I have shoulder problem since the beginning of the year. I first felt it when I was serving hard and probably wasn't warmed up enough. The pain was not so severe and went away after a few serves. At that time I didn't feel any pain on groundstrokes. Last month I played tennis for 5 days in a row and my shoulder got worse. I began to feel slight pain when I was moving my hand ( lifting a bottle or shifting gears in my car). I thought that I probably have rotator cuff inflamation and decided to rest for some time. I rested only for one week and started to play tennis again ( I thought that my shoulder was OK already). It was a mistake and it became sore again. I was feeling pain not only when I serve but on groundstrokes too. Right now I haven't played for 2 weeks and my shoulder don't hurt on every day moves, but I feel constant itching ( the sensation is something like slight pain and itching inside my shoulder). Does anybody have an idea what this itching might be? I think I'll rest for a few days more and then to start playng gradually.
