I experienced something similar, although in reverse. I had chronic shoulder pain for about 6-8 months, which I had been trying to rehab with rotator cuff strengthening exercises and avoiding bench, shoulder press, etc. All of this had some, though limited success. I started taking fish oil caps last winter and within about a week my shoulder pain almost completely disappeared. I can now do hspu, shoulder press, ring dips, etc., generally w/o or with very limited pain. Fish oil has proven anti-inflammatory properties, which are also likely to be responsible for its cardiovascular benefit. Though less noticeable and more subjective, I think that I also have less DOMS than before fish oil supplementation. I haven't really stopped taking it, so I can't comment on how quickly the benefits disappear.
