Thanks man, that does help. I am just not sure how I would rehab. The best I get from orthopedic specialists is to lift light and then work back into it.

I had the diagnostic ultrasound today and he is considered one of the best on the world with identifying musculoskeletal. He checked everything from the rotator cuff to the brachial plexus and looked great. He said in fact, he was shocked at how clean my rotator cuff and bursa looked. Next up is the MRI next week.

Well, the old saying is true - no news is good news when it comes to injuries, so if they're not finding anything, that means that the big, obvious issues that plague most people aren't the root problem. Might still take time to identify what's going on, but the more stuff you can rule out, the better off you'll be.

Even if you have to lift light for a while (months, or even a year), it's not a death sentence. Heck, I did it for 2 years, and the worst thing that happened was I lost 30 lbs. of crap weight and had better endurance that I've had in ages. Perhaps you have to change up and find what DOESN'T aggravate things and stick with that for a good stretch (maybe doing the bare minimum for chest/shoulders for a while), but that's always an excuse to bring up other areas and put the work into spots that perhaps you didn't like working on much prior to the injury. So, if you ever have been less than pleased with your upper back, lower back, legs, etc., then this is the time to dedicate to building those parts better and putting in the time and work, may as well get ahead in other departments while you're able!

Well for me, I am and have always been rather lean and spent my teens looking like a stick figure. I have always relied on lifting weights to add some weight and bulk up to feel better about my self......so it is tough for me when i lose weight. I start to look like a skeleton with clothes. There is really nothing I can do upper body that doesn't aggravate the area....the shoulder is involved in about everything I would do for upper body. I don't want to just do curls and tricep extensions, LOL. Really sucks because I became friends with some guys in the gym and we started lifting together and pushing each other. I needed that in my life at this time and it was a nice feeling to have that comradery in the gym with the rough things I have had in my life the past few years. This was my one bright spot. And then to have the rug pulled out from under me....
I'll have to find ways to deal with it...
I don't like working out on any program if I can't hit all body parts equally since I like to have balance....and I have always done that. Legs? Squats and deadlifts bother the area. Any back exercises are hell on the area too...unless I use very light weight. Maybe just cardio till next year.

Hi guys,

I had my diagnostic ultrasound last week which showed nothing! I had my MRI today, and should hear something soon.

My Orthopedic specialist says I may have to be willing to accept that this strain or tear may always nag me and I may have to give up on heavy lifting and bodybuilding. WOW, I am crushed, I never would have thought I would be DONE at 41 years old. :(

Well, it looks like I have to just live with this pain. I have been working out hard through terrible shoulder pain, it is all in my trap. I don't care because it hasn't affected my strength, it is just pain. I take pain killers to help numb the pain. Feels like a knife going into my trap when I work out but what ya gonna do. I will have to live with it. All MRIs came back looking good so it must just be a strain I will have to live with. I move on.
