another rotator cuff injury?

I was lifting weights for 6 months last year and then took a couple weeks off for uni exams. I came back to the gym, started to bench and then as i was pushing for 1 more rep, my shoulder went back and it felt as though my shoulder poped out/in. This was Nov. 6th 2007. I would get pain anything I try to lift anything over the head. Anyway since then, the majority of the pain is gone but i slightly still feel it sometimes when i lift my arm up and push it back. I thought it would be healed by now butt hen again in Novemember/early December I was doing a few exercises to strengthen the area. My question to those who have had this unfortunate injury before is how long will it really take to heal and how badly do you think I injured it according to my description? To be honest, I don't think its that bad of an injury but since it has been almost 4 months since the injury and i still have a little pain when lifting my arms up only (see I want to see back into bodybuilding that is why it is bothering me, otherwise it isn't that much of a problem unless i do something that requires heavy overarm lifting then i feel it a tiny bit). Thanks

Re: another rotator cuff injury?

my first question to you would be have you seen a doc to have this evaluated at all yet?there are just so many different areas in that shoulder area that could be the problem ya know?a doc would be very helpful in just really evaluating the movements you still are abe to do and what you can't right now and be able to give you a much clearer idea of what may have been affected in that injury.unfortunetly,the only real true way of really seeingwhats up in the shoulder would be with an MRI.this could be just a sprain or strain or something a bit deeper into your shoulder.seeing your doc for that eval and seeing if doing PT may help you is a good way to really find out where you are at.i'll tell you one thing,when i had my shoulder MRI done since we were already pretty certain i did tear my rotator cuff just based on the type of pain and the fact that i couldn't lift with my arm fully extended,i was really kind of shocked at the overall wear and tear damage i had in that one little area.i am as we speak,recouping from my rotator cuff surgery,hence the crappy typing,one arm is in a sling,of course my right arm.you really do need this looked at by your doc just to make certain everything is really okay in there.an x ray wouldn't beable to tell you much about the 'real' in depth problems so that wouldn't help a whole lot,but the MRI,if really needed after your doc evaluates this,would give you the best possible info.knowing what the problem is will allow the best possible healing or treatments.otherwise,this could become a more chronic type of problem.you just need to know what you did.good luck,hopefully you just strained the muscle.please keep me posted as to what you find out,K?
