SKIP TO “SYMPTOMS” IF YOU DON’T WISH TO READ BACK STORY
So the injury is a little more in depth then tittle leads on. Summarised backstory: I went to a month long fighting class there were a lot of bumps and bruises, but there was only one memorable hit I took to the right shoulder. A little pain initially didn’t think anything of it.
Noticed week three my incline bench was very weak. I thought I was still just dinged up from fighting so I have been taking it easy. It’s been three more weeks and I’m starting to worry. My right arm is extremely weak I can’t do more then 20 or so push ups or bench more than 45 lb dumbbells. (I went in the class doing around 80-100 push ups nonstop and incline pressing 120s for 6). Tricep on my right arm also very weak struggled to hold 20 pounds over my head. No pain in chest shoulder or tricep just extreme strength loss and quickly fatigue. The only source of pain comes from behind my shoulder blade almost exactly opposite of my nipple. I have very slowly been getting some strength back but I mean like a couple extra push ups a week. Up to 20 from 5. Biceps are oddly not affected.
Right pec won’t contract upper portion right under clavicle. Almost looks deformed next to my left pec.
Right tricep weakness.
Pain in back behind shoulder blade. Feels like a huge knot. Difficult to completely retract scapula or engage lat.
Difficulty pressing or completing a pull up.
Immediately following the class I had elbow pain on the inside of the elbow. (Gone now)
In closing I have seen the doctor took some x-rays to check neck and shoulder. Scheduled a MRI and Physical therapy next month. They think it could possibly be labral related. I have full range of motion in the arm and shoulder.
