FML - The follow-up

Today, I pulled a muscle in my right shoulder and can barely move my arm. My friends keep asking if I'm sure it wasn't from jerking off too much. Truth is, I pulled it by playing on my computer too much. FML

Pleonasm Say more :
I hold my mouse in an awkward position and my elbow floats in the air, putting the weight on the shoulder. If I play for too long, it aches. But it started when I used a machine to work out and hurt my shoulder doing the butterfly press I think.

Gotta watch your form and/or the amount you're lifting bro. Or you'll take more trips to snap city. I'd suggest avoiding machines, at least for a while. Focus on free weights to build your stabilizers; military press, lateral raises, rear delt flys (all with dumbbells). I'm totally being that "gym bro" guy that everyone hates. But I'm okay with it.

You should also strengthen your rotator cuff or you'll tear (I think it's tear) that and that hurts like a b****. I had a tear in mine and i could practically not even move it

You can permanently damage your arm/shoulder doing BOTH those things. My husband pulled a hamstring lifting incorrectly and he was in such intense pain they were close to forcing him home from deployment. Please dear God be careful.

That's a really bad position! You can get tennis elbow and up with permanent damage. My uncle works on a computer all day, and he used to hang his elbow in the air like you as well. He ended up needing to have surgery done in order for him to be able to use the arm properly again!

i usually get soar muscles on my left shoulder and arm from league of legends,but that used to happen to me with less demanding games like left 4 dead.i think it's the long hours,the wrong posture,and the bad sleep position.not so much the intensity of the game

Nobody is ever past their prime on FML! Well, unless you go brain dead. It's just witty responses. I remember seeing your comments in the Random section and felt sad people like you and perdix didn't post anymore.

I agree #9 & 30. I haven't been bere too long ( I started early 2014 ) so I have only seen their comments in the Random Section. Anyway, thank you Pleonasm for giving me a few laughs over the past year of me using this app. Congratulations on your FML being posted.

#30 - What he means is he has less free time to lurk on the site than he used to and make witty comments before anybody else thought of them. I'm getting to that stage as well - can anybody remember the last time I posted something that wasn't angry or perverted?
