There can be overlap of both of these issues, so get checked out if concerned. ...Read more

First, get diagnosis confirmed, then if appropriate, try physical therapy or osteopathy. ...Read more

I feel pain in my shoulders,back,legs and feet and often get a muscle pull,I am taking wilgesic tablet and it releives symptoms temporarily......what should be done?would it be helpful to take mineral supplements?

Worth trying: .. especially those supplements with high concentration of electrolytes (potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium), which tend to trigger muscle pulls if their levels are low. If you are active, like an athlete, sweating and the resulting fluid loss is #1 cause of muscle cramps. You need to hydrate!! If recurrent pulls occur in odd places, visit the nearest healthcare professional for attention! ...Read more

14yrold extreme muscle pain everywhere esp in his legs. worse everyday.Nonstop cough.1wk since flu symptoms. Athletic. Feels like he ran a marathon.

Likely viral cause: If the muscle pain correlates with the timing of his flu symptoms, the virus is likely causing the muscle pain. I would recommend he see his doctor for further evaluation to be sure, especially if he is having other cold symptoms. There are some tests that can be done to assess for flu and inflammation of the muscles. If viral, time is what will allow his symptoms to improve. ...Read more

Or it could all be a flu virus and incidental bite mark from a flea. Please get yourself checked out by healthcare provider. ...Read more
