Daily Health Tips : What Do I Take For Stiff Muscles?

Q: What can I take for stiff muscles?

A: Stiff, sore or aching muscles can occur anywhere in the body and may be due to any number of conditions:

• Stress (remember that uncomfortable feeling of your muscles all bunched up?)
• Over-use of the muscle(s) (like when you decide to burn up for all the calories you ate during the festive season in one work-out session :D or even making good on your New Year’s resolution to get more activity and then having your ‘lazy’ muscles complain)

Aching or stiff muscles must be taken care of so that they do not become stiffer, weaker or indeed, leave you open to further injuries.
What can help? Generally, increasing blood flow to the muscles involved helps reduce stiffness and improve flexibility. Examples of activities that can lead to this, include:

A good massage never hurt. If you can afford it, give yourself a spa treat and relax under the magical hands of a masseuse and feel the pains, stiffness and soreness flooooaaaat away :)

A warm shower may not go amiss too. Just feel the muscles relax under a steady spray of warm water :) A heating pad or hot water bottle can also work some magic.

Nice, gentle stretches can also help ‘iron’ out the kinks in the muscles. Be sure to get some pain relief with analgesics, if pain is persistent.
Good night, people :D

Daily Health Tips : Does This Terrible Tummy Ache Mean I Am Miscarrying?

Q: Doctor, l missed my period for five days and exactly on the fifth day in the morning l had a terrible stomach ache which latter lead to bleeding and that was how l lost the pregnancy. Please, what could be the cause? Thank you.

A: Interesting question! Did you confirm your pregnancy before this episode of bleeding? Well, if you did and indeed this was a miscarriage, don’t be too hard on yourself. Sometimes, these early miscarriages is nature’s way of ‘removing’ babies that may not have survived for long. Remember that this does not mean that you cannot conceive and have a healthy baby again. You absolutely can!
For those who wondered, it is possible to confirm pregnancy as early as the first day of your missed period, because by then, technically, the person would have been at least 2 weeks pregnant.

I had discussed miscarriage and causes in a previous post. Please click on this link to read more…including how soon you can also start trying for another baby.

http://chatwithdrketch.com/2014/10/09/daily-health-tips-why-did-my-wife-miscarry/

Remember that the pregnancy test may read positive for a few weeks even after the miscarriage. I’m not sure you’ve seen a doctor in all this. Be sure to see your doctor to help you through this period and indeed confirm that the pregnancy no longer exists.

Have a good night, people :D
