well the pain just started a couple of week ago. its just one shoulder the left side. well no pain during the movement. just when i try to lift the weight and while leaving it down removing my collar muscle out a pain starts were the collar muscle ends. no pain in neck. yes i can lift heavy weights with with the affected side. after a day it just stops to pain. is because while i sleep i keep my head over the left arm. like i sleep with the left side of the body touched to the bed and the arm below the cushion just to make it comfortable. i have stopped sleeping that way and the pain has stopped but while working out it happens again.

Thanks for replying.

Seems you are suffering from Acromio-clavicular arthrosis. Few other conditions which mimic are Supraspinatus tendinitis / Impingement syndrome. To rule-out these conditions we need to examine your shoulder clinically. So i would just you to consult your doctor and get examined clinically. He might also order for an Xray of your shoulder to confirm the diagnosis.

Till that time, you can take pain killers - NSAID's SOS if pain is not tolerable. Avoid lifting weights, avoid doing overhead activities, avoid lying on same side.

Get well soon.
