Since I've started going heavier with the weights, I've noticed that it gets more noisy and sore after doing certain exercises. During my last chest/shoulders/tris workout, I really felt it during bench press, military press, upright rows, and dips. For a day or two after the workout, it was a little sore and made lots of noises when I rotated it. I could also feel things popping around if I put my left hand over my right shoulder when I rotated it. I also could feel my scapula popping when I shrugged my shoulder.
Of course, I rotated it A LOT trying to pinpoint exactly where it hurt, which I'm sure didn't help. It's more noise and popping than pain, but there are some twinges, and if I sleep on it a certain way it feels a bit off the next day.
Given my experience with my knees, I'm worried that if I ignore it now, it will really become a problem and could mess up my shoulder for life. On the other hand, it's not really very painful, so I'm not sure how worried I should be. I know you can't really diagnose over the internet, but I'm wondering if any of you know anything about shoulders and if any of the exercises I am doing are particularly harmful. I would get it checked out but the medical care is so poor here that I doubt I'll find someone who knows their stuff. Some of the stuff I've been reading says that crepitus (noise) is nothing to worry about as long as there isn't pain... but I have a little bit of pain.
Any ideas? Thanks!
