Shoulder Pain

 
 
Reply Thu 20 Oct, 2016 11:50 am
I was at the gym last night doing an inclined bench press with dumbells. On one of the reps, I had my arms almost fully extended above when my shoulder popped out of the socket and then went right back in (It happens to me every now and then, this was not abnormal). However, I immediately felt a sharp pain (which was not normal) that lasted for about a minute, and now about 12 hours later I can feel a dull pain in my shoulder when it is not moving, and a sharp pain when I move it the wrong way. I think it's either a torn rotator cuff or an impingement, but I would like some other opinions so I don't get hasty and visit the ER for nothing. Thanks.

@collegekid17,
If your shoulder is routinely coming out of the socket that is cause for a trip to the doctor. I'm surprised your not expressing more pain though because these things are extraordinarily painful. Shoulder injuries can last a lifetime. I don't know if you are overstating this shoulder popping out of the socket or not. If it comes out of the socket, that is not normal and would be excruciating. X-ray may or may not be useful. I think an mri is probably they only way to judge soft tissue injury. Have you spoken to fellow lifters. Do there arms pop out of the socket? I don't think so. Forgive my frustration, I'm in a lot of pain.

@collegekid17,
If you feel pain for your shoulder, lower your arm until the pain subsides. The aim is to have the ability to tug your right arm throughout your chest without feeling any pain. Maintain for 30-60 seconds then relax and repeat together with your left arm. Repeat three-five instances.

@collegekid17,
Your name says collegekid - are you attending a university? It you don't want to initially spend money going to the ER - then go to the nurse's office/medical office at your university - most university's have this as a service to those attending college - that way they could direct you if you should seek further medical attention.

Oops just noticed this is from October - I would hope you already took care of this.

@collegekid17,
In the case of an injury causing intense pain, seek medical care as soon as possible. If the pain is less severe, it may be safe to rest a few days to see if time will resolve the problem. If symptoms persist, see a doctor. Your doctor provide you with treatment options.
