I wasn't sure where to post this, this was the most suitable area I could find. I'm sorry if it's not the correct area.

Today I was at the gym doing my therapeutic exercises for my herniated disc in my lower back. I do these exercises almost daily. Today I got clumsy and un-intentionally slipped. As i was falling towards the floor my body was rotated slightly (my left side was slightly higher than my right side) Since my right side was going to hit the ground first, i stuck out my right arm to try to catch myself. As i hit the ground my arms were spread about the length comparable to bench pressing.

I got back up, got on the stability ball I do weighted-crunches on, held the weight over my head and began to do crunches when felt a spasm in the back of my shoulder and almost dropped a plate on my head.

I didn't exercise for the remainder of my session at the gym, instead I tried stretching my shoulders/lats hoping that would ease my pain, which at the time was not very severe.

I should have just let it be, i believe the stretching may have even worsened things a bit.

The pain in the back of my shoulder around my shoulder blade.
The pain is an extremely sharp pain, and the only things that seems to relieve it right now is keeping my shoulder shrugged slightly and close to my body, not moving my arm at all.

Things that trigger the pain.

-Turning my neck while keeping the rest of my body still.
-Ducking, or slouching my neck/upper back forward.
-Using my arms to lift my body ( getting out of bed, or up from a chair)
-Extending my right arm out in front of my and lifting it straight up, to be in line with my body.
-Trying to touch my back with my arm over my head.
-Extending my left arm as if i were going to hug someone.
-Taking full-sized breaths (Especially holding them, really kills me)

I have had no previous injury to my shoulder prior to this.
I iced the painful spot as soon as I got home.

I realize this may get better, but it's extremely painful right now and I'm not able to find any information online.

I will see a doctor if necessary, however, I'd like to see if anyone knows what the hell I did to myself! The pain isn't quite as low as my lat, i've included a picture with a shaded part that indicates where I'm having this pain.

Can anyone help me?
I'd greatly appreciate your input!

Bro no one can tell from what you stated, what is wrong, anyone pretending to know is full of shit. If pain persists seek medical attention, you may need an mri.
Stay off those stupid balls with weights, I have seen a good number of injuries caused by them. Any trainer who places a client with weights on one deserves a swift kick in the nuts.

Thanks a lot man. I guess my trainer deserves ... well you know what. I wasn't on the ball when it happened, and you probably realize that, but just making sure. Anyways, thanks a gain for your help!

Thanks guys. I think I may have just strained something, it's feeling a bit better today. It was so painful yesterday i thought I may have really fucked something up.

Since I have a herniated disc in my back I've got some Vicodin and Dilaudid around. I'm supplementing with AMP right now and doing a lot of cardio, trying to shed some fat.

I don't meant to hijack my own thread, but as far as I know it's not smart to depressants like opioids with any sort of stimulant. Therefore, since ive been taking pain meds the past couple of days, I'm not supplementing with AMP.

Does anyone know where I can find more information about supplementing with stimulants while on narcotic pain killers? Don't pain meds like these cause weight-gain?

Thanks for your everyone's help

These kinds of med may lower your test levels. I don't think it's a good to mess with such a powerful medicines.

Thanks,
I used to take these meds on a regular basis. I was on a 50mcg Fentanyl Patch for nearly 3 months. After getting off, i had trouble sleeping for days. Also, my libido hasn't been quite the same ... probably due to dropping test levels like you say.

I still have constant pain in my lower back. Sometimes it is worse than others. I have these meds available incase I really need them, but I try my hardest not to take them. I average maybe 1-2 7.5/325 Vicodin a week. Sometimes I use none, just depends on how badly I feel. I try to take Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen to relieve inflammation, it doesn't really do anything for pain. The only thing that helps pain are strong narcotics and my therapy. Therapy has been my pain reliever. But my program is close to an hour long, and it's impossible for my to do it all the time.

Maybe you might want to try some physiotherapy, it's my gold standard procedure to cure pain.

I'm already doing physical therapy many times a week if that's what you're referring to.

From my experience one needs at least 40 sessions at least 3 times a week to get healed.
