Five years ago I pushed myself too hard doing leg exercises and injured my calves. I began having mild discomfort in my calves after about five minutes of light exertion, such as ordinary walking.
After many doctor visits, physical therapy visits, and test (such as x-rays), doctors were baffled. One day I tried massaging my calves and was stunned when this actually helped. I've continued massaging as a part of my daily stretch routine, and have been free of pain ever since.
Back in June I pushed myself too hard doing push-ups and injured my arms. Ever since then I've been having mild discomfort in my hands, wrists, forearms, and right tricep after about five minutes of light exertion, such as writing or typing (I'm feeling it as I type this).
I've tried massaging my arms the same way I've been massaging my legs but it's not helping.
Does anyone know anything about this kind of injury or how to treat it?View Thread
hello, I'm incarcerated in Utah County Jail. My daughter is 4 years old and used to being with me every minute of every day that I am not working. She is having a very hard time emotionally with me being away. I am wondering if anyone has any advice. She has never had accidents before and now has regressed a lot. She is now in diapers, it breaks my heart I want to help her. Unfortunately I will be away for a few more months.View Thread
