Pain and dark urine: It can be hard to tell whether a person has just pain from a workout or has exertional rhabdomyolysis. One should stay hydrated by drinking adequate fluids, and if the urine is brownish, if the muscle pain is severe, or if muscles are swollen, a doctor can evaluate for rhabdo (blood and urine testing). Rhabdo may be more likely if there was a sudden increase in the level of training intensity. ...Read more

I had rhabdo, and was released from the hospital after being on a IV for 4 days. My legs still hurt after a week. Is this normal? When will it improve

I had rhabdo, and was released from the hospital after being on a IV for 4 days. My legs still hurt after a week. Is this normal? When will it improve

We don't exactly: Know when d leg pain will disappear completely. The recovery depends on your body's response to hydration- drinking lots of water every day will facilitate recovery. Have your kidney function, electrolytes and cpk/ muscle enzyme monitored constantly until u recover completely. Tylenol (acetaminophen) may ease the pain. Http://www. M.webmd.

65 male, 2 nd case asp pneu in care facility. Took 24 to send hospital. Early rhado, died 4 hrs later. Could this have been prevented, from noro virus?

The question is when was the rhado dx'ed and how treated. Sounds like pt very dehydrated and immune compromised (underlying disease or immune exhaustion).
