Not sure where to post this...nagging shoulder pain
For the past several months (I'm not even sure how long), I've had this nagging pain in my left shoulder. I originally thought it was just muscle soreness from how I slept on it, but I'm pretty sure it's something else now.
It's not really sore, but it hurts if I move it in certain ways. For example, if I just move my arm up and down it's fine, but if I lift my arm and put it behind my head or back, it hurts, same goes if I cross it over in front of my chest.
I'll sometimes also have a sharp pain in the shoulder if I put enough weight on that arm (lifting myself up out of a chair for example) but I can lift weights and it doesn't really hurt.
I can't tell if the pain is in the muscle or in the joint itself.
My brother said he thought maybe the "soft tissue" was damaged and that it takes a long time to heal (of course, he's no expert, but has been into lifting weights for several years and knows a little bit about the muscle groups and such). Speaking of which, I moved a couple weeks ago, which of course involved a lot of lifting, and during that I really felt no increase in pain, nor any residual pain or soreness.
