So at the gym today, was pumped up and mad at some personal bullshit that happened earlier....
so i stretch, and start doing my dumbell shoulder press's warmup set, warmup set, working set.....than a heavier working set,
im at the last rep and boom my left shoulder gives out and my arm falls backwards and on the way down i hear ripping/grinding noises inside my shoulder pretty sure my arm went out of its socket than went back in on the way down....
i have no clue what this means, im worried i ripped something/tore something. I would go to the doctor to check it, but guess what I have no health insurance at all.
2nd week into my cycle what a fucking nightmare, im praying to God this was just a fluke and my shoulder will be fine in a couple of days.
idk what happened it was so fast, but from the start i felt weaker today, and was still trying to go harder, im so mad at myself, no swelling as of yet this literally was half a hour ago, but the pain is growing, fuck. I dont wanna stop working out, i dont. not so early in my cycle.
Ice, try to immobilize it for a bit if you can, anti-inflammatories and and see a doc if you can any way. Know you have no medical insurance, but if it swells and turns black and blue you just may have too.
Shucks man, I think you should start throwing some ice on it if you haven't been already. 15 minutes on 20-30 off and repeat bro. Strongly suggest you bite the bullet and get it checked out too...
Even if you did not tear anything if it did in fact dislocate (which it sounds like it did) then you are in fact more susceptible to more dislocations in the future. You could go to a musculoskeletal specialist like a chiropractor and they can perform orthopedic testing and/or take x-rays (perhaps and MRI) to determine the status of your shoulder. The worst thing you could do would be to ignore it. You dont want to do something you may regret and make it 10x worse on yourself.
Hey, bright side, you can still pound the hell out of your legs on your cycle. And IF its determined that you do not have any structural damage to your shoulder you can use the opportunity of being on to increase your shoulder girdle stabalizers as to protect against future dislocations ie- your rotator cuff muscles.
just contacted family, theyre willing to pay for MRI...in the next few days, they wanna come with me in the doctors room (im the baby of the family).....you think MRI can detect nice CC's of testosterone deposits in my glutes and quads?
I've got a bad shoulder that dislocates about once a year. Here lately though, it's been about once every other year which is nice, but I am due. Ice it and keep it immobilized. I had an MRI done a while back and the doctor wanted to operate and pin my shoulder with no guarantees....no thanks. Doc said it will continue to happen and gradually get worse, but haven't had any problems lately. I currently have no pain, but I make sure not to compromise my shoulder by stressing it in akward positions. Good Luck!
