  • Rest. Avoid using your muscle for a few days, especially if movement causes an increase in pain.
  • Ice. Apply ice immediately after injuring your muscle.
  • Compression. To reduce swelling, wrap the affected area with an elastic bandage until swelling comes down.
  • Elevation.

Only way to know for sure is a MRI. In the mean time, RICE. Rest, ice, compression, and exercise.

My leg have felt as though thing Pulsating thetththere is a pulsating feel is soing as though sommethis going upmand down my leg Insometimes feel this in my arm. What is the answer please?


hi pamela.
Throbbing from vascular origin
A vein can produce this sensation because of the increased blood flow to a particular area due to physical activity - this can happened when you jog in the morning or after bodybuilding exercise or any other physical activity. When somebody tackles you during a football game and traumatizes your leg, the swelling can push on the vessels and this can produce a throbbing sensation. A trauma can also produce an abnormal communication between an artery and vein - this is called AV fistula.
Usually throbbing from vascular origin is not a reason to worry. You may visit a general practitioner who will probably examine the blood flow and may even order a test to look at your vessels.
Rarely the cause of throbbing is aneurism which produces a wide pulsatile area - aneurisms are often treated surgically.
  • It is useful to know that common conditions such as deep vein thrombosis, blood clots or peripheral artery disease usually do NOT present with throbbing sensation but usually present with pain and swelling.
Throbbing caused by muscle twitching
Turn off the lights, sit on a chair and use a direct light from a lamp and try to make the light beam horizontal so you can see the throbbing area clearly.
If you see tiny twitches you should know that your throbbing sensation is produced by your muscles.
Conditions causing muscle twitching
Although muscle twitches are often idiopathic or as a result of muscle hyperactivity or hyperexcitability because you had too much coffee or you had a heavy exercise earlier, muscle twitches can be a symptom of a serious medical conditions.
B12 deficiency. This is found especially in alcoholics or vegetarians. Muscle twitching is not an early symptom, usually B12 deficiency presents with anemia and decreased or altered sensation.
Multiple Sclerosis. Usually presents with pain behind one eye. Muscle twitching is a common symptom.
infection and Amyotophic Lateral Sclerosis also known to cause muscle twitches. It is advisable to see a neurologist for further evaluation, the neurologist is most likely to order MRI and blood test

What causes leg cramps?


Idiopathic leg cramps

Although the cause of idiopathic leg cramps is unknown, there are a number of theories about what might cause idiopathic leg cramps. These include:
  • abnormal nerve activity during sleep which causes the muscle of the leg to cramp
  • excessive strain placed on leg muscles, such as when exercising, may cause the muscles to cramp at certain times
  • a sudden restriction in the blood supply to the affected muscles
Also, tendons naturally shorten over time as a person gets older, which may explain why older people are particularly affected by leg cramps. Tendons are tough bands of tissue that connect muscles to bone. If your tendons become too short, they may cause the muscles connected to them to cramp.
Secondary leg cramps
Secondary leg cramps are caused by an underlying condition or another identifiable cause. These include:
  • pregnancy: the extra weight of pregnancy can place strain on the leg muscles, making them more vulnerable to cramping
  • exercise: leg cramps are often experienced when resting after exercise
  • neurological conditions (conditions that affect the nerves in your leg muscles): for example, motor neurone disease or peripheral neuropathy
  • liver disease: if your liver stops working properly, toxins will build up in your blood, which can make your muscles go into spasm
  • infection: some types of bacterial infection, such as tetanus, can cause muscle cramps and spasm
  • toxins: in some people, high levels of toxic (poisonous) substances in the blood, such as lead or mercury, can cause leg cramps
  • dehydration: in some people, low levels of water in the body can lead to a drop in your salt levels, which can trigger muscle cramps

Medication

Certain medications have been known to cause leg cramps in a small number of people. These include:

Muscle spasams


You probably need to drink more water ( at least 8 8ounce glasses per day). Or perhaps you're overworking your muscles too much.

I know that elliptical trainers are a good cardio workout but do they allow you to work your upper body?


Most elliptical trainers nowadays come with moveable arm handles. This gives you more upper body endurance and allows you to burn more calories.
