    Dunno. I'd give it a few days and see what happens. If not any improvements, go see the doc.

    Could be rotator cuff? When I hurt mine (doing BP,) I initially thought it was a problem with my deltoid. My advice is to definatly take a little time off and see how it feels. You don't want to **** around with RC injuries.

    that does sound like the rotator cuff to be honest, though it could simply be strain. did you try the test on the link you gave, particularly this one...

    Hold your arm at your side, bend your elbow, and turn your wrist so your thumb points toward the ceiling. Your health professional will try to force your hand in toward your stomach as you resist by trying to rotate your arm outward. If your rotator cuff is weak or torn, you will not be able to hold your arm steady as your health professional pushes on it...

    and doing a front raise motion against resistance?

    also, does lying on it hurt?

    lying on it doesnt hurt really, and i passed that test, but i also read the pain is more in the shoulder usually? and mine is in the top side of arm? so maybe ice will help?

    the thing i dont get is, it says it comes from too much pushing and not enough pushing (aka weak lower back), but i am doing the baby got back workout, so how is that possible. im just so pissed off i have to deal w this bs.
