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.

Yesterday, I added a new exercise to my workout plan: planks. Because I had never done these before, I wasn’t sure how physically demanding they were, but I did a couple of sets of them anyways.
This morning, I woke up with my entire core and my thighs all sore. I have an event to attend later tonight and it would be great if I could attend it pain-free.
What can I do to treat this muscle ache?
a couple of ibuprofen and a hot shower just before you go to your event should get you through.
Try to do some gently stretches so you don’t stiffen up too much.

I go to the gym only once per week. My muscles are in pain every time I visit the gym. Based on what I read, when muscles are at pain it means that they are growing. So does it means my muscles grow even I visit the gym only once a week?
Sure, you can definitely see results over time, but if your only going once, I suggest doing a full body workout. The thing about a full body workout is that you need to pay extra care to your nutrition for max recovery with a max workout. Increase your protein and carb amount for that day you exercise, especially directly after. I recommend a protein shake with cereal (a lot of whole grains) within an hour. Creatine can also speed up recovery. By pain, I’m assuming your talking about the soreness which is natural if your doing a workout your not used to.
If your shooting for fast results, your going to spread it over a week and do like 3-5 workouts per week or more. Not that what your doing is no good, it’s just that it is guaranteed to take you much longer to see results. Another thing is change the exercises you do each week to avoid a plateau.
If you don’t like going to the gym, consider P90x which is the best home workout guide on the market. I’m on my second round of it and the results I got the first round were pretty damn good. It’s an hour a day though, which is different from what you do now and it WILL make you sore after most workouts. But like I said, much faster course, only 90 days.

Im 33 weeks along and I dont * think * that Ive had any braxton hicks or contractions but Im not totally sure. Sometimes when I get up at night to go to the bathroom I have a shooting pain real low in my pelvis when I get up. Is this a contraction or just muscle stetching/pain?
In general, would a braxton hicks contraction but low or high? How do you know if you have one?
A braxton hicks contraction are normally painless. The tummy tightens and they are erratic. Usually lasting no longer than 30 seconds. With my first preg. I didnt know I was having them but when I went for my exam at 37 weeks they said I had to be aving some kind of contraction since I was dialated to 3. With preg. number 2 and 3 I had a lot more (maybe its just cause I knew what to look for) Your pain doesnt sound like a contraction. I think it really depends on where your baby is sitting on if they are low or high, and every preg. is different. With my last preg. I only had contractions on my lower tummy area through the whole labor/delivery, but with my first they were all over my belly. When your tummy gets really tight (kind of feels like your baby is surfacing) that is a braxton hick contraction.

It’s probably just ligament pains. I got them everywhere in my stomach when I was pregnant.
