    I know many people on here experience lots of pain in their shoulders, but this one is just about to kill me. I had another shitty chest workout today because of it. I feel like an abundance of lactic acid is building up and fatigue just hits the roof at any amount of reps. Like holding my arm infront of me for a couple seconds will actually make it tired... is this basically the start of an injury? I just took off a week to see if it goes away, but that was just about pointless. It's a very dull ongoing pain, and only in my left shoulder

    any ideas without spending countless dollars on an MRI

    light reps make it hurt more if anything..... ugh this is hopeless trying to diagnose it over here. If someone has had a similar problem, just let me know

    18 miles away, good deal. Do you have any experience with it?

    I don't know how to stretch my shoulder, but yes I do shoulder rolls occasionally (if that's stretching)

    they have this machine at my gym that you sit on and do all sorts of weird shit and it stretches you...to do the shoulders you sit on it, lean back while keeping your arms on the handles crisscrossed, then switch. :dunno:

    find a pole and grab it with both hands, bend your neck down and arc your back and you should feel some stretch in your shoulders.

    Massage therapy rules to reduce stress, increase blood circulation and relieve muscle tension caused from work/personal stress or hard workouts at the gym. Massage eliminates muscle stiffness due to excess lactic acid buildup you experience every trip to the gym. Also reduces your muscles recovery time from intense workouts. It allows your muscles to rejuvenate faster.

    I've been seeing a myotherapist. Unbelievable, they can work uric acid, lactic acid, & calcifications out of your body.
    My buddy is a certified myofascial trigger point therapist. They also treat the muscles that pull your spine out of alignment.
    That, & chiropracter = *sigh* relief.
