Sore muscles heat or ice

Common Questions and Answers about Sore muscles heat or ice


Avatar n tn You might try a moist heat wrap. For your jaw, you might also try ice. Do you have a night guard or flat planed splint to try to protect your teeth or jaw joint? And try relaxing your face muscles, letting your jaw go slack and maybe even some massaging. You might even get the doc to prescribe for short term use if it is really bad some valium to help with the tension. I have very bad TMJ problems, with arthritis in my jaws. I use a flat planed splint at night.
219373 tn?1274925034 ) Today I have ironed my socks twice, the heat feels good but fades quickly fades. Yes it feels cold; ice cold. It's like wearing blocks of ice for shoes but they don't feel warm like some people experience, rather, my socks sometimes feels damp from the extent of the cold. I do not have MS (please God), I am only 25. The cold is so ridiculous I came on goggle and typed 'why do my feet feel so cold' thats how I came across this board. Good luck to everyone with the same affliction.
Avatar n tn There is no change in color or appearance. Others can locate the spot by the heat. The hot spot is always on the front of my left leg. The last few days it has been just to the left of the shin. I am 68, active, healthy, Hot spots come while I am sitting in a car, while walking briskly, while lying in bed and so on. Loney, thanks for your input. I hope this is that simple. At nearly 69 years old, little things may announce something lurking for me.
Avatar f tn About a week and a half ago I was doing cartwheels in the yard with the kids. Ever since then my right hip has been extremely sore. It hurts to move or to even touch it. What could be causing this?
Avatar n tn Like you my neck muscles, lowerback, and my ribs are hurting. From all the muscles consricting. The small of my back is what I felt first and knew something was wrong. For the past few weeks I have had Vertigo. This is when I realized the connection in now and 4 years ago. With a temp of 103. + I was admitted to the hospital (4 years ago) for the first time in my (now42) life.
Avatar n tn I did this and the heat was gone. after a month or so it has returned but I do the backswing and it's gone.
Avatar f tn What i found that worked for me, with no more creams, steriod injections, ice, and insane scratching is acupuncture, chiropractic, and if you can stand the heat, Bikram yoga. My life is soooo much better now. Gabapentin capsules made me gain 15 pounds, and they have undesirable side effects. I have had to get off the expressway, and run into the gas station to get ice from the pop machine to rub on my arms, becasue the itching was so intense and relentless.
Avatar f tn The pain is on the inside of the elbow with an occasional mild pain on the back side. I am not noticing any joint swelling or redness. I have tried ice yet does nothing.
1523516 tn?1330047857 I can not exercise at all, run, play with my grand kids much, or do much that would use my muscles more than walking. If I do, I hurt so bad, especially at night and can't sleep. My whole body hurts and it feels like every muscle aches like the flu. I move very slow and need to just do nothing the day or two after. As time goes on, I am getting worse and am terrified that I will end up in a wheel chair. I am lucky that I have a wonderful understanding husband.
Avatar f tn Alternate heat and ice 20 minutes at a time... Moist heat is the best, like a flax seed bag, so if you have to go purchase a heating pad, look for the one that says moist heat. Also, you can purchase a soft cervical collar from the pharmacy for only a few buck wear it whenever you are not laying down. It'll help the muscles to relax. When the pain calms down some try stretching it gently using only 2 fingers for pressure.
Avatar f tn When you can rest it and support your neck - thus resting the muscles, possibly ligaments or tendons also that you most likely strained. You may use a heat rub that should help it feel better - but don't apply heat when you have the heat rub on. A gentle massage can help too, emphasis on gentle. Neck strains heal relatively quickly but don't expect it to happen over night - 2-3 days at most. If it continues longer than that or intensifies than please consult your medical provider.
789820 tn?1315452113 I have diagnosed with Costochondritis back in April or May..I dont really remember at this point. but the pain is progressively getting worse. just last friday, while at work. I was standing at the computer and felt a very painful, severe chest pain in the left side of my chest. It radiated all up my chest and into the top of my left arm. It lasted for just a couple seconds and than happened again. I had to sit down because the pain was unbearable.
Avatar n tn I have had herpes before, but with this pain I don't get any rash or blisters, just such sore skin. I also can't sit on the toilet especially if its cold. It sounds like if you are run down or stressed the pain comes. Not sure what to do about it though.
Avatar n tn 3 days ago I woke up without the bump, but throughout the day the area around the left side of my vagina became increasingly sore. It wasnt till i came home that i took a look at it. Its a hard pea-sized bump under my skin, and can be pushed around a bit. I was thinking it was a cyst, but is it normal for it to develop within 8 hours? I normally have a bit of vaginal discharge, but it seems to have increased the past few days. Any ideas for what it might be?
773755 tn?1328123377 i get SORE OVERHEATED muscles - esp in my hands say after typing or mixing batter - i then have to stop and bathe them in water with a bit of ice in it. good for relief, sounds obvious but i only recently discovered it. i wonder how very icy water would go. it seems the energy-producing process in the muscle cells produce more heat than energy - and that the byproducts of this cause my immune system to flare up on its account. anyway - anyone else, share your story please!
Avatar n tn It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair? It is located in the area where I shave daily. Any advice would be very appreciated!
Avatar n tn My leg pain is always there, however, its severity is on and off. It's never extreme, such as inability to get out of bed or not go to work. However, at times it's distressing resulting in inability to exercise at gym or do various physical activities fully. I am 25 years old and sports has always been a somewhat large part of my life. I have a gym membership for 10 years, I play basketball, tennis, soccer and other sports recreationally.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure how long recovery time is but I assume that it is atleast 6 weeks(the usual time people are in a cast for broken bones)You may have to go back to the doctor and get a note to keep you off work for a short time so you can do more ice and heat and rest. Does your work give paid disibillity for medical problems (not on the job injury)? Good luck with your healing process.
Avatar f tn I've had stomach pains since. If I put a heat pad on my stomach the pain goes away. Are my muscles just sore, or is there a problem?
Avatar n tn But then, last Sunday, my eyes had gone back to their previous state, of being very red and sore. I hadn't worn any make-up or used any products on or near my eyes at all on Sunday, so I'm confused as to what caused it to return. On Monday and Tuesday, several people commented on the state of my eyes, especially the right one, which seemed to be in a worse condition.
Avatar n tn HI, Just wondering, I've seemed to have a horrible allergic reaction to either Neutrogena face wash OR Rosasol (perscription for Rosacea). So bad in fact that I needed to go to the emergency room yesterday morning. My skin, from my chin to my eye brows is burning, red, itchy and my face has swelled like crazy, especially around my eyes. So, my question is this... I was just RX Rosasol last week, used it all last week with no problems.

