    Shoulder pain doing dips

    I've been doing them for quite some time, slowly adding weight. Yesterday, I had 50lbs on the dip belt (a weight I had done before just fine), I got set up, and upon lowering myself, I felt a pain in my left shoulder, and there was no way I could do even 1 dip. I took all the weight off, and just tried body weight, same result. It's not exactly a sharp pain, but it's fairly pronounced while mid-dip. Just standing around, I barely felt anything wrong. I was even able to do incline close grip bench press and DB flat bench press without so much as a minor amount of pain.

    The pain itself seemed to radiate from the space in between the anterior and lateral deltoid. When I woke up this morning, I didn't notice any additional pain or soreness, and my ROM is the same as it always was. I tried 1 body weight dip and the same location felt like someone was pushing on a bruise, but I was able to do the dip.

    I took the usual precautions, ibuprofen and ice. I have a doctor's appointment on Friday, but in the meantime, does anyone have any ideas what this might be, and what else should/could I be doing to prevent further injury?

    I've had shoulder pain doing weighted dips, but mine was definitely in the posterior deltoid. I aggravated it doing bench I believe, and lifted with it hurt for several months. The military sent me away where I couldn't lift for several months, and it was gone when I came back. I remember it also hurt slightly with heavy bench, but really hurt returning cable fly back to the machine. I could do decline bench with no pain at all, however. If it isn't sharp pain, I'd let it heal up and take things easy.

    Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?

    If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?
