So I've been given a time frame of 2-3 weeks from now until I can go back and start lifting again as if I am just starting. Doc said absolutely nothing heavy, low weight HIGH reps for about 2 weeks before I start building again. This is so depressing... it was a lifestyle for me going to the gym 6 days a week and feeling so healthy and strong


I went to the gym tonight to help spot my workout partner, and I hopped in the bench and just lifted the bar off to see where I'm at, and my shoulder was perfect, but my wrist on the same arm as my injury was SO painful... I couldn't even believe it. It was honestly an 8/10 pain scale trying to support the bar bell without any weight on it. My right wrist was fine as always, but my left literally could not support the bb. I have absolutely no idea wtf is going on because prior to tonight I have never had a weak wrist, or any injury, I didn't bang it or jam it or anything in recent memory. Is it possible that after only 3 weeks out of the gym it has lost its strength to support even just the barbell? I'm a medical mystery I just don't get it. But I was happy to feel that my shoulder wasn't in any pain with just the bar.

That's because it's tendinitis. It will tighten everything in the arm. My elbow got extremely tight as well.

I never knew shoulder tendinitis could go as far as the wrist. Man this fvcking sucks. I've just picked up some L-glutamine powder to put in my milk now cause I read its pretty good at healing muscle injuries, could be wrong but I'm willing to try anything.

Best thing for it is ibuprofen and ice. Frequently. It's not a muscle so I don't think glutamine will help. It will be one of those things that will completely disappear one day, just don't overuse it for a couple weeks

So I'm at about 3 weeks into recovery right now from day 1 of the injury, and I got to say that I'm seeing a lot of improvement. Daily activities like taking off a coat, opening doors with my left arm, picking up the backpack on that arm, flipping dump trucks etc is not hurting me anymore!


My PT estimates that I have about 1 more week of NSAIDs and ice before I can start lifting very light weight and extremely high reps. I actually went swimming last night, and it felt great! Did about 300-400 yards freestyle and some breast stroke just to try to put some resistance on my shoulder. I had some slight discomfort late last night and most of today from the swimming, so I'm gonna probably give it another full week of nothing and see where I'm at next Thursday / weekend region. Hoping I can get back into it not this Monday coming but next.
