Post subject:  recurring unknown shoulder injury

it happened in the end of 2019 i went to smash a really high ball on the forehand and i missed and kind of stopped the movement of my torso but my arm kept its momentum so it twisted a bit to the side, it made a really crisp sound similar of crushing something in a mortar and pestle and i felt as if my whole arm had moved a whole cm downward but the pain took a bit of time to start like a very light burn, i went to the medic to see if it was something but there was nothing wrong with my x-ray or with the normal exam but it keeps happening whenever i try to do any sort of twisting motion with my arm, if anyone has ever herad of something similar please tell me

Maybe go to a sports doctor. Some general practitioners will "specialise" on sports related ailments.

Use this web forum for ideas but get diagnosed and treated by a qualified medical professional.

An x-ray will only show damage to the bones in your shoulder you need a ultrasound to check out for possible ligament damage. Bone damage can heal but if it is a ligament tear it will only get worse, if so like me you will need a shoulder reconstruction.

Ligament stretching, ligament strain, ligament tear
A ligament strain or strain is understood to be the overstretching of ligaments (ligaments). The ligaments, which consist of firm connective tissue, have the task of stabilising joints and limiting the range of movement to a functionally sensible level. Strained ligaments mainly occur during sports, but can also happen in everyday life when joints are exposed to unusual movements or stress. The affected joints swell, hurt and are not able to bear much weight. Strained ligaments are treated with splinting and immobilisation of the joint.
The ligaments (ligaments) consist of little stretchable, firm connective tissue. They are found in every joint in the body. The ligaments stabilise the joint and ensure that the joint's natural range of motion is not exceeded. Strained ligaments (also called pulled ligaments) occur mainly during sports or as a result of sudden or violent movements in everyday situations. The impact of force stretches the ligaments, which are actually not very elastic. Depending on the intensity of the force and the strength of the ligament, it is stretched more or less - at least to a certain degree. If a certain degree of stretching is exceeded, the ligament can also tear completely or partially (ligament tear).
Strained ligaments occur most rarely at the elbow or in the shoulder. Ligament strains account for about 20 per cent of all injuries in sports. However, it is difficult to determine how many ligament strains occur in everyday life, as not all cases are medically examined and treated.

Torn tendon
The symptoms of a torn tendon in the shoulder develop slowly; load-dependent pain at the side and front of the joint is typical. There may also be a reduction in strength when lifting the arm to the side. The pain often occurs at night when the patient is lying on his or her side.
If a tendon is torn in the shoulder or upper arm, the affected person usually has severe pain. The shoulder joint can then only be moved to a limited extent.
The diagnosis is made by a thorough examination with ultrasound or another imaging procedure. Depending on the type and severity of the injury, the torn tendon in the shoulder is either operated on or treated conservatively.

A tendon tear (shoulder) is one of the most common wear-related tendon injuries and is often the cause of shoulder pain.

The shoulder joint is a complex unit with a main joint and three smaller secondary joints. The main joint consists of the loose glenoid cavity, which is largely formed by the scapula and the humerus of the upper arm bone.... The bone guidance of the shoulder joint is relatively free compared to other joints. This means that the arm can be moved in many directions. The shoulder joint is stabilised by a large number of muscles, ligaments and tendons that can tear under high stress. Particularly important is the rotator cuff (ring of four muscles), which attach to the shoulder blade and with their tendons to the head of the humerus. These tendons run under the connective tissue-bony joint roof (acromion) and are particularly susceptible to a tendon tear under stress. Shoulder pain often originates from the rotator cuff.

Another tendon runs in the area of the shoulder joint: the long biceps tendon, which - starting from the arm flexor muscle in the upper arm (biceps) - runs through a bony groove to the upper edge of the shoulder socket. It can also tear.
I think you should have the latter checked if the arm suddenly moves down one cm out of the blue.
