Can i lift weights with mild neck and shoulder stiffness and pain. Been going on for about 2 weeks?
Intense pain in my right shoulder when I try to lift weights on an incline bench. I literally cannot lift any weight w/out intense pain. Rotator cuff?
Possibly!: If you can localize your pain ot the top (near ac joint) of the shoulder then consider ac joint as the source of pain. Certainly, other causes, such as rotator cuff tears cannot be ruled out unless proper evaluation and work-up by an orthopedist has been performed. Please see an orthopedist. In the meantime avoid any painful activitity, ice the painful area, consider the use of antiinflammatories. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Be careful: The artificial parts of a total shoulder arthroplasty are not as durable as the native joint. The more you use them the faster they will wear out. This has been clearly shown in hip and knee replacements. I would expect it to be no different in shoulder replacements. I would stick to low weights and intensity lifting. Talk to your surgeon for clarification. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I think I may have pulled a muscle under my shoulder, when I stretch my arm it hurts, I lift weights would it be best if i stop till it feels better?
Sprain/rotator cuff: The most common cause of shoulder pain and impingement of abduction and overhead reach in the setting of weight lifting is a rotator cuff tendinitis or tear of the conjoint tendon.

I noticed a bony lump on the top of my left shoulder bone. Not paining but it's grinding when rotate the shoulder. I lift weights. Cause for worry?
Prob AC joint: The AC joint is on the top of your shoulder, about 2 inches from the outside edge. I suspect this is what is bothering you. It is easily irritated by repetitive movement and strain. It would take an exam to know exactly where your problem is. Back off on your lifting and try some ibuprofen. If it doesn't go away, see your doctor. ...Read more

My right shoulder is lower than the left shoulder, also my left knee gets painful when I lift gym weights, are they inter-relatrd? Thx a lot doctors.
Probably unrelated: I would think that the shoulder height discrepancy might be related to either a scoliosis or muscular problem affecting the upper back region. The knee pain with exercise is probably related to a specific knee problem and should be evaluated by an orthopedist along with a discussion of the type of exercise which causes problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
