Re: Why do my muscles get so tight
if the aleeve actually made a difference then at least part of your problem is inflammation based since that is what aleeve works on,inflammation. considering you have been very active all your life there could be some underlying 'injuries" or possible issues within your spine too. it is wear and tear stuff,ya know? i too was very active and just went thru six seperate surgeries on all my wear and tear crap since 2001. my knees and my c spine(herniation and ongoing deterioration) and my latest last year,rotator cuff repair.
there just "could' be something more underlying in all this or it could just be the age thing along wioth all the things you have done to your body over the years and all the stuff you used to be able to just 'blow off'? i am only 47 and at age 40,everything i did to myself as far as inury goes,all kind of hit me out of nowhere at age 40. if this stuff persists,i would seek out your primarys help in trying to find the source of your muscle issues. but it could be age hon. just watch for any other strange or odd symptoms and make notes of them so when you do see your doc,you can tell him whats been going on. it can help with arriving at certain Dxes. goodluck and please keep us posted. **
