I worked on my trapezius and its super sore and I know that it's going to take days to heal, but what can I do for now, to lower the pain?

Drink plenty of H2O: usually after work outs your muscles give off something called Lactic acid. That is the reason you have soreness and pain. You need to drink plenty of water to get it out of your system. That should help. Also it is ok to take over the counter NSAIDs if you can tolerate them to help in the short term. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Muscle/nerve injury?: You are describing what sounds like a muscle weakness issue. The trapezius muscle and rhomboids are most likely involved.

Seek evaluation with either a sports medicine trained physician (orthopaedic surgeon or family practice). ...Read more
