My mom is 65 years old and a little overweight. She says that her right calf muscle hurt – she feels warmth and heat when she stands. She has been experiencing this problem since Saturday (February 17, 2013). Should she be concerned and seek medical attention immediately or see a Doctor in the morning.

A common cause of calf pain is poor circulation.
However it can be caused by overuse, or even hardening of
Your mom is at the age where it might not be a bad
idea to have a doctor check it, just to be safe.

Everyone says to build up quad muscles in order to avoid knee pain, but how strong is strong? Is there a guide of, say, body weight vs how much you can left during a quad extension?
How strong, you say? As strong as it takes to not have pain. I would stay away from the quad extensions and go with the leg press machine. But what do I know, I’ve only had three knee surgeries and hundreds of hours of physical therapy. BTW, my knees don’t hurt ever!

My dad is currently on blood pressure medicine and cholesterol medicine. He recently pulled something in his back and can verily walk. Would it affect him if he was to take a muscle relaxer to relieve the pain. He wont go to the doctor for he dont want to miss work. Thanks for any suggestions and comment.
Call your pharmacist and ask them the question, tell them what he is taking for the bp and cholesterol and ask if it would be ok to take the muscle relaxer, give them the name of it and if there would be any interactions.
In the mean time your dad can try either heat from a heating pad and if that doens’t help he could try an ice pack, 10 minutes on 10 minutes off, he should try the ice first to try to alleviate the swelling, heat would be to relax the muscles. But its one or the other, not both ok, depending on which one makes him feel better.
he will have to be rather stationary for awhile to give this time to heal up.

I am a 15 year old, tall, lean, athletic girl. From a young age, I have been experiencing on and off 1-3 minute sharp pains to the upper left side of my chest that really hurt. I have had some problems with my heart in the past too. Suddenly, I feel really tired climbing up stairs even at home, every movement I take I have to breathe really deeply. Apart from that, I’m a healthy, sporty girl.
What’s the cause and problem with the pains? Please help.
You have tight back muscles causing that pain. When they are tight they can press into nerves going around your body to become pains in your rib, chest or heart areas. The muscles are being pinched by your spine so different movements are going to add lots of pressure to the nerves while others can remove pressure to change the pain levels.

Yesterday when I was in the gym I walked on treadmill for 16 mins and ran for 4 mins. Today my calf muscles are really paining. I usually only walk on treadmill. I have never felt the pain next day. Today it is killing me…Any reason why running is painful than walking?
Well usually after training, running or even exercising muscle tend to be used to a certain degree and some muscles and parts of the body may have never been used before and this results in the muscles being sore the next day. It is a form of recovery system for the body. However if it feels abnormal and strange/ extremely painful maybe get it check out however deepening on the situation . .. hope this helps

obviously our muscles are interconnected, but i find it odd that when i stretched my upper shoulders REAL good, my lower back muscles were in pain the next day and other places too. i also had a headache and felt a little ill.

Ever since I started to exercise vigorously (haven’t exercised in many months), I’ve been having random body aches at random times. Sometimes my arms ache. The other day my cheeks were hurting and now my leg muscles hurt.
The pain is sudden and it only lasts for a few seconds. Also I can’t touch surfaces that are too cold or I feel pain. Should I tell my doctor about this? It’s been going on for a couple of weeks.
Sorry to here about how you feel,apply ice for the first 24 – 72 hours of an injury to reduce pain and inflammation. After that, heat often feels more soothing.
