    Saturday whilst doing BB shoulder shrugs I developed a twinge in my left lat as I was loading up the bar but it went away like most other little things like that do. During my last set the feeling came back and by the time I got home I couldn't take a deep breath without nerve pain shooting down my back.

    Thankfully my g/f is a massage therapist, but it has still only helped marginally. At least I was able to get out of bed on my own this morning!!

    Cliffs: Pinched nerves kick ass!!

    i don't know WTF it was but last week after hitting the gym I was driving, and I changed lanes while going around a curve, and when I looked over my shoulder my neck got stuck with my head turned away for a second... it was like i lost feeling of the area and couldn't control it to pull my head facing forward again... very scary shit.

    I have a friend who always fucks up his neck doing heavy incline db bench :rofl: He juices every now and then and does more weight than he should, then he has to sit out of the gym for a week recovering while still cycling :rofl:

    You sure it's a nerve and not a rib head?
