do not do not do not lift overhead or bench again until you get diagnosed.
if you reach to your back pocket for your wallet fo you feel anything? does sleeping on the affected side ever feel off? how about lateral arm raises while loaded? if these things dont bother you, you may get off with just a few weeks laying low. i wish i had listened to that little voice in my head when things were at the stage you described. i havent done a dip or bench press since mothers day. it looks like i have another month or two to go before i can slowly add pushing/pressing moves back in.
when you are symptom free dont bench your elbows lower than your rib cage.
dont test your pain! get it checked out!
