Anyone have any suggestions to help out with this? The front tendon, sides, and backs are hurting so bad that I can't make it more than 15 minutes on cardio. Its my fault for bringing the mosh at that show last week

Elevate your feet when you lay down. It won't feel natural for a while, but it will help a great deal.

epsom salt baths in as hot of water as you can stand, for as long as you can stand it.

i occasionally used horse liniment on my elbow when i played baseball when i was especially sore. depending on what you buy, you may have to dilute it. but i used to put some into a towel and wrap it around my arm and knees. its basically extreme icy hot. gets the blood flowing.

the epsom salt bath is a good idea. same with rubbing bengay on the area. see how that feels for starters. if it starts to bother more easily like just when you walk, then you might want to see a doctor. could have damaged one of your CL's.

it's gotten a little better since the show... it doesn't give me much pain when walking except up stairs.

i have tiger balm, that helps a little... and after every cardio session i have been getting in the hot tub so that helps too

tiger balm is basically linament oil which is amazing. i'd prefer that shit over bengay or icy-hot.

if its bothering you directly after cardio, it sounds like inflamation. Put ice on it first.

actually directly after cardio it feels better than when i started, and certainly better than when i was actually doing the cardio

I had a similar problem when I was trying to rip up/get more defined. If you want to do large amounts of cardio, switch it up and get a lot of variety into your routine. When I was using just a treadmill and eliptical, I had this problem.

i blame the mosh.

i am just convinced that i will have to man up and ignore the pain. it doesn't hurt during cardio, just before and after

i find that biofreeze works better for sore muscles and the like. while tiger balm feels hotter, it doesnt seem to easy the pain like biofreeze does.

start stretching you old fuck..

the soreness comes from tightness around ligaments so that when you strain them what's happening is that their pulling harder against the bone.
