(no subject)

i a worried that i have developed some rotator cuff problems:
check there for more explanation.

not a complete tear (yet). i am taking 3 days off from swimming to ice my shoulder and rest. i have a rather swollen deltoid muscle on my right side, and it hurts to raise my arm at at the 90 degree angle point, especially if the elbow is bent. im goig to make an appt with an orthopedist today and just confirm my theories. i NEED to swm, so i need to get this problem under i thought i could train for nationals...and it looks as though im going to nursing tendons instead :(
