How do I know it is only DOMS and not something worse?

I am new to crossfit -- I noticed that in the two workouts that I have done that have involved a lot of pushups that in addition to anterior deltoid pain i have been weak for 7-14 days, in particular only able to do 7-8 dips (with significant discomfort) compared with 20 usually. Is this atypical? should I be more careful and scale the workouts more? I like to push it, but I don't want to do harm.

Re: How do I know it is only DOMS and not something worse?

Probably this:

Scaled PLUS not do excessive volume when you started... very slowly ramp into the physical activity. It was probably too much to start off even scaled.

Significant decrease in ability to do reps indicates that you probably destroyed a fair number of myofibrils at the very least..
