Arm exercises how often

Common Questions and Answers about Arm exercises how often


Avatar n tn I do things like crunches, push-ups, and squats on the dome. Are there exercises I should stay away from and are there exercises that are recommended to be done.
Avatar n tn The pulling and tugging you feel is possibly (and I say possibly since I don't know you or the circumstances but I'm as active as you are) mild/moderate swelling that has accumulated above the sleeve OR (this is my general problem with the tightness) sometimes we don't use the arm like we used to when we were young and it just tightens up. I have to continually stretch my arm out with the exercises so that it doesn't return to a tight state.
Avatar f tn what would cause the pain in my upper arm to come and go at will and at night wake me up with the pain from it as well as pain during the day?
Avatar n tn I should be able to wear shirts in medium or small (all my arm, torso length, etc. measurements look good with small and medium) but I wear large because of how it sticks out. I don't eat meat besides seafood. I don't eat horribly unhealthy, but I don't eat wonderful either. I do love vegetables, but I also love carbs. I drink coffee regularly, and I have anywhere between 1 to 5 beers a week (but it's scattered, mostly with dinner. I don't drink a lot, I don't get drunk).
Avatar n tn My husband suffered from shoulder & arm pain after a stroke until a physiotherapist (Dr. Vasa) taught me how to do certain fairly simple manipulations of his shoulder and scapula, which relieved the pain after about a week of doing the manipulations. She tells me that what she taught me is absolutely routine and is known to every PT & OT. If that's true, I don't know why no one showed it to me in the months my husband was in residential rehab.
539750 tn?1226525277 It is being squished and there is inflammation. That is what is causing the pain in the arm. Often this is a result of an old sudden flexing of the neck. Perhaps from an automobile crash. Perhaps from a boxing injury. Maybe a fall. A co-factor may involve an element of arthritic degeneration. It is probably what is called a subluxion injury. This is pretty simple. I think even tribal witch doctors in Afghanistan could figure this out. Were these real doctors? Could they be space aliens?
6072363 tn?1378942693 Hi there! I can't tell you how helpful this community has been for me on my crazy journey. I had my decompression surgery on April 21st and spent 4 days in the hospital. I already feel better than I did before my surgery. I have only had a couple of bad headache days! Before the headaches were constant, day in, day out. Life was miserable. So that alone makes me consider my surgery a "Success".
Avatar n tn A pulsing, burning sensation in the muscle, as well as ocassional tingling in the fingers. Depending on how I have my arm, the pain will diminish to very low, or become very bad. A few friends of mine say it is stress, as every time it comes up I seem to have a driver's exam, or something bad happens. Please help? Also, I have been using a PC for 10 years, and I am an analyst right now.
Avatar f tn One person wrote that her lymph nodes in her leg were sore as well. Mine often are too! I chalked it up to an old muscle injury but maybe the two are related. I need to go out and buy another bra with no underwire...threw mine out. I thought (stupidly) that I wouldn't need them anymore. If the problem is lymph nodes, what can I do to clear them ?

