I've scoured the internet looking for some kind of article that mentions this pain I'm having, but to no avail. Hopefully someone here will have experienced the same pain and can enlighten me as to what happened.
Background: I was on my first of two rest days between workout sessions (my one two day rest period per week). My last workout had gone very well, and no pain was experienced. However, when I was getting into the shower I went to lift off my t-shirt and a sharp pain struck my shoulder. I quickly massaged it and tried to see if it continued to hurt, but it didn't hurt too bad. I figured I must have just moved the wrong way and took my shower and went to bed.
The next day I find the pain is persisting. It ONLY affects me when I do a motion with my arm (left) exactly like the one you do when taking off a long sleeve shirt or a coat, where you put your arms back a little to shrug the clothes off. There is literally no other movement that hurts but this one. It's only when my shoulder gets moved back that I have this pain.
To describe the pain, it occurs on the part of my shoulder furthest from my body, in the exact middle of my shoulder. When I do the movement that causes pain, the pain is long and a surprising amount. Then it is usually sore for a little while, and after that the pain subsides like my shoulder is in perfect condition.
The weirdest thing is, I went to do a workout to test what my shoulder could do, and I was able to do a full workout (squats, over-head press, cleans, and pull-ups) with absolutely no shoulder pain whatsoever.
What should I do? I can clearly workout fine, but the pain is annoying and I'm afraid that although it doesn't bothering me during training it might cause another problem to arise.
Anyone deal with a similar issue before?
