The previous poster gave you some good suggestions. Did you try a new activity and maybe that's why you're sore. Keep in mind the soreness is usually worst 2 days after the activity. Just try to keep doing light activity b/c staying still for too long is likely to make the soreness worse.

Hang in there,

I usually do a yoga pose that requires you to lay on the floor and stretch your arms over your head and stretch your feet outwards. This stretches the abdominal wall. Also, you can get one of those big exercise balls and lay on top of it. Roll backwards until your hands reach the floor. This also stretches the abdominal wall.

The main thing is to stretch to the point that you feel slightly uncomfortable. After awhile it will feel good to stretch, even if you're sore.

What could I do to solve my soreness of the abdomen? I have never had it happen before but it is really tingling to a point where it hurts and I cannot stop it. I know the tingling is nothing to worry over and it will pass but the hurting is too much...

I did bodybuilding in my early 20's and I suffered from sore muscles quite frequently. I found that taking an amino acid supplement after my workout and a protein shake that had bananas and unsweet chocolate in it helped tremendously, especially for next day soreness. I also love soaking in the tub with epsom salts. Tiger balm is also very effective for sore muscles, but make sure you don't put it on directly after a bath/shower. Wait about an hour or two and then put it on or prior to bedtime. Also, on "rest days" you might want to throw in a relaxing yoga routine. Stretch those muscles frequently.

I use Dr. Teal's Eucalyptus and Spearmint epsom salts in a nice hot bath and soak for about 30 minutes then afterward I use some Ice Hot with Lidocaine. I found that stuff works pretty good for nerve pain and muscle pain, even with my neuropathy and fibromyalgia.

Thank you al for your advice. I still am trying to work out everyday but I have changed what I do everyday instead of getting into a rut. It has helped. I also figured out that most of the soreness was coning from a fall had recently. I feel much better now Thank you again. emoticon

you might want to stick a Rest Day in there. I exercise everyday, but on my Rest Days, I'll switch from weights to cardio or abs, to give my muscles a break. Try to get some hydration in you. Also, you may want to try some ibuprofen, or foods with inflammatory items. That might help with the pain. Hopefully you haven't sprained something...

This comes from both my physical therapist, and the Arthritis Foundation:
If you have a particularly sore area (like a knee or calf or quad muscle) you might want to try a heating pad of some sort on it for 10 or 15 min...BEFORE...you lightly stretch, and then do some light walking. Other than to get some stiffness out, remember than stretches are really better done after your muscles have been warmed up by working out..... Don't stretch cold muscles!
Hope you're back to normal soon,

The previous posters have given you some good advice. Have you always exercised daily? Do you ever take rest days?

are you doing new exercises or did you maybe overdo it one day? i would recommend some nsaids if you can take them and the pain is that bad, as well as rest for a couple days. if you can manage some walking do that to keep things moving. i wouldn't overstretch, though. if you're this sore after doing exercises you typically do (without such soreness), that could warrant a doctor visit.

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

Soaking in hot water should help - adding a couple of cups of Epsom salts to it will improve the chances of a hot bath helping. I also like to add some essential oils like lavender (especially relaxing if you soak before bed) and oregano oils, also rosemary and thyme are great too.

Soaking in a hot bath my help, but if you work out regularly and still have muscle soreness I would speak to a doctor, especially if it's preventing you from exercising.

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

I am having trouble. I try to work out in one form or another everyday. The problem is I am very sore from the waist down. I do stretch and it does help but not completely. It is making it difficult to get up and down. This in turn makes me not want to move much. Would soaking in water help? I need suggestions please.
