broken collar bone, lifting weights..now painful!

Hi, I broke my collar bone Dec. 2, 2005. I just started weightlifting again on Friday and it did not hurt much until Saturday and today (Sunday) I cannot throw a football or lift up my arms without a rather sharp pain. Its nothing horrible, but i really cant do anything physical in this state.

suggestions please.

thanks

Ummmm, to make sure you have not rebroke or otherwise injured the bone.

The bone may not have healed well (or completely) the first time, and weight lifting may have caused a small fracture to recur. You should definitely go back to the doctor and get it checked out.
