Hello, is it possible to have a fully torn bicep tendon  (@ shoulder ) with no pain,discoloration,swelling,visually,no sensitivity to touch?

The biceps tends to bunch up down by the elbow (Popeye deformity). I have had patients who have a torn biceps but never experienced the classic presentation described above, so it is possible for you to have a fully torn biceps without this. ...Read more

Body and skin sore to touch/achy after a month of high stress and anxiety. Can a relief of anxiety cause body tenderness?

Body and skin sore to touch/achy after a month of high stress and anxiety. Can a relief of anxiety cause body tenderness?

The opposite is true: If I'm understanding your question correctly you want to know if RELIEF from anxiety can result in body soreness/tenderness. Actually, it would be more likely to be the opposite. Anxiety of a constant or prolonged nature heightens sensitivity of the NOCICEPTIVE receptors in the skin and muscles (pain receptors) and tend to increase painful sensations. Relaxation should reduce pain sensitivity. ...Read more
