injury with pain. You can easily mess up your shoulder if you push through this injury (see the first link I posted below. The author of the article pushed through his injury). Also, when you FINALLY do get back at the weights, use a joint supplement to help your shoulder .

    Here are a couple of articles related to shoulder/ac joint issues that might be useful to you. They were very informative and useful to me, and a little knowledge will help you here;

    GL in the healing process bro. I'm pulling for you to heal. I know the frustration you feel...trust me.

    well im going to bite the bullet and see a doc today, I have full range of motion with no real pain, it only hurts if I lift my arm laterally with my thumb facing my body. Its a ac seperation of some sort im sure, hopefully not too bad. I have the usual bump on the top of my shoulder.

    Look up AC joint separation. Type 1 & 2 usually have no displacement, 3 and up do.
