Subluxation likely: Assuming in gymnastics your arm was likely outstretched and potentially externally rotated, subluxation (transient dislocation) of the glenohumeral (shoulder) joint is definitely one of the more likely injuries. Your sense of heaviness relates to pressure on the underlying nerves heading from neck down toward arm past the shoulder joint. Orthopaedic evaluation is warranted to avoid further injury.

If there is no pain.: Then it could just be a tendon that is not tracking correctly and rolling over the bone as opposed to being in it's correct anatomical place.
