Sore stomach after plank exercise. I just started them yesterday and i woke up and my stomach muscles were sore and achy. Is this normal?

More recovery time: You must be in good enough shape to participate in the plyometeric exercises. If done consistently and regularly, you can build muscle and strength at a faster rate than some other training regimens. There is a higer rate of injury reported with these exercises when unsupervised so i would recomend a trainer or exercise physiologist to guide you through a safe work out for you to meet your goal. ...Read more

For the past 2 days my stomach muscles have been hurting and sore I have not worked out or done anything differant in my life?

May be nothing: It is good to think about anything that could cause stomach muscles to be sore, such as exercise or activities. Even coughing or laughing more than usual can cause them to hurt. Sometimes they can be sore as an early sign of an infection like gastroenteritis, though, so watch for other symptoms. ...Read more

Had a cough for a few weeks but now my stomach is so sore down near both my sides it's sore to cough / take deep breath ? Is it muscle

Sounds muscular.: We can get such muscular soreness from prolonged coughing. This can occur in the muscles of the chest or the abdomen. If you're having any other abdominal symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating) then you should consider other possibilities. ...Read more

Hi! I am 22 years old and recently as of last Monday after I got back from a trip in the mountains I had muscle aches, weakness, nausea, and a constant stomach hunger. Then the day after the only symptom I had for 3 days was the stomach hunger no matter h

MTN Air: i get to work in Appalachia and I have heard that the mountain air can increase your appetite. What I am most concerned with however, is rickettsial disease caused by ticks. Please do a thorough tick check behind ears soon hairline and if you find any make sure it is fully removed. Keep an eye out for weird rashes and recurrence of these symptoms in the next few weeks and see local doctor. ...Read more

Let your doc know: Your symptoms may be related to your initial infection versus the addition of an antibiotic and its side effects. Keep in mind that the antibiotic may or may not work for your infection. Your best resource remains the prescriber who saw your first and can decide best what to do next. Most offices now have phone coverage after hours due to regulations. ...Read more

When should I worry about a sore pectoral muscle which I hurt? It hurts to breathe and if I need to use my stomach muscles (crunches).

When should I worry about a sore pectoral muscle which I hurt? It hurts to breathe and if I need to use my stomach muscles (crunches).

Healing time: It may take a few weeks for the muscle to heal. If it is getting better, even if gradually, give it time and some rest. If you do not notice any difference in two weeks, it would be time to see a doctor.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

How long do ars hiv fever normally last? I had a fever with stomach pain and muscle aches for one day

Acute HIV infection: Fever alone almost never is due to ARS; it only occurs along with other symptoms like sore throat, enlarged lymph nodes, and sometimes skin rash. ARS symptoms typically start 7-10 days after catching the virus (never sooner than week). Once fever or other ARS symptoms start, usually they last at least 1-2 weeks. If possibly exposed or otherwise concerned, see a doctor ASAP. Good luck. ...Read more

I have muscle aches everywhere stomach hurts on lower right side and lower middle, I get chest pains, pain in both arms. Should I go to er?

See a doctor soon: It depends on the severity of your symptoms and how long this has been going on. You may not need immediate attention in the ER, but call your doctor right away to find out. If you don't have a doctor, go to an urgent care clinic. If you are healthy at your age it is unlikely to be a heart problem. More likely infection or inflammatory condition. Further evaluation is required. ...Read more

Iv got congested sinuses and chest. Cough w/ phlegm. muscle aches w/ weakness. no stomach prob. no fever. what can i do at home to help myself. ?

Rest, soup/hot drink: It sounds like you have a viral infection-possibly the flu given the many cases we are seeing in the hospitals now. Rest is vitally important. Keeping very well hydrated also is important -chicken soup, hot lemon tea, etc should help. Try over-the-counter cough medicine/Tylenol. If you're feeling worse, see a doc for formal evaluation and treatment, esp. if you develop fever. Hope you feel better ...Read more

Motility disorders can also cause bloat such as gastroparesis which also ...Read more
