Patient : Hello, doctor. I am new to this website and do not know very well what I am doing so if this has already been answered please let me know. I was rowing today going all out in a 500m set (indoor rowing) when I hear a crack as soon as I pull the handle after about five strokes. It is a very sharp sudden pain and it really hurts when I get up, sit down(a lot) or move my arm back. When I rotate it in a circle, it completely pops out. Any symptoms of what I might have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Oh yeah, the pain is located at the bottom of my left shoulder blade on the side closer to the spine.
