I exercised three days and I have muscle pain I should exercise more?

I exercised three days and I have muscle pain I should exercise more?

Day of rest OK too: If you are just getting started with exercising or returning after an hiatus, you can expect some "startup soreness". It is ok to work through the soreness, and it is also ok to add a day of rest ocassionally. You might try alternating your regimen with 2 days of exercising followed by a day of rest. Nsaids (anti-inflammatories such as motrin, naproxen, advil) can also help with muscle soreness. ...Read more

I have upper thigh pain from running i rested my muscles for a week but still have pain. I was told to run slowly . Is it okay to still do crunches?

Yes: You may have itb syndrome. This is inflammation of a band of tissue that runs along the side of your leg. There is also a fluid filled sack beneath it that can get inflamed. That is called bursitis. If your pain hasn't resolved in a few weeks with anti inflammatories, then you should see a doctor. Crunches should be fine to do. ...Read more

Is it normal to miss your period two times in a row? I started at 13 and I am now 15. I have been training for cheerleading every monday. I haven't had any symptoms for anything lately.

If : If you are having sex, then a missed period could indicate pregancy. Otherwise, it is normal to have an irregular menstral cycle in your adolescent years. Changes in your activity level, such as your cheerleading practice, can also cause irregularity in your menstral cycle.

I have tightness in my leg under the calf when I am walking or exercising i work out 6 days a week with shawn t and i think i may haved pulled or strained my muscle, what should I do ?

I have tightness in my leg under the calf when I am walking or exercising i work out 6 days a week with shawn t and i think i may haved pulled or strained my muscle, what should I do ?

I : I agree that if you are able to walk, you may have a simple strain/sprain. However, I do not think that you need to see an orthopedic surgeon because of a sprain after 7 days. You see one when surgery needs to be done. An evaluation by a qualified primary care physician will be the first place to start. A good physician will know if this is a sprain/strain/tear/clot/etc and if surgery is needed and will make a referral to a good pain specialist if it is non surgical or a good orthopedic surgeon if it is surgical. ...Read more

Hi I have had cramp in my legs for over a week doc says i can exercise from tommorow but i still have cramp when can I exercise again im getting sad?

It depends: It depends on what the problem is. If it is a muscle strain, often several days of rest is sufficient, but if it is an injury to a tendon, a tear in a muscle, or other more serious injury, it might need physical therapy or other treatment. If your doctor has cleared you to start back, make sure you build up gradually and stretch your muscles well after exercise. ...Read more
