    I don't have insurance so I can't go to a doctor. Any ideas other than rest and getting fat?

    got a link?

    I had a bad case of tendonitis and after 2 months its finally close to pain free. I didn't really rest much as I should have, because I just couldn't stand not going to lift. What helped out a lot is when I started doing lots of different ROM exercises.

    Does it hurt? If so, which movements cause pain?

    It makes a popping sound if say i make a bench pressing motion. The only time I have pain is when lifting directly to the side, only in one shoulder. The pain is in the front of the deltoid.

    It could also be from sleeping on my sides. Any tips to fix that, or than hurt it so I'll sleep on the other?

    I have this issue as well, i have bad rotator cuffs.

    Try warming up your rotator cuff before doing any chest or shoulder exercises, i've felt this helps EXTREMLEY.

    Take an 8 pound dumbell and start with your arm across your body and move it out the opposite way. (hard to explain, basically the start position is as if you're flexing your bicep with your arm across your body and your finish is the opposite of this.

    Second exercise i do for rotator cuff is to start with the weight in the air as if you were going to knock on a door. Start with your arm in the air, perpendicular to the ground, finish when the weight is parallel to the ground.

    This is strange though. It didn't hurt until last night, and i had not lifted that day, or the day previous. Hopefully i won't sleep on it tonight and it will feel good enough to work tomorrow, I had to skip two days this weekend because I was all butthurt over a girl and or working on my car.
