Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
Yes...but: Most bruises reflect extravasated of blood in the surface of the skin. Very common in pts. >65 y/o, females, pts. On anticoagulants (warfarin, aspirin, plavix, (clopidogrel) aggrenox, Pradaxa), pts with low platelets (petechiae).

Cold followed by hea: In the acute phase, right after the bruise, you should put cold compress on the area, intermittently for about four hours to lessen the bleeding and swelling. After the first day you should put hot/warm compresses to increase blood flow and resolve the injury. Do not take Aspirin or related medications in the acute phase. Read more
Recovery: The recovery for an injury varies by patient, severity, desired level of activity, and the specific muscle that has been injured. Rest ice compression elevation for the injury will aid in the recovery process. If you fail to improve, seeing an orthopaedic specialist may be required. Read more

I have a lump deep under skin in the biceps muscle in the lower1/4of humerus. It is soft/squishy. Sono is inconclusive no bruise or lipoma. What is it?
Get it seen: Lipomas are often missed on us because the density of the lipoma is the same as the surrounding fat. That would be the most common soft tissue mass that is invisible on us. Best to have an md look at it. Hard or rapidly growing masses ar more concerning. Biopsy is the only way to know for sure. But a slow growing, soft mass may be watched with a physician if it acts benign. Read more
Sprained hip muscles I worked outside two weeks mostly standing by the next day I couldn' hardly move and coughing almost dropped me, my nerves hurt. Had a bruise inside my tailbone, I tried to work outside, it happened again and deep purple bruse inside
Conservative care: Not sure what to make of the bruise, but the hip pain and tailbone/back pain could simply represent overuse or soft tissue inflammation due to the two weeks of work. Aggravation of lumbar degeneration can also cause similar symptoms. Try relative rest (not bedrest), nsaids (i.e. Ibuprofen, aleve), and ice, and see your physician if symptoms persist.

I have had a rash on various body parts for the last four days that presents as red, itchy welts that then turn hot and cause muscle pain. Any ideas?
Could be drug allerg: Drug allergies are a common cause of an itching rash. If you are taking any new medicines lately added, stop it for a couple of days. In the meantime, you can use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) once or twice a day...It might help reduce the allergy. But it can also make you sleepy, so take it at night and see if it helps.

Yes and depends: Muscles will bruise with blunt trauma and there may be intramuscular bleeding. The amount of time for healing depends on the severity of injury and may vary from a few days to 4-6 weeks. Read more
Usually these are:-: Self limiting conditions, unless you are frequently re-injuring yourself. You can try pain meds like nsaids, eg advil or aleve (naproxen) + a muscle relaxer (like flexeril) with pt including stretching exercises, massages, heat packs and avoiding the specific activity that caused it or is making it worse. Good luck. If still persists, see your doctor to make a correct diagnosis. Read more
Depressed & bruising: Some antidepressants (like ssri's) can cause easy bruising -- usually in the form of small petechiae. Serotonin receptors are on platelets (and many other locations in the body). Their clumping can decrease, esp if Aspirin is added -- thus you could have easy bruising. Weak muscles could go with depression, but I suggest seeing your doctor for diagnostic detective work on all of this. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
