If your gym has a pool, I would suggest just walking in the pool or if it has a spa, to utilize them after you exercise and that would help the pain. Unfortunately you don't know you have overdone it until it is too late the next day. You need to pace yourself and set up a routine at the gym that is not too strict a regiment. Bev

I use VOLTAREN EMULGEL JOINT PAIN RELIEF for when I over do it. But I would check with my Doctor before using anything in case you have done some damage.

I can't help you for now, but suggest that in future you pace yourself better. Also, it would pay for you to get properly checked by a Physiotherapist (not just a Personal Trainer) to find out what is best done and what is best left alone as it applies to YOU. It may be that you need some exercises to build up your strength before you go to the gym. I had to start with 5-10 minute core-strengthening exercises a day to build up my strength before I could do anything else.

It sounds like you have raised some pain from your joint and muscles. The balms and hot showers won't always ease those. It may take some slowing down to very easy movement for a couple of days. Don't stop completely as that will not help, and may cause other painful problems and stiffness that makes it even harder to get around. The hot treatments or ice packs may help a bit if there is inflammation but you may need something stronger than balms to kill the pain and inflammation. If you overdid it is probably not just the OA flaring but muscular too. It takes time for that to heal. This is a time I'd check with your Md and see about some form of pain killer even if it is the OTC kind like ibuprofen.

I really overdid it at the gym the other day and am really suffering. The hot tub, the shower, and analgesic balm is not helping. Any ideas?
