I'm guessing that it might be impingement, mostly because I have a mild case of it too. Google it. What fixes it is very simple: hang by your hands, palms forward, for as long as you can, as many times as you can, say two or three times/week. I can manage it for 3 reps of 1 minute with 1-2 minute rests between reps. Fixed me up in about a month of that. Plus my forearms got quite a bit stronger . . . The object of the game is to reshape the acromion, a bone in your shoulder.

The dumbbell work is good, too. I superset dumbbell side raises, front raises, and rear raises. Lightish weights are best, 3 sets of 12-20 reps with enough weight so that the last few reps are tough.
