Pain from shoulder down to palm. Help

After doing a serious shoulder day workout, my right shoulder feels like a headache except in my shoulder. Then when I try to get out of bed stabilizing my weight on that hand, it feels terrible. Almost like pulling a muscle, but I can feel the pain from my shoulder down to my palm. Please help. I'm 16 btw(bodybuilding and powerlifting).

It sounds like you have strained your shoulder. You will need to take a break from lifting weights/working out with that arm to give it time to heal. Make sure to stretch that arm carefully to prevent it from getting really tight/locked. If it does not get better in a couple weeks or gets worse, then make a doctor's appointment to find out what is going on.
