    Well, on monday I had a seizure :)wtf:) as I walked out of the washroom to my room and fell on top of my guitars hitting my shoulder, back and biting my tongue down while convulsing..

    anyways, the tongue isnt an issue, I can still eat, the back is healed up pretty much already, but the shoulder still sorta "pops" when I twist it in a specific way

    im just curious as to whether or not I should stay out of the gym for the rest of the week (as planned) and give it time to heal or just find a way to get around the pain...

    any ideas? i was already in the ER and xrays were taken, no hairline fractures or anything...it's just an oddly pulled muscle as far as i know

    sleep deprivation added to a preexisting minor photic sensitivity

    Xrays wont show tissue damage done to the shoulder

    i know this...

    but it was suggested by the ER doc that bone damage may have occured dislocating the bone in the area...

    in reality we dont know what it is, the doc just assumed it was a pull which is what it feels like

    considering there could be tests done to find out if anything is wrong, I would take peoples advice here in that you should do them (MRI), and personally I'd stay out of the gym if there was any pain or awkward feeling/behavior in the shoulder. If you'd rather just wait it out then wait at least a week, and if the popping or any painful sensation persists I'd definitely get the tests done.

    You could still work your midsection and legs (unless it hurts to stabilize a barbell), but I wouldn't go doing any push presses or anything.

    it does hurt to stabilize the barbell during squatting and while pulling so I won't even bother lifting for a week or so

    i needed a deloading week of sorts anyways, so i'll just take the rest of the week off and stay at maintenance levels
