I no it's going to be different for everyone but how long should I expect before it feels normal again considering I'm resting it, doing some rehabilitation exercises and taking anti-inflammatory's.
doc said it was a chronic inflammation of something something. Basically I kept lifting heavy till it hurt too much too even lift my arms up not clever I know. He's put me on some anti-inflammatory's and told me too come back in a month for some steroid injections into my shoulder if it's not better which I'm not looking forward too. It's killing me not going too the gym I just wanna know how long before I can get my ass back in the gym!
I pulled something seriously bad on my left rotator cuff last yr while doing Stabilization Pushups off of hanging chains and my feet were elevated about 2 feet off the ground. On one of the times i came down for a repetition of the push up, my body shifted to the side and just put such a strong strain on it. I didnt really feel it that much that day, But i would say i was out of the gym for at least a month n half to 2 months try to recover and doing arm rotation stretches to ease the pain...
Every shoulder injury does not involve the rotator cuff.
Depends. If it's just an inflamed ligament, just keep doing the rehab exercises you've been prescribed and don't do anything that hurts it. If you can still do squats/deadlifts/core/leg work just do that for the time being. It sucks but it's better than nothing.

I had and inflamed biceps tendon in my left shoulder for the better part of 10 months. I did physical therapy and anti-inflammmatorys and the whole nine. Like you I kept pushing it when it hurt and eventually it was constantly in pain. You need to learn what it is that aggrivates it and STOP IT until it doesnt hurt anymore, and then wait a little longer. I completely cut out what causes me pain (except for squats). It took about 3months to completely clear up from when I started rehab and stopped pushing it hard. However I still feel it all the time so I just learn what not to do to keep it as relatively pain free as I can.

Not to sound like Captain Obvious, but the speed of your recovery will depend on the severity of your injury. I had what my doc called a "grade I" tear about 5 years ago. I tried to get back into shoulder exercises a bit too early and paid the price. It really didn't feel back to 100% normal for about 6 months. The key is indeed rest for the time being. Once you do get back into the gym and things are feeling better, throw some cuff-specific exercises into your regular routine.
I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.
