    A couple of times in the past I 'popped' something in my neck area doing shoulder press. Not sure why but for the next 24 hours or so it was intense knife like pain in my neck area. I still got pain a week after but less and less. Been told it's muscular issue.

    Rested it for a few months without any gym work (and certainly no shoulder press related stuff). But coming back to the gym I'm obviously very sensitive to the area and when I do work my shoulder area I find that the next day my neck feels sore and uncomfortable and verging on the pain that I feel when it does pop - which makes me worry that I'm close to popping it again! Now I'm scared to work my shoulder at all. I would also say this applies to when I'm working my upper body in general also. If I go heavy on bench press I feel the tensions in my neck area although I don't get any after effects like I do the next day when working my shoulder area.

    Has anyone had this experience?

    You tried improving your shoulder flexibility?

    how would i go about that exactly? If anything I am too flexible! I've done some stretching to it but then it's difficult to really work out that area in terms of that.
