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.

Hi, my shoulder and neck muscles have been aching pretty badly for a while now, probably because my sleeping positions and because I sit in front of my computer for most of the day. I wanted to know how I can help soothe this pain. I have this ‘ice hot’ cream/lotion that I can apply to it, but it only helps temporarily. I feel really unhealthy, so if there’s anything I can eat/stay away from or some sort of exercise I can do to help this matter, that would help a lot! Thanks!!!
Stretch after you wake up. Or you could just change your sleeping position. Usually for me it goes away by itself.

I believe I pulled muscle when I was running. The pain is in the arch of my foot and everytime I walk or stand I just feel a pain. I wanna try some ways to take care it at home before I go to a doctor.
When you pull a muscle there really isn’t much you can do, it just takes time to heal. You just need to take it easy, but don’t baby it. If you baby it, it could possibly make the injury worse then it originally was. For example, do some stretches and stretch out that muscle. But defiantly go to the doctor to get it looked at. Hope this helped -Mila

My upper arms are hurting really bad. Mostly bone pain but some muscle soreness. Have taken strong pain medication and nothing is helping.
you haven’t specified your age…still..the pain could be due to spondylotic changes…can you lift your arms upwards…is there any difficulty…if yes then it could be ?frozen shoulder too…or the pain could be due to intense strain…..if you are above 35yrs then get your blood pressure checked…good luck

I’ve just started up running and I’ve been running for about four weeks. After every run, I tend to have a lot of pain from muscle soreness. It’s not as bad as it was in the beginning, but I still wouldn’t mind preventing it in some way. A friend of mine recommended stretching before and after running, but this really only alleviates the pain for a few minutes. What else can I do to prevent soreness?
You need to prevent the soreness while you are running. You are probably holding your muscles too tight and creating tension. You need to learn how to keep your body relaxed while running. I used to have this problem too. I was always sore after running and I keep stretching and stretching, but I would still feel stiff and sore. Now I practice being relaxed while running and I rarely stretch any more.
I hope this works for you too.

Since last 3 months, I have been teaching regular 5 periods in a college. For this, I have to prepare till late night. I sleep 6 hours in night and one hour in daytime.
I have to work in very much pressure. I am suffering from back pain and headache. Headache is temporary but the back pain is regular. The pain is not so severe but increasing everyday. How can I get rid of it? Please suggest me, I will really appreciate your answer.
Keep yourself well hydrated and eat well balanced meals and health snacks first of all. You then may want to incorporate some Yoga stretching exercises into your daily routine. Yoga helps to relax and provide strength to tired and or weak muscles. I have included a link that provides some good initial exercises that happen to be easy to.

It’s not the muscle that’s in pain, but more in the center bone or chest cavity area. There’s a sharp pain whenever i breathe in or when i flex/stretch my chest out. I really can’t do anything under this condition, and I’m pretty sure it didn’t come from working out either, cause I’ve been lifting weights for a good three years and have never felt this pain before.
I was wondering if anyone can help me out. It’s been bothering me for a two whole day now.
There are many conditions that you may have but to get a correct diagnosis be sure to contact a doctor. I have a condition like this but it happens randomly and not when I flex or stretch my chest. It is called costochondritis, the inflammation in the rib cage. It is not severe or life threatening but it is a pain in the butt. So, as I said you may have Myositis, Fibromyalgia, TBCWP or Transitory Benign Chest Wall Pain. To verify, is it right near the middle of your chest, that little line between like a trench running down the middle of your chest? Tell me anything else! Thanks. Please make me best answer and read my name.

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.
