My doc says muscle soreness/issues can cause nerve issues. How?

My doc says muscle soreness/issues can cause nerve issues. How?

No: Muscle soreness can be from a nerve issue, not the other way around. Maybe you misheard the doctor. Muscle soreness may be from overuse, thyroid problems, rare muscle diseases or simple dietary treatments such as balancing your diet. I would get another opinion if the doctor said that muscle problems cause nerve problems.

DOMS is complex: The answer to this question is complex, especially in the "what causes" portion.

Can ALS cause muscle soreness and mild pain in my bicep. I have twitching there too. Could the twitching and soreness be just from a pulled muscle?

Can ALS cause muscle soreness and mild pain in my bicep. I have twitching there too. Could the twitching and soreness be just from a pulled muscle?

Check out my answer: I just sent you off an answer. You may relax. Your symptoms are not typical or even mildly suggestive of ALS. Your age is younger than any described case in history of what is referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease or the classical form of ALS. If there's no obvious reason for the soreness in the biceps and it persists you should see your doctor. But rest assured the diagnosis will not come back ALS.

TMD dx. Ear pain, sore muscle down front of neck, popping jaw. Can this cause lower jaw pain next to molars under tongue? Cold fluid causes ear pain?

TMD dx. Ear pain, sore muscle down front of neck, popping jaw. Can this cause lower jaw pain next to molars under tongue? Cold fluid causes ear pain?

Pain and dysfunction: If the tmj/tmd issues last for awhile, some symptoms can affect the ear (s) in many ways. You may develop ringing in the ears; earaches, popping-grating-clicking that is heard constantly in the ears; roaring muffled sounds; hearing loss; on and on. It is better to see an ENT first if you have ear symptoms to rule out it being the ears as the source of the problem.
