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.
You will find more information here.
If you think you did have a miscarriage you should probably check with your doctor.

4 months ago I strained my leg and hip muscles that happened at work. The pain gone but today I felt the same pain. I have a hard time lifting my leg and if I put pressure into it I’ll suffer hip pain. It’s very painful. It’s not sciatic pains, is this normal?
RICE is the standard treatment protocol for mild to moderate muscle strains.
Rest. Avoid putting weight on the hip. Your doctor may suggest using crutches for the first day or two after the injury.
Ice. Gently massage the area with ice to help decrease swelling.
Compression. Compression shorts or a wrap bandage may be helpful.
If you want to know more about bone health and related injuries, there are articles that I bumped into at http://www.strykerhipreplacementrecall.net/ that may be of great help to you.

I’m 15 years old and I’m known for having severe menstrual cramps, but i haven’t had upper abdominal pain before. Is this normal? I woke up at 3:30 in the morning with upper abdominal cramps and haven’t been able to fall back asleep.
It could be normal, especially if you’re known for severe menstrual cramps. However, if this persists, then you may have an inflammation of the pancreas. You’d have to give more information though (general location of the pain; is it a sharp pain or a deeper, throbbing pain/ pain of the muscles?).

After my leg falls asleep I don’t experience a tingly sensation but an extreme pain as the feeling returns to my leg. Every time the feeling begins to return to my leg I get extreme, immobilizing pain. If I move one muscle then a wave of pain and muscle tension shoots through me before everything gradually fades and returns to normal. I usually just grit my teeth and take deep breaths and try not to move while the feeling is returning. Is it normal for the pain to be this bad?
I have that sometimes. I think you’re fine, but if it continues I would go to the doctor.

Does anyone know why a testicle would rise when i take a deep breath, or tighten my stomach muscles? I feel no pain or discomfort, and it goes back to normal when i relax the muscles.
It’s supposed to. If you follow all the connective tissues in your body, you would see the why.

I have had pain in my ovaries for maybe about two weeks. It feels like if you had over streched you abdominal muscles but this pain is more inside. Has any one ever exerienced this same feeling and is it normal? My aunt said that it might be a sign that Im pregnant.
You should get this checked out….You might have an ovarian cyst. I don’t think that you’re pregnant. I’ve never heard of that as a symptom of pregnancy.

i recently had one of my wisdom teeth extracted, and ever since then have had severe pain around the surrounding molars. Iea had neck and shoulder muscle pain as well incresed pain in the jaw when i open my mouth wide. My jaw also makes a small clicking noise. is this normal recovery pain? its been 5 days.
They must have had trouble getting the tooth out. Your muscle and jaw pain are due to the weight they put on your jaw during the extraction. Take some ibuprofen (advil, aleive, ect).

its 2 day that i have started bodybuilding and some of my muscles have started to pain
is it normal? whats the cause of it? what is happening and what should i do?
Its perfectly normal after a hard workout.
Its your muscles calming doen after being worked. They’ll grow a bit (unnoticeable in 1 day).
Just take a day off and it’ll fix itself.
Keep in mind that ur not supposed to work out every day or gains will be reduced. Leave a day inbetween to let musle recover even if they dont hurt.
