I think I had a miscarriage I was only 3 weeks but I didn’t know if I was pregnant but I started spotting two days ago and then yesterday I started getting bad abdominal pain and started feeling shaky and ever since yesterday IV been bleeding a lot and a lot if blood clots have been coming out. Did I really have a miscarriage and the pain is still there is that normal?
We don’t know if you had a miscarriage. This could be normal menstrual cramps. The cramps are caused by contractions of the uterus before and during your period. The contractions cause the uterus to press against blood vessels which briefly cuts off the oxygen supply to the muscle tissue of the uterus, which is what caused the pain.
Some things you can do are to avoid salt, caffeine, smoking and alcohol which can all make them worse. Rest when you need to. Massage your back and abdomen. Use a heating pad or hot water bottle to apply heat or take a warm bath or shower – heat can often relieve the cramps. And get more exercise as a general rule. Women who exercise regularly tend to have less trouble with cramps.

If you think you did have a miscarriage you should probably check with your doctor.

Have already seen urologist, psa test clean, ultra sound clean, went through 60 days of ciproflaxocin, I’ve always had back issues but don’t want to confuse the two if I’m missing the signs of pain and assuming there not just spinal issues ….side note exray on spine shows t1 & 2 out of alignment along with lower three vertebrae and currently seeing chiropractor (7-8 times) just not seeing relief of pain & muscle spasms
When turning and tossing in bed and the sides of your back and middle are hurting is becuase of the stiffness your body probably endure. Masage would do good and for the prostate issue, well what i know is that you probably feel like going to the bathroom often but you come out empty and if thats the case i would inssit for you to see your doctor.

I usually workout about 4 times a week, but yesterday it was my first workout in about 8 days or so, i did alot of abs, shoulders and biceps and legs too. But my muscles are hurting like hell. Is it bad to workout while this ache is goin on ? if not should i just have some muscle milk during the pain?
Yes, it is a bad idea to work out the part of the body that is aching from a day after workout. The reason why your body aches in the first place is because you worked those muscles well and now they need some down time to heal up. Wait until the pain is almost gone or completely gone to workout those muscles again.

I have been having muscle and tendon pains now for 4 days. I also have sore feeling testicles. The pain in my muscles and tendons doesn’t feel like it is going away but it feels the same as when it started. I haven’t taken my temp yet.
you don’t say what you are doing when the pain starts were you doing any strenuous activity? sounds like you may have caused a stress injury done any heavy lifting? do the right thing have a chat with your GP

For some reason, every once in a while I get pain in my lower rib cages for some reason. It hurts when i talk, or when I try to flex my abdominal muscles. The days before theses pains i usually go through a lot of exercise such as running, could this be the cause? Should i go to the doctor or will it go away on its own?
The pain could be from costochondritis– an injury to the rib cartilage. Patients often come into the ER with it. You can get it in the cartilage in the sternum or the sides of your ribs. Can happen during lifting something. If this is the cause the pain and injury will get better but try not to reinjure it. Try a rib belt if you can get ahold of one to see if the rib support helps.

So its not really a strong pain, its more of a nagging pain/soreness that I am experiencing under my left tricep muscle and deltoid. It’s not strong enough to stop me from working out, but only happens when I am working out. I lift 6 days a week, 2 hours a day. It doesn’t feel like its the muscle itself, but rather under the muscle, its weird.
