Was doing bicep curls. Suspect a tendon tear. When will the clicking leave?

I injured my left shoulder 7 days ago, lifting weights. I was doing biceps curls with too heavy of weight. I suspect a bicep tendon tear near my shoulder. However, my shoulder is popping/clicking when i do windmills. currently I am awaiting leave into the armed forces and I cant have clicking because of physical standards. When my shoulder is fully healed, will the clicking go away? Thank You

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM. It is very unusual to develop tears in the proximal (upper) biceps tendon and infact distal (lower) tendon tears are common. You might have developed simple tendinitis which usually heals within 3 weeks of giving rest to that part. If it still hurts even after 3 weeks, an MRI scan is mandatory to rule out any rotator cuff tears which are really troublesome injuries and should be treated promptly. Hope this helps
