Well maybe not torn, but I've certainly strained it at least.
Maybe a month and a half ago I started getting shooting pain in my left shoulder during my workout. It wasn't horrible, just a dull ache. I would stretch it out and it would feel slightly better, I would try to massage the area (kind of the back top of my shoulder) but couldn't seem to find the spot that was hurting. It was as if it was hurting somewhere deep in my shoulder, not just somewhere on the surface that I could rub or massage.
Well, then it went away, and I felt fine.
Aaaand now its back, this time with a vengence. It started feeling sore again on my last chest day, felt even more sore last night when I went in to do back and biceps. And thats what really did it.
Everytime I did any kind of pulling motion on a back exercise (like a row), it would hurt slightly while pulling it back but once I let go and started returning to the start position, THATS when it ****ing started sending shooting pain all through my shoulder. I was like WTF.
My right shoulder is fine... its just my left.
So am I right in thinking it is my rotator cuff? And if so, what should I do? Would a doctor even be able to do anything for it, would an XRAY help, etc?
I really don't want to be told that I need to just quit working out for 2 months
