Bruised/Soreness Feeling All Over Body

Hello,

For the past couple of weeks, certain places on my body have been feeling bruised/sore to the touch. Those places are my hands, upper arms, upper thighs and feets. The pain/soreness comes and goes and when I press on these areas...it just feels like one giant bruise. Unfortunately, I don't eat healthy and have a high salt and sugar intake. I'm not sure if this is my body's way of telling me to eat healthier? However, it's getting to the point where I feel this everyday and would like to get it taken care of.

Any advice is very appreciated.

Re: Bruised/Soreness Feeling All Over Body

These are symptoms which I have suffered from myself. Generally after a virus like Flu or a cold.
I have even found it painful to brush my hair as the top of my head has been so sore.
You could have a Virus of some sort, also if I was you I would cut down or out on salt/sugar and see what happens.
I cut sugar in all forms from my diet some months ago and soon after noticed a difference in my health (good), I have since introduced sugar back on a much smaller scale and still feel better for it. Salt I only have occasionally.
It could still be something else and if you are worried, see your Dr. Solofelix.

Re: Bruised/Soreness Feeling All Over Body

Thanks for the reply. I will try to cut the salt and sugar and see what happens. I was also sick before this happened and I am actually still suffering from the remnants of a cold the virus thing makes sense. Sorry to ask but what is Dr. Solofelix?

Dr = Doctor/General Practitioner.

Yes I had no idea that your user name was Solofelix. Sorry about that.

Any other advice you can give for me?

Re: Bruised/Soreness Feeling All Over Body

It could help you to increase your intake of water. A high sodium diet like you mentioned could cause a level of dehydration which in turn can lower your body's capacity to carry oxygen to your muscles. Try 6-8 tall glasses of cool (not cold) water per day for a while and see how you feel.

Good luck and good health!

Thank you for the advice....I appreciate it.

Should I schedule an appointment with my chiropractor or regular Dr??? I'm not sure if this is even back related but I've also had issues with the back in the past.

I'm glad I could be of help FrankieD80

A chiropractic adjustment can probably help your problem, at the same time your Chiropractor may actually refer you to go see your family doctor if needed.

Cheers
