About two weeks ago i was going running drills in my backyard and i couldnt break down fast enough after a sprint. Causing me to accidentally run on a big flat rock and since i was wearing grass cleats i was slid backward and was going to fall on the back of my head, so i grabbed my bbq since it was right there and basically stopped all the momentum from me falling with one arm and i felt some weird sharp pain in my chest armpit area. Abouty 5 minutes later the sharp pain was completly gone. That was on a Wednesday.
Then the next friday i was going 5X5 on flat bench doing the Bill Starr Program. I would get this weird sharp pain in my chest armpit area when bringing the bar down to my chest about 3-4 inches away and bringing it up at around that point. I still didnt think too much of it and continued to workout regularly.
The next Monday it was still there and i still stupidly continued to workout regularly. Now today on Fridays workout i felt it on every set and soon on my 4th set on my 3rd rep i felt like a ripping felling. I immediately stopped my workout and left the gym.
Ok, now the pain is still there after the workout and everything but i have regular motion with my arm and everything. There is pain but its not bad, more of just an annoying pain if you know what i mean. After my workouts before this though it would sort of hurt after but then go away. Only bothering me from benching.
Also when i touch it, it sort of hurts and its a little swollen.
So did i tear it and if i did how long will this take to heal?
