Default I am so depressed (my snowboarding season may be over)

So last spring (very end of season) I took a pretty bad fall and suffered a rotator cuff injury. It wasn't bad enough that I needed surgery, but I was in pain for a few months. Over the summer I got much better and by the time this fall came around I thought my shoulder was almost a 100% back to normal.

Last sunday, I went snowboarding and took a few minor falls trying to do rails. These falls were so minor I didn't even really feel any immediate pain. Driving home, I was sore but completely fine. The next day I woke up still feeling good, no noticeable pain in my shoulder just a little soreness. Before going to sleep I did a few very light stretches with my shoulder. Then this pain appeared and started growing until my shoulder hurt pretty bad. Now, I am walking around with one arm I can't even lift my shoulder without feeling pain.

I feel like this is gonna take a while to heal again. I prey I am wrong. I am honestly so depressed that my season is gonna be over this early

Go to the doctor. It may not be as bad as you think. I thought I had wrecked my knee a few weeks ago, especially after talking to my fiance's dad (he's a doctor) on the phone describing my symptoms. He was certain I had an MCL injury (I did), but he feared there may be meniscus damage and potentially even ACL damage (there wasn't). A trip to the doctor diagnosed me with an MCL sprain but an otherwise clean bill of health. I was back on a board in a shade over two weeks.

So why are you on here when you obviously need medical advice from a trained doctor?

Damn. I sprained my MCL last year and although I could keep riding (with the help of a brace) it has taken me close to an entire year to get to 99% normal. Still, if I bump that part of my knee even gently it feels as if someone jabbed a nail into it. Getting older is so cool.

Give it a few days. I've had tons of problems with my shoulder, torn rotator cuff, tendinitis, sprains, you name it. Every time I take even a slight fall on my shoulder, it will flare up, and be sore and stiff the next day.

See a doc. Even if I did special tests to test the integrity of your shoulder and cuff I can't be positive what is going on. I can't actually see in there. The special tests i do on my patients help to rule in or out a specific diagnosis. only MRI can confirm it

when you get it fixed or rehab it..... make sure you continue to work out your shoulders, it only gets worse with time. you will start spraining stuff and hurting yourself more and more the older you get. If you have a strong muscle surounding the structure it helps alot....
