    Weird shoulder "injury"

    Shop Now
    Yesterday I did my workout. Today (24 hrs later) I suddenly get a short pretty strong pain just under my shoulder lasting about 3-4 seconds and it's completely over again. I get this about every 5 minutes. It's like there's a nerve in a weird position because everything I get the pain, my entire arm feels weird. There is not a certain movement that hurts, nor does applying pressure or tightening muscles make pain worse/less. It just happens randomly. I expect this is caused by either shoulder press or dips. I hope dips because they don't mean much to me. Would it be ok to continue working out according to my schedule (without dips) or should I wait until the pain completely disappeared?

    If you don't have a lot of internal shoulder rotation dips can pretty much wreck your shoulders. When you say under you shoulder, where is that exactly?

    It's hard to explain. It's right at the "border" where that big shoulder muscle ends. Not where the bicep begins, not where the tricep begins, but at the "side" of my arm. I have no idea about the body's anatomy but at this pucture I'd say it hurts at the place of the "humerus"

    is it on the inner side of your elbow joint? I am thinking bicep brachialis, a small muscle that is very easy to overtrain, as it normally assisting.

    Whatever it is, if the pain is sharp, do not work it.

    It's not really sharp. It's more like pressire. Like growth pain

    Sounds like you damaged one of the rotator cuff tendons, maybe subscapularis or teres minor. Your verbal description is not very helpful in isolating it.

    Give it a week rest. If it still bothers you, consider seeing a PT