Avatar f tn I have woken up at night with my shoulder frozen and it takes a couple hrs to work it loose. My muscles spasm in my left arm and shoulder. I don't often have sharp pain, but it always burns. My fingers go numb sometimes, I have a searing shock-like pain from my left pinkie up to my armpit and sometimes from my shoulder down to my index and middle fingers. My doctor quit his practice and I went to see a neurosurgeon who said my mri was so poor he couldn't tell anything.
211940 tn?1267884866 About 1 year ago I began having pain in my right upper arm, between the shoulder and elbow, about mid arm where the biceps brachii muscle or brachialis muscle is. I went to my Primary Physician who said it was a torn brachialis muscle. Since I was working at a 2nd job, I thought it might be job related so I went through the whole Workman's Comp issue. They sent me to 4 doctors who did nothing for me, finally the case was settled and my lawyer got most of the money, but I still have the pain.
1896537 tn?1381903609 You need to start out VERY slowly. For example, exercises are often sectioned off in repetitions and sets. The average rate is ten repetitions X three sets with a short rest between each set. PwMS are likely to be better off starting with ten repetitions X (up to) ten sets with a substantially longer recovery time between each set. THIS IS IMPORTANT: If you push to the point of discomfort (and heaven forbid! beyond that) you will likely set your progress in a backwards direction.
Avatar n tn On October 23rd, after moving extremely heavy furniture I began experiencing severe pain in the (L) shoulder (like a continuous charlie horse is the best way I can describe it), arm with an INTENSE tingling sensation in my (L) thumb and index finger (feels like if I looked at my arm it would be vibrating). I felt that I had injured the rotator cuff. Since that time the pain has gone from continuous to intermittent, with the use of physical therapy and cervical traction. The Ortho.
Avatar f tn Have you had any past injuries that might cause this? How often are you stretching? Try some good stretching exercises regularly to see if that helps, if not- it sounds like you should get to the doctor to have them take a closer look at what the cause of this might be.
Avatar n tn Im totally confused at this diagnosis because how would that effect my arm, neck, shoulder? Anyways, the more I read and research the more I strongly feel that I have a pinched nerve. Can that effect my face as well? I have no drooping, etc... and my CT scan came back normal. Should I demand an MRI? Any help is greatly appreciated. They have me on Predisone and ibuprofen. The numbness is still coming and going and now my muscles in my left arm are sore. Any help appreciated!!
Avatar n tn And it is always more painful when I lay down and when I wake up in the morning. I am going to try doing some arm and neck exercises since I don't know what else to do at this point. I will let you know if this helps and if you find something that helps, please let me know. ***@**** Thank you!
Avatar f tn Just when I decided to keep track of how often it happened, it stopped. I didn't have another for about a year to year and a half. A few months ago it started again. It's progressively getting worse. It used to be just my arms, then the back of my neck started tightening along with the arm pain, and the last one I had last night is when I felt the tightening in my chest. I was very worried and thought about going to the ER. I have a Dr.s appt.
Avatar n tn Hi all, glad to hear that there are so many of you suffering from the same symptoms that I have. I often get these feelings, sometimes two or three times in a day, although the pains in the arm and chest aren't always there, I always feel as though I am on edge and that something bad is going to happen to me. I have been suffering from these symptoms for close on 4 years and nothing has changed, they haven't got better and thet haven't got worse.
Avatar f tn Muscle aches from overuse and fibromyalgia often respond well to massage. Gentle stretching exercises after a long rest period are also helpful. Yoga and meditation are excellent ways to help you sleep and relax. If your condition persists, it would be best to see your doctor for proper management such as prescription medication, physical therapy referral, or referral to a specialized pain clinic. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn 1 - how reliable is EMG testing in detecting muscle denervation (ALS is my fear, in particular)? 2 - if the EMG on the left arm was completely clean, can I rest assured that whatever soreness and/or fatigue I am feeling in that arm now is either perceived, or due to some other cause? Thank you again for taking the time to answer this.
Avatar n tn Hi, i have multiple (four herniated) disks in my lower back,, but for about the last six months my upper back.. between my shoulder blades has been killing me.. An xray should "some swelling",, but they kinda blew that off",, the MRI showed nothing... For the past two months every so often,, my arm hurts and at times my hands tingle.. Now for the past month my jaw and neck have a burning pain and now a "tight" pain,, that is getting more frequent.
Avatar m tn When I've played my guitar for a while, my arm and hand become temporary paralyzed. My fingers on my left hand retract into a claw position and pain radiates in the center of my arm. I can't move my hand, fingers, or arm for a few minutes. This has been happening frequently for the last 2-3 years. I've played guitar most of my life so I'm a bit baffled as to why this is occurring. Anyone know what this is?
Avatar n tn For the last 3 months (since April 2005), I've developed a stabbing pain in my left bicep when my arm is in certain positions. The pain is located deep within my arm in the center of my upper arm and is very intense (i.e., level 8-10) as if a knife was plunged into the center of my bicep. When the pain happens, I have to use my right arm to pick up the left arm and move it into a neutral position down and in front of me.
162489 tn?1189759431 the other name was pelvic girdle are the symptoms The pain is often one sided and may be concentrated in the buttock area. It may appear to jump from side to side or be accompanied by a general back pain or Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD). It can send shooting pains into your buttocks or down the back of your legs. If the pain is accompanied by pins and needles or numbness and extends further than your knee, it may be sciatica rather than PGP. You may also have pain in your hips.
Avatar n tn Sometimes feels like my chest is on fire. and the left arm is often very fatigued after an episode. Iv been refered to a Neurologist; they are certain that there is a nerve being pinched somewhere. Unfortunately i am uninsured at this time and am unable to afford a neurologist. The fact the the heart has been ruled out helps me feel as though my life is not at risk everytime i get these pains....
Avatar n tn (I do have an anxiety issue and wonder how much of this is actually physical and how much is psychological.). I can finally pop my left ear on occasion by plugging, blowing, and wiggling my jaw. But it seems to close right back up and I feel the ear squeeze pain. I still have that weird sensation in my head and my arm. I can also still feel it under my eye, but that symptom is better.
Avatar f tn You don't say exactly what type of pain you are having at this point. There is often intermittant pain due to the nerves being cut but actual pain from the incision should be long gone by now. Did you follow an exercise program of stretching, etc. as soon as recommended after surgery? The American Cancer Soc. has an excellent video of exercises to do after surgery to restore normal range of motion.
Avatar n tn I would suggest you to follow up with an expert physiotherapist for proper exercises. Treatment begins with physical therapy and neck stretching exercises and also abdominal breathing, posture correction, and nerve glides, carried out on a daily basis. Gentle, slow movements and exercises are stressed as the primary treatment. Non surgical forms of treatment should always be tried first.
11079760 tn?1483389730 however, the most challenging problems continue with my dominant hand and arm. For those Dx'd, how do you know which symptoms are permanent and which will subside as the activity stops? I'm starting an IV Infusion this week - when that is done, are any remaining symptoms permanent? Thanks.
