Pain in shoulder (where the deltoid meets the upper trapezius) when doing weight press (or push-ups) - AC Joint dislocation grade?

I've been lifting weights for about 3 years, but now I have a problem that don't let me train my chest or my shoulders with press/push movements. I feel pain in my shoulder (where the deltoid meets the upper trapezius muscle).

I think that is located at the AC Joint.

When I stay or do my regular daily activities I don't feel that pain, but after many hours of using that arm I can feel weekness at the affected place. When I bring my arm over my head my shoulder crack with a little sound.

I don't feel any pain when I touch or hit my shoulder, arm and the affected area.

I presume that I have a grade 1 AC joint separation or maybe grade 2. What are the grade 2 AC Joint separation
symptoms?

I didn't done the exercices that I feel pain for about 2 weeks till now. 1 week I didn't workout at all, but after that I've been doint some low intensity exercices that doesnt cause me trouble.

My problem have been evoluating gradualy, not I a big pain at a moment.

I've been taking joint supplements for 2 weeks.

I think that the problem is healing, I can feel it, but very very slow.

Suggestions? Thanks!

Thanks for the anwser Phill614, but the problem is that in my town (Bucharest) there aren't many very good doctors. I visited one and he didn't had a clue, he said I had nothing, he didnt even know the separation grades for the ac joint...

So I try to find by myself some possible anwsers to what I have. But I cannot find nowhere the detailed symptoms for ac joint grade 1 separation and symptoms for grade 2...
