I haved had a recurring pain in my shoulder, very slight but persistent and annoying. Usually it is not there, but once in a while it has appeared. It sometimes responds to exercise, but most often I feel it just from rolling over in bed in the morning, like two sharp edges grating against one another. It discouraged me from continuing my weightlifting routine last November, and I haven't dared get back into it until recently. It is a sign of the oncoming decrepitude of my body, a little tear through which the hard wind of age seems to blow.
