Hurt ITB (partial splits, weight went on it while I fell). Can walk, just hurts after. Any risks carrying weights in the gym to work out upper body?

Hurt ITB (partial splits, weight went on it while I fell). Can walk, just hurts after. Any risks carrying weights in the gym to work out upper body?

None I can think of!: As long as you can do activities within limits of discomfort, which you can easily tolerate, & the discomfort/pain is not getting worse, in the knee, then you can continue to move your knee joint as well. Certainly no harm in doing upper body workouts.
If getting worse, see your orthopod.
Good Luck. ...Read more

Hard to know: It may or may not have had something to do with the burger, in which case it was either something foreign in the burger which irritated your stomach or an infection which was separate and distinct from that. In either event this is not likely to last beyond 24 hrs. Hope you are better soon. ...Read more

Runners Knee Pain: Most likely you have some inflammation of the tissue around your knee or where the tissues attach to the bone.

Male breast: Lesion. If it was ultra sounded two years ago and diagnosed as a lipoma, it may or may not still be a lipoma now. Regardless it is painful, that is a criteria for removal.
