I few months ago I woke up with a slight annoying pain in my left upper back. It didnt' bother me much and I didnt pay much attention to it. As the time went on I realized that it wasnt going away and when I turn to the left or right it kinda feels tight.
When I didnt deadlift for a week it got a little better but when I did deads again it started being really uncomfortable again so I think its from deadlifting - no deadlifting for a while.(that same day I did pullups and dips weighted so I dont think it could be from my other exercises)
My question is this my form or maybe an imbalance? since its only on one side. I ve been doing deadlifts for a about a year and have been told that my form is generally good. Also I cant get to the pain by pressing on it or when others press on it I dont feel anything. Its strictly from turning left or right or when I slouch and lean forward. I dont get any pain during deadlifting either. But when I put the bar down and turn slightly I definitly feel a lot of stiffness. Any help is appreciated.
