Oxys masking injury

I've had a hurrendous shoulder/bicep injury which causes me to struggle to train biceps.
 
Oxy's seemed to have masked this injury i assume from the build up of synovial fluid around my shoulder joint.
 
Since ive come off them it's back to its previous problem with training them!
 
Is this linked directly to the oxy's
 
im thinking of combating this problem by using occlusion training and going really light on biceps.

    Yes the Oxys will be causing a temporary increase in water/fluid in the joint.
    This due to its "oestrogenic" effects. Although it is not an aromatising compound it will still stimulate the oestrogen receptors itself. This is not due to oestrogen but is thought to be more prolactin related.
    This is the reason that Anti-E`s will not reduce the bloating/water caused by Anadrol.
    As for occlusion training I dont believe this will help much. 
    What type of injury is it? is it tendon/connective tissue? 
    Have you had any scans done to see what the exact injury is ?

    It's a complete weakness in the left bicep, along with numbness in my little finger.
     
    I've had physio, chiro and nobody can find a problem.
     
    i think personally it's work related being sat typing all day, when i had the christmas period off it near enough dissapeared. Occasionally it rears its head during lat raises at my shoulder joint, linking me to think it might be a nerve connection issue between shoulder and hand passing through the bicep...
     
    When on the oxys a very very weak and flat bicep was constantly pumped up and strong, now im off i struggle to get any pump and the muscle seems to have disspeared into it's shell again. very frustrating to say the least.
     
    I'm thinking as i want to avoid C17 on future cycles as my liver doesnt react well to maybe go with Var to aid with the joint/add water but be less/non-toxic.

    It sounds like RSI (Repetitive strain injury) to me , most likely due to a muscle imbalance.
    A Physio should have been able to identify this, I would ask for a second opinion. 
    I have found there to be a varying degree of knowledge between the different Physios that I have seen over the years. Their ability depends as much on their individual experience as to how highly qualified they are.
    Trigger point massage is something to look at, it can be very effective for resolving muscle imbalances.
