Bell rings or set starts, adrenals kick in what they can, you feel better for a little while. You start resting, the pain settles back in.
Your assessment sounds spot on. I will look into the ASI. What is the treatment? Are you saying this is something I can fix/prevent by getting my adrenals back in balance rather than having to rest for a week or two?

Sounds like something a round of steroids (non-anabolic) may fix... If so, is that good to take steroids to clear up the problem then keep training. I always thought this was my body trying to tell me I should rest before I blow out a shoulder or elbow.
