OK so this is my first thread here on the BB and it goes a little something like this. When I'm listening to ABBA in the mornings I.... oh, sorry, different forum, I mean, when I am doing normal daily activities (not lifting) I get a sharp pain in my shoulder if I move it a certain way. I can manipulate it and feel a popping sensation at a certain point. It does not, however, interfere with any shoulder exercise as I can do presses, raises or flies with no discomfort at all. I assume it is my rotator cuff. I am aware that these injuries can take months to years to heal properly. I do not want to stop lifting because I am already trying to make up for lost time in the gym.

So here is my question .

If I can lift (even heavy) with a motion that is not painful, am I still doing damage to my cuff or can it heal properly if not aggravated more.

Thanks for your input.

Only a qualified professional can asses the problem you are having and you probably should make an appointment to see someone. May be nothing and then again...

You are right. I'm more or less looking for similar experiences and their outcomes. Trust, I'm not looking for a diagnosis. I will however have it looked at if it gets any worse.

i had a similar experience. At first my doc thought it was rotator cuff, then after MRI he confirmed that it was Osteolysis. Have it checked out.

i had what i thought was a rc problem. after 4 years went to the doctor, and had the battery of tests done. turns out it was not the rc. was a buildup of arthritis and a torn bicep tendon.

i guess the moral is: seek professional help, and what's the point in self diagnosis?

If you're doing flies without pain I doubt it's the rotator cuff. Go see your Doc.

My shoulders do the same thing.My left is the worst.They were sore so I thought I would back off a week from lifting and give my body a break.My left actually got worse the longer I did not exercise it.I started doing some light shoulder exercises and the discomfort has went away mostly.At certain points I still get a pop and some discomfort but nothing like it was.I'm going to keep up the rotator exercises 3 times a week and make sure I'm working my shoulders at all angles.
