I've been working out since the August and am currently at 5'9 183 lbs... i was at 216 when i started. I feel awesome now, and do a good combo of lifting and treadmill work. For the past couple of months though, i've felt shoulder pain and finally decided to go to the Doc and see what was up. he said it's rotator cuff tendonitis and I should go and do some physio. Instead of going to physio, I decided to try to let my shoulders heal themselves and not do any shoulder related work, just fill the time with cardio and whatever... It was 3 weeks now w/o shoulder work and i started again today... and sure enough, the shoulder pain is back. I guess i better go to physio, just wanted to know if anybody else has had this problem and wanted to know if their condition improved, and what it is they did. Thanks in advance.
