When everything is functioning well with the muscular system – life’s good.
However, with so many functions to process and the need for both your brain and your muscles to work well and in harmony, sometimes things can go wrong.
The first sign that something is not right in your body is muscle pain.
Sometimes we know exactly why we feel it.
For example, if you have done a very rigorous session in the gym, like a leg day or run a marathon, then muscular pain is probably from a build up of lactic acid in the muscles.
But sometimes muscle pain can signal one of many disorders
This can be as simple as a sprain, strain or cramping or could point to more serious issues like Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s Disease or Multiple Sclerosis.
If your mucle pain is chronic, then the best place to start is a visit to your GP.
If the pain you feel comes hand in hand with trouble breathing, muscle weakness, dizziness, a stiff neck or a high fever, then that GP visit needs to happen sooner rather than later by calling 000.
Muscle pain is most often from minor injuries, muscle knots or from stress or due to exercise and it usually fixes itself in a matter of days.
Maybe it requires a remedial massage or two or a simple home treatment such as R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation) and soon you’ll be right as rain.
