My arm was overextended and I heard a small pop sound. No swell or bruise, but when I move it fast some pain & the muscles seem to slide over the arm?

Possibly a strained: Tendon or sprained ligament. If d range of motion is ok I won't worry too much about it. Follow up with your doctor for any concern. You can apply ice packs for first two days then one packs. You can take over the counter nsaids for pain. Take care and god bless u! http://orthoinfo. Aaos. Org/topic. Cfm? Topic=a00111. Read more

I'm taking amox/k clav 875-125 and now my right arm muscle is sore and starting to bruise I don't recall any injury to my arm could it be from the med?

Possibly: Possibly, but not likely. It is a reported side effect in <1% of all patients. It is more common in meds with Aspirin or nsaids (ibuprofen, naproxen) as an ingredient. It may also be related to the reason you are taking the antibiotic. If it continues or gets worse, see your doctor. Read more

It feels like a bruise in my biceps muscle underneath my arm halfway between the armpit and elbow. When I press it, it feels like a small lump.

Maybe: NO history is available but this may be a bruise of sorts.
There may be a small vessel rupture and could have created a small lump called a hematoma. Have you looked to see if it appears bruised?
Also what have you been doing? Have you been playing hard or roughhousing. See your doc and see if he can help you with this. Read more

Is it normal for my arm to hurt a week after donating blood? Feels like a muscle ache in AC area and is still bruised pretty badly

Is it normal for my arm to hurt a week after donating blood? Feels like a muscle ache in AC area and is still bruised pretty badly

Unusual, But: Not unheard of especially considering the bruising you describe. You might want to call the donation center to let them know as well as ask their advise. Usually the ache will go away when the bruising does and that may take a couple of weeks. Oh and thank you for donating blood since it helps save lives and some people are unable to give blood because of their health or other concerns. Read more
