Muscle contraction: Some people experience muscle contraction, pulling on joints/causing discomfort even when only small amounts of stress are encountered. Focus your energies on learning effective relaxation techniques: use visual imagery (imagine a peaceful setting) coupled with deep breathing, or progressive muscle relaxation focusing on tensing/relaxing each muscle group. If worsens/persists, see Doc for eval.
