NOt sure how I tweeked my right shoulder, but there maybe a problem with it or the upper chest. I can bench and do inlcines with as much weight as I normally can but I feel pain. It actually feels as if the upper pec is very tight. The other day I was doing incline dumbell presses with 120's and after I cleaned the weight up, I began to press. Well it felt like the pec was going to tear, so I just dumped the weight. I went onto hammer incline bench presses and felt no pain whatsoever. (?) I do not think its my rotary cuff. The pain runs along the collar bone more then anything.
Any help would be appreciative.

To me, it sounds like you pulled a muscle in your upper chest area. That is more than likely why it hurts on some exercises but is fine with others. You obviously did not pull your entire pec muscle but probably a small little bunch of fibers in that area. I would work around it, if it hurts stop that exercise and move on to one that does not bother it, or just take a break for a few days and go back to it. Rest is usually the best. In time it will heal.

Be very careful with this area. It was overtraining my upper pecs with inclines that caused my sternoclavicular joint to seperate 18 months ago. that combined with tight neck muscles meant I couldn't lift shoulders for nearly a year. Take care and stop doing incline work at least til the pain subsides.
