When Lifting A Heavy Object Felt A Muscle Pop In My Arm
What causes popping shoulder, deep shooting pains in the arm, extreme muscle weakness, & inability to move arm? Has lasted 7+ years, pain 4-7 day/week
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. 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

Should I be concerned if I am hearing popping noises by heart? I also have burning sensation on chest, arms, pins and needles, muscle loss,
Burning sensation: Yes, this is something to be concerned about. I can't speak to the "popping" noises that you are having, but the numbness/tingling/burning most likely is due to nerve compression at a high thoracic spine level. You need to see a physician and have an MRI ordered to evaluate if you have cord compression from a disc herniation or some other secondary cause. ...Read more

Slipped on ice 3 days ago. Felt/heard popping sound. Severe pain in left quad muscle. Can no longer weight bear. Do I go to er?
Definitely: Falls can be very dangerous, especially on ice. It isn't unsual that we think we are ok & "shake it off" only to find we worsen with time. It could be from swelling, which can take up to 72 hrs. To get to maximum level but not being able to bear weight makes me think it could be more. I certainly would go & have it checked out to be sure. ...Read more
I have a tennis ball size haematoma on my left thigh. I slipped in jacuzzi and fell full weight on my thigh on an arm rest. I felt a 'hole' in muscle?

I lost 20 lbs but some muscle in my arms that I had from when I used to weight train turned into fat. How is that possible? I am very overweight.
Fat versus muscle.: Muscle tissue is more dense than fat, so for a given size of tissue, muscle will weight more than fat. If you're losing muscle, you'll lose weight. But the muscle does not turn into fat. What may have happened was that the muscle lessened while the fat stayed the same, so definition/shape reduced. ...Read more

How much weight per arm should I lift (what weight is normal) in order to train my chest, biceps, and similar muscles. I am sport active and in shape.
Start with a weight:
You can easily and safely lift and perform that lift at least 10 times (repetitions) and then repeat at least 1 time again (a set).
That would mean lifting the same weight 20 times (2 sets of 10 reps each).
For larger muscles, do heavier weights fewer reps (generally) and for more strength, do slightly less weight, but more reps (15-20 per set) and 3 or more sets. ...Read more
Why is all the muscles in all my arm and all my leg wasting away. I lift weight and it doesn't do anything. I use to be very tone but in losing weigh?
I'm concerned...: Unexplained loss of muscle mass in a young person is concerning (especially if it is only on one side of the body) and should be investigated in person with a physical exam and possible labs and other studies (such as nerve studies). Many things can lead to this, including nutritional problems, lack of growth hormone or testosterone, nerve damage, etc. Be sure to be seen by your doctor ASAP. ...Read more
Symptoms not of ALS:
These are not the symptoms of ALS. The onset is insidious & usually not recognized for awhile (even up to a year or longer) when odd things such as stumbling for no reason at all happen but not paid attention to. Frank weakness & weight loss is when most people remember the start also noticing muscle fasciculations which are typically in the limbs as opposed to random locations.

My arms are sore from weight training 4 days ago, is there a way to speed up muscle recovery so I can build muscle faster and train more often?
Resistance Training: You should fatigue muscles when weight training but remember to do cardio for at least 15 minutes to warm muscles and prevent tears. Also do not do same muscle group two days in a row, you may be using too much weight too quickly. Have a protein supplement after you work out as this will help muscle repair, take a few days off and return using lighter weights for your first few workouts. ...Read more
Started heavy lifting job. Now inner arm where my muscle meets elbow hurts when I twist palm up n down, can't stretch arm out, etc. How can I fix this?
After weight training deltoids have less feeling in the front and back muscles with tenderness, weakness, mild pain and slight burning in whole arm.
It is likely that you are overdoing the weight training. Try backing off a little. If that does not help, see a doctor.
