So, some odd 6 years ago ( was 18 at the time ) I used to lift weights. 3x a week. I used a strength training program called "rippetoes". mainly 3x5 sets of compound heavy lifts. I always noticed something funny.. My left pec (closer to the arm pit area) would always have a tingle / tweak feeling every now and then. one day i PR'd on 3x5 because I was lifting with a friend.. It felt like had strained my pec! Oh no! So I wait for 2 months then I realize one thing.. no matter what I do it keeps feeling like I re strain it.. but one thing always threw me off.. it was never super painful like a strain. not too long later.. my shoulder starts to hurt a little bit too and the pain eventually radiated to my elbow. It wasn't anything crushing. But lifting weights would feel good for a few hours then it got insanely sore / painful the next day. eventually I get an ulnar nerve surgery (3x at this point) on my left elbow.. The first surgery? everything was 90% better for about 6 months then one night it started to hurt again. the other two weren't really successful either. the only thing i notice it fixed long term was the constant clicking/cracking in my shoulder. here i am with the same pain years later. I always will feel like i strain the back of my neck super easy and the back part of my shoulder blade (in between the blade, neck , and trap) kind of hurts when i look to my left. on top of that, i have a weird lower back pain when i bend over. im about 6 ft 2 185 lbs, lean and well in shape because thankfully i can run. can anyone give me an idea on what is going on and has drastically lowered my standard of living?
