I’m a little bit worried atm. I went into the gym and started doing some incline db presses…after doing 3 warm up sets with 40 lbs I grabbed some 50s and got ready to do another set. As soon as I started the exercise I felt a shooting pain in my left arm/shoulder, in that small area that seems to connect your chest to your arm, just above my armpit.
It’s now hurting pretty badly, and I’ve taken some aspirin and iced it and I’ll continue doing that throughout the day. I can lift my arm sideways but I can’t raise it in front of me and I still have some nasty pain in that area. I know I must’ve strained whatever ligament/tendon that is, but I’m worried something may have torn. How can I tell?
Additionally, if any of you have had this injury before, any recommendations on what I can do to aid my recovery?
