Yes I actually started the GH about 3 weeks before the injury. So I think in that sense, I psychologically pushed myself harder because I believed I could get away with it. I also was going wide on my heavy bench days which isn't smart without a suit. That and doing bench twice a week, and cleans, and deads, just set me up for disaster.
My hands started going numb pretty shortly after starting.
Hand pain started pretty shortly after as well. I am on my 3rd day of no GH just to see if the joints would go down, and everything has subsided besides my shoulder. My appt with the ortho doc I see is next week just to double tap and make sure its not something worse than what I perceive it to be.
And that is exactly how i feel. I feel it constantly. standing up, turning, etc. I am starting to question if its an impingement as opposed to a strain/sprain in the AC joint though, due to the pain radiating to the collar bone, scapula, as well as down the rotator cuff. I have been able to maintain mobility as I stretch/foam roll at least 2-3 times a day.
I remember tearing BOTH rotator cuffs about 5 years ago, and that put me out for a while. Its been about a month since this issue started so I am really itching to get it figured out and start getting back to strength. In the mean time I am gonna maintain the 4iu 5/2 and hope for the best.
Thanks for the input everyone.
