Pain in the shoulder after doing intense exercise. What to do?

I am a skinny guy. I was doing stretching exercise with a chest expander. After a week, I started feeling consistent pain in my left shoulder and one day it began unbearable. I stopped doing the exercise after that. Now i get a bone rubbing feeling and it pains a lot when i move my shoulder up and down. I feel tired all day. My bone rubs and I can even feel the sound. What should i do. I have applied some creams for muscular sprains etc. But , that was not helpful. Please help.

Hello & thank you for posting on HCM
It seems you have developed acute sprain of the shoulder due to continuous exercise.
You have done right thing by stopping exercise & also you must be seen by a Dr who may advise re getting a XR done / USS in order to rule out any ligament / muscle tear.
Also take some pain relief (paracetamol) with anti inflammatories which will work better than local cream applications
Depending on the test results you may need rest+ gradual physiotherapy OR surgical repair if there is any torn muscle/ ligament (depending on degree of damage)
Hope this helps
