On my very first mae ukemi, I wrenched my shoulder. It's hard to get me to see a doctor, so I ignored it. I couldn't lift anything heavy for 2 weeks, or sleep on it for nearly a month. I live in Britain, so healthcare is free- I accept that your situation in the US is different, but is the pain lasts more than a few days, it's worth going as an investment in your own body- the most precious thing you have, after your mind.
