about 4 weeks ago i was lifting something in the same fashion as shruging a barbell. i felt a pop in the lower inside portion of my right bicep. i didnt immediatly lose strength (i tested by lifting a light weight) but felt a tightness and soreness in the area where the "pop" occured. thinking it was a tendon tear, i went to the doc the next day and he felt a small lump in the area and ordered an mri the next week. the results came back as inconclusive, the tendons looked fine. i took it easy for another week and tried to slowly get back into a routine. at first everything was fine but this week i cant lift nearly as much as before without a sharp pain in the problem area of the bicep. could this be a strain? i have a chronic pain in my right shoulder that has bothered for months now but subsides within 30min of working out. i lift heavy, practice good form, and have never had an injury like this before.
sorry for the long story but i HATE being out of the gym and the 3 wks off for this injury is the longest ive taken in 5yrs. please help i need some advice

If you keep lifting without out letting it heal completely, it will be sore forever, everytime you lift youll feel it, for the rest of your weight-lifting life. I would give it 90 days off from all weights.
