    Possible collarbone bruise or fracture?

    Hi,

    I've been having pain in my right lower collarbone area. The bone near the bottom seems to be swelled or popping out more than the left. The pain is tender and the area around it are also sore.

    I am pretty sure i injured it about 4 days ago weight lifting specifically while doing incline bench and dips. The day after i was just sitting at work in a hunched bad posture and the pain suddenly hit me.

    Specifically it hurts when i press on the bone, and i feel it also when i stretch my arm straight up, across my chest, and backwards.

    I think it has improved a bit since the initial injury. ALSO, I didn't think it was serious at first so I continued to workout (doing pushups and bench and shoulder presses) the day after as well for about two more days because i could push through the pain and thought it was just sore.

    What do you think the problem is? Is it my collarbone or just the tendons/muscules around it? I am very worried now and in alot of stress because it hasn't healed yet!

    Thanks!
