okay so last year i had this stupid pain in my left shoulder after a heavy chest session next day it became worse during shoulders
so i went to the doctor he said the usual bull **** dont lift heavy and take rest bla bla bla so all i did was taking 2 weeks of rest and the pain was gone back in that timee i got my supps stack which included omegas whey and multis
last week in an intense pec session i had that stupid pain but now in my right shoulder so i talked to gym cap he said its due that u stopped taking multi vits ( yes i cannot afford them these days creatine has a higher priority now )
so i said why not taKE a week of rest any ways i have exams but guess what the pain never gone and i have it daily now for half of the day
so i talked to an old friend and he told me smth i never thought of : u may have a slight rotater cuff injury and u always get these injury since they are week and u dont train them
so right now i am confused what is this shoulder pain
lack of multi vitamin
rotater cuff injury or wtf

Hopefully, it's not a rotator cuff injury, but it sounds like it could be a possibility.
Where is the pain coming from exactly? Is it a sharp pain? Do you stretch your rotator cuffs or train your rear-deltoids (be honest)?
Take the next week off or go very light. Do rear-deltoid movements such as rear-delt flies, and facepulls.
For your rotator cuffs, many people will tell you to try and isolate that area. However, this may be counterproductive because of the unnatural stress to the tendons. If you're experiencing any pain within the rotator cuff region, this may actually inflame that region.
Instead, you should use this type of movement.
As you can see with the first link, you're holding the bar with your right hand next your opposite hip. You then fully extend it, as you can see with your second image. Do this exercise with the LOWEST, and I repeat, the LOWEST weight possible on the stack.
Do this movement with both hands for 2-3 sets. Do not lift heavy for the next week or so. Do this movement on a day where you hit shoulders, chest, or back. If you feel the area fatigued, take the day off and do it the next day.
In order to get back to the grove of things, your rotators will feel better after a week or so. Slightly ramp up the weight and keep doing this movement, and sooner/later, you'll be pushing some heavy ass weight and better in no time!Always Pick 3 Crew

Check the 3rd post. Also, doing some of these probably wouldn't hurt (use to do these with a db or the cable machine and it helped my rotator cuffs for a while)
