Just when I thought I was out...it pulls me back in! TMS never fails to amaze me with its creativity and discipline. I wish I worked as hard with my company/career as TMS does at being a pain in my a$$. I'd be a billionaire. Anywho- I got "diagnosed" with a "small rotator cuff tear" on my right shoulder about a year back. I took time off, did PT (cuz I didnt know any better) and it "healed". 4 months ago I get the same pain in my left shoulder. Thinking its the exact same thing and, being that I am a bodybuilder...I change my routine around in order to give it some rest. 3 months go by and no improvement. So, 4 weeks ago, I decide to cut out ALL pushing movements in the gym, and cut everything out that could possibly bother it...as a test. No improvement. I am 99.9% sure its TMS. Heres the problem though: it doesnt bother me AT ALL, other than when I am in the gym-doing a "pushing" movement. All of my other TMS equivs would pop up and drive me nuts at any given time but this only hurts when I am using that muscle. So I'm left with thinking: "this particular muscle really is damaged" or, "TMS is sneakier than I thought and its messing with one of my loves, bodybuilding". Assuming its the latter, do I just "lift-through" the pain and power through? Mind you, the pain is excruciating when I try to lift with it, which I tried doing at one point for a couple of days straight but stopped out of fear of making it worse.
