Whas I see possible is that you may have reinjured an old injury. You evidently still have most of the joint function. How is your range of motion (ROM)? Have you tested it out yet? What happened today could have been a subluxation. That awkward stress you feel when benchpressing might be shoulder instability. " Is it possible that my injury from years past was actually a full ligament tear? And if not, will I ever have a stable shoulder again?" -- John, you wonderful QB, what good do you think asking these questions here on Yahoo is going to do? They can't be answered here, my friend. You need a shoulder X-ray to rule out fractures, you need an MRI, and you need an orthopedic surgeon to give you a correct diagnosis and prognosis.

Like the other answerer said, I recommend seeing an orthopedist. They should do some physical tests, give you X ray and MRI. A ligament tear can be repaired surgically. But I think surgery should be the last resort. Instead, look into Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy. It is a low intrusive procedure that uses your body's natural abilities to heal the injury, esp. in hard to heal areas. They take your blood sample, centrifuge it, isolate the platelets, and inject them into the injured area. It is better if they include your stem cells and use ultrasound to guide the proper placement of the injection. Here is a link Hope this helps and you get better.
