Hey guys I was wondering if anyone might have had experience with an issue I've been dealing with for sometime. I've only been lifting for around 6 months and don't have a ton of experience so my knowledge is limited as to what are typical issues associated with weightlifting.
Anyways, I've been experiencing a discomforting feeling under my right armpit, along my ribcage. Whenever I let my arms hang down like a normal person, it feels like my right arm is rubbing against a lumpy material under my arm.. It's been driving me crazy! At first I thought it had something to do with my ribs, and I went to the doc and had x-rays and whatnot, but all came back negative.
I'm 5'6 and weight 180lbs. right now, which is the heaviest I've ever weighted in my life, and I'm beginning to wonder if it may just be a stubborn fat pocket. It's just strange because it doesn't bother me on my left side, only the right. One other things I've noticed is that when I lift my arms straight in the air above my head and feel along my side, it almost feels as if my ribs are sticking out moreso on one side than the other...
It's not causing me any kind of intense pain by any means but it is very annoying and I'd like to come to a conclusion about what measures I can take to remedy it. I stopped lifting for a period of time when I was going to the doc because I didn't want to hurt anything that may have already been agitated... If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate your input..
