can anyone help me?
Hi I Hope I'm ok posting here.. I've never been on this forum before and was just hoping somebody can help.. Basically I go to the gym regularly and on Monday night did a tone class, by the end I couldn't actually feel my legs they didn't hurt or anything just went really weak and I struggled to get down the stairs at the gym... Ever since then I have been in agony.. Like pain I have never felt before from exercising and I've had personal training sessions before that were harder than the class I did but not been this bad. I'm not just talking stiff or sore muscles I mean I feel like someone's ripped my muscles out or stabbed me in the front of my thighs!! Would anybody know why I am in so much pain this just doesn't feel like normal muscle pain.. I can barely move for fear of the pain! What could I do to help relieve it? I have tried paracetamol and ibuprofen and they don't do a thing! Please can someone help?? Its been 2 days since the class and the pain hasn't eased at all :( Thank you for reading!
I done exactly the same a few years ago but at first I could 'manage'.Then we went to new York and I was in agony.I couldn't walk or if I tried to I was in so much pain.Mine was a pull/tear quadriceps which is in the front of the thigh.
So we went to the chemist and they advised me to wear elastic wrap.I wore the wrapping for 2 weeks before I could walk without any pain.I have to be very careful now as any pull and I can feel it.
So my advice is to bandage it up and go to the dr's so he can tell you what to do.:)
You should rest,ice,compression,elevation.
Thank you for your reply
That sounds exactly the same.. I think doctors is the best bet tomorrow if Im no better. What did you use exactly? Just normal bandages or are they especially made for muscle trauma? Sorry to sound so daft lol
You need some crepe bandage as it has elastic in it so you can stretch it tight.
If you haven't got any just wrap it as tight as poss with any material until you see dr.
I am not a medical person so am only going on my experience.:) I'm sure one of the many nurses we have on Mini's could help you.:)
That's a great help thank you so much I'll give it a try :)