Avatar n tn When I go to other peoples houses I see them too, they say I don't know what the he.. is going on or why their here or where their coming from. Even when I go out to different stores or restaurants I see them too, I know they were already there, are you sure that's not what it is?? They seem to be a lil of an epidemic right now for some odd reason. That's why I even came across this site, I was look'n to see how to get rid of them and spread the word.
Avatar n tn 15 minutes, got into bed with a heating pad and now my pain is worse. What should I be using, heat or ice, or atlernating? Also, should I be concerned about pneumonia or any other lung issues although I do not have any respiratory symptoms? How long should I wait to see a physician if the symptoms persist?
Avatar n tn Any pain in the leg? Any trouble urinating? Have you tried any OTC things for the pain? Ice, heat, ibuprofen, Tylenol? Do they give you any relief? I think if you give a little more information you may get some better suggestions.
Avatar m tn Then see a doctor. In the mean time try ice 10 min. every hour OR heat the same way OR alternate ice and heat if that works better. Take ibeprophen like Advil -as directed -if you are able to take that. Best wishes for a easy recovery.
535882 tn?1396580285 In general, for bruising (or contusions in medical terminology) we recommend direct application of ice or cold compresses in the first 48-72 hours. Ice or cold compresses can be applied for 20-25 minutes at time and repeat as necessary. Additional recommendations for this time of injury include: some rest (avoiding heavy lifting, extreme exertion) but also stay active--i.e. walking can help loosen up tight muscles.
Avatar f tn To get some relief you can try massaging the sore muscles. You have to press on muscles of your face to look for sore points. Then massage these points with short strokes. To massage the masseter muscles on each side of your jaw, place your thumb inside your mouth and squeeze the thick muscle in your cheek with your fingers. To massage the jaw muscles inside your mouth, use your index finger to probe and massage these spots. Massaging the muscles does not help every one.
