So I drive a Jeep, and it's a stick. Been moving this week, so lots of back and forth and lots of low gear shifting. All of a sudden, I try to put it in first and I get this shooting pain top of my right shoulder (right where medial delt meets trap). I touch it and it feels super tender and slightly swollen. Was immediately freaked that my summer workout and fishing plans were done. But when I tried to workout, I had zero issue with any of my usual chest/shoulder lifts. Get back in the Jeep, bam, it's back. Anyone ever deal with this? My best guess is its kind of a tennis elbow sort of thing. To this point, it's damn painful, but really only hits when driving.

My wife has got a Jeep with manual transmission. She just loves to drive stick. When she went to the dealership to order the vehicle, they had to search for one nationally because no one seems to want to drive manual anymore.

I totally believe this. Nobody wants a manual transmission anymore.

Did that once already moving from a 2 door to 4 door, but you're not wrong.
My wife has a 2 dr auto transmission. Never a problem shifting. I had a standard pick-up once I had to drive in heavy traffic......never again.
