Muscle "repair" or : pain will not respond to amino acids. Not clear what you mean by repair? If referring to muscle pain/aching. myoglobin will be released from injured muscle tissue. Your best bet is to lay off weights and switch to low and high impact aerobics. Have a physician check your urine for signs of myoglobinuria and excessive proteinuria. Definitely back off the amino acids for 7-10 days: should be fine.
