Re: Can't raise left arm up
One possibility is a rotator cuff irritation, which is a common shoulder problem.
My shoulders were also extremely painful, especially when I reached across my body, or lifted my arms above my head, etc. When I made an incorrect movement with my arms, the pain would be severe and would take a little time before the pain would ease. The longer I let it go, the worse it got.
I was able to restore full functionality back to my shoulders and arms by slowly and carefully building up my shoulder muscles. It took my quite a while, doing very simple, non-painful, shoulder-strengthening exercises. Currently I am able to do pushups, weight lifts, weight curls without any discomfort.
The cure, for me, was to wake-up my shoulder muscles so that they would better support my rotator cuffs.
