The outside of my foot feels sore/tight (Anterior and Inferiorly to the ankle), (could be the tendon/muscle.) Any idea what could it be?

Sore foot: Ms. Pierce: with little details to work on, it is hard to say. Are you a runner? Any previous injury to foot? Does it feel like "pins and needles? " It could be a mild inflammation of the fascia, but hard to say. Try a few days of aspirin or Motrin. I always recommend warm heat pads for a few days to see if any benefit. If not, you might want to consult an orthopedic provider.

I'm a runner, and my muscles and tendons are getting increasingly sore at the top of my femur on the outside of my leg. I stretch regularly. Ideas?

Sorry just noticed: Just realized you said top of femur. If in lower leg my answer. Would stand. Out upper leg could be a bursitis or tendinitis....Even a type of fasciitis. Avoid offending activity for several weeks....Otc antiinflamatories and ortho follow up if conservative measures aren't enough.

What is remedy for sore muscles from stress and frozen shoulder/inflamed tendon?

What is remedy for sore muscles from stress and frozen shoulder/inflamed tendon?

Many Possibilities: Prolotherapy typically by itself will cause ligaments to tighten up, usually due to scarring or fibrosis of the ligaments. However now prolotherapy is used to introduce new blood supply to the area and then many times following it with the prp and/or stem cells in the area can repair the tissue/ligaments by the hopes that the stem cells regenerate the same normal tissue type.

Having muscle soreness all over after one dose of cipro (ciprofloxacin) 5 days ago for prostatitis. What are the chances of tendon rupture?

Unlikely: Tendon rupture is a possible side effect of cipro (ciprofloxacin) but it is not that common and it would not cause pain all over. It would cause pain in the area of a certain tendon and in the case of rupture loss of movement in the muscle attached to the tendon.

I tore a tendon/ muscle on my left foot. Had gone for treatments. Foot still feels tender when I stand or walk. How long before foot heals.

I tore a tendon/ muscle on my left foot. Had gone for treatments. Foot still feels tender when I stand or walk. How long before foot heals.

Depends: How long it takes a tendon/muscle injury (sprain, strain, etc.,) to heal depends on how serious the injury is. Since you have needed therapy, then the injury is not a minor one. It is also more noticeable because the injury occurred on your foot, which you have to use to walk. (An injured little finger, is easier to deal with, since you don't have to use it as often). Your Doc can tell you best.

Tendons/muscle on lateral side of forearm near the elbow spasm, swell, hurt and is tender. X-ray and ultrasound show nothing is wrong. What may it be?

Tendons/muscle on lateral side of forearm near the elbow spasm, swell, hurt and is tender. X-ray and ultrasound show nothing is wrong. What may it be?

Tennis elbow?: Might be inflammation at the origin site of the extensor tendons on the lateral epicondyle of the elbow. Ultrasound and xray would be normal; an MRI would likely show some edema/swelling there in the form of increased t2 signal, but this expensive test may not be necessary. You may just need some rest, ice, and possibly anti-inflammatory meds like ibuprofen. See doctor though if it continues.

Been taking 40 simivastin for years and never felt muscle ache until now, 4 a week, I been taking 1000mg niacin, 2g fish oil, 1200mg of ryr, this why?

Stop Statin & RYR &: The ryr is a natural statin. Statins, natural or not, can cause very serious myopathy. As I advised you last nite, stop the statin & ryr. Take at least 200 mg of a high-quality coq10 which may help relieve your myopathy. See http://www. Acoi. Org/2010convention/reichstatin. Pdf research is limited but some studies show coq10 helps: http://healthtopical. Com/healthy-living-2/healthy-2-1054.Html.
