      Welp I am just going to post here to complain about the slight soreness/pain in my left scapula.  I am low bar squatting, overhead pressing, and barbell rowing all of which seem to be playing a large role in this “pain”.  I have a hard time calling it pain because I think of pain as piercing and unbearable, but this is more like sore throb.  

      For low bar squatting I feel like because the 150lbs I am doing is laying largely on my scapula.  I feel like overhead pressing I may not have the range of motion although I feel like I am externally rotating with my arm behind my ear — maybe with weight I actually am not?  I am trying to break the bar and make sure to keep my abs and butt tight.  
      The bench press maybe a cause as well as when I arch my back and break the bar I feel it as well.  Is this my ribs not mobile enough?  
      I started smashing the area, but it doesn’t really feel tight — more like really supple.  For instance when I do banded distractions I feel like I may be hyper mobil perhaps.  
      Edit to add:  I am going to try and specifically point out my infraspinatus m. and the teres major m.  perhaps my rhomboid major m.  
      What do you all think?

      it depends on where you feel the pain.  where is the hurt on your scap?  the back on the top?

      It is likely a bulging disc in your neck causing the pain so be careful!
