    What's my shoulder injury?

    About 7 weeks ago, i was lifting for the first time in a long time. No injury that day or the next day. 2 days later, out of nowhere when I woke up, I couldn't pick up a tooth brush past a few inches, and had lots of pain and swelling. The only other thing I can think of that may have caused this is that I slept on that same side the night before I woke up with the injury.

    4 weeks after just hoping the injury would go away, I had an orthopedic doctor test for rotator cuff injuries, he couldn't find anything using the diagnostic tests. Then I had x rays and ultrasounds, nothing; shoulder bones looked normal, muscles normal, all ligaments and tendons looked healthy. So he just told me I have a strained tendon, and it'll eventually go away with rest. But I'm starting to get worried.

    7 weeks later, there's no more pain or swelling. No more loss of strength. But i still have some range of motion issues. Specifically, if my arm is bent like in this video, I can't do this rotation externally past about 45 degrees. At the 45 degree point, my shoulder kind of juts up about 2 inches higher than normal.

    So, I get can my arm out to about 135 degrees (90 degrees + 45 degree external rotation).

    Here's the video: Since I can't post links or videos yet, please remove the spaces to watch it.

    htt ps: //w ww.youtube.c om/watch?v=PVdgjHqAes8

    If I hold my arm straight out in front of me, I can't completely turn my palm up facing the sky. I can only get about half that rotation in my forearm/ palm. There's no issue rotating my palm to face the floor. There's no issue rotating my palm in either direction if I hold my arm out to the side.

    So... I think I'm going to go get a second opinion from a doctor that specializes in sports injuries.. but any ideas on what's going on?

    Any idea if this is a tendon, if so which tendon? Or is it bursitis, or impingement, or what?

    Go to a different doctor this time.

    Not sure but maybe this will help you https://orthoinfo.aaos.org/globalass...b_shoulder.pdf

    I have to program in band pull aparts, internal rotation, external rotation and arm abducted 90 degrees rotation into my workout weekly and couple quick mobility exercises every workout. If I don’t I’m fuked and tendinitis comes back in my left shoulder.

    get an MRI, xrays are for bones and an ultrasound is a poor attempt to check the tendons. You could have a rupture or a strain, those take a minimum of 6 - 8 weeks to heal

    What tendon controls the external rotation when your arm is bent like in the youtube video?
