Hey all, ive been having alot of what i think is muscle pain for a couple of years now.. 

i get pains in my lower legs all the time especially after running, i have also been having alot of trouble with forearm muscles being very painful after use. 

Chest muscle pains in the centre and down the left side of my ribs.. 

i get alot of back, neck, shoulder pain and between the shoulders..

aswell as what i can only assume as my diaphragm muscles not working properly.. 

have just recently found out i have mild cervicothoracic scoliosis convex to the left, subtle mid thoracic scoliosis convex to the right roughly in the t7/8, straightening oh cervical lordosis and 17mm pelvic unlevelling high on left side and femoral head high 17mm on the left also.. 

could these be the cause of my pain and discomfort?...

    Yes I think it could be although I'm not a doc, I would suggest you go see a good chiropractor who can align your spine, it's amazing what these guys can do if you get a good one.

    I see my chiro twice per week, he sometimes puts my neck in traction as I have lordosis, multi level bone spurs and disc bulges, The lordosis has not progressed in 5 years, I also have pressure on my spinal cord in the thoracic area t2-6 from a cyst which causes muscle spasms, I hope this helps😊

      Thanks for the reply caroline! 

      I have just started seeing a chiropractor and have only had 2 sessions so far but am back again next week.. 

      Hoping to get some results as some of the pains are very disturbing and the numbness and tingling i get is starting to freak me out haha

      Brill, Ye sometimes the pain can be worse but once it's starts settling youl feel the benefits, stick with it and once he's got you sorted it will just be a maintenance plan after that but I couldn't recommend them highly enough, sometimes I'm so bad I can't make appointments for a month or so and when I go back he says it's like treating me for the first and it definitely feels like it, I hope you get some relief soon, maybe try ice packs for 20 mins an hour and see if that helps, good luck😊

      I totally understand and that's the difficult part, there is treatment out there to help you get better but unless you have endless pots of money you have to suffer😢 😊

    Hi kurt19299, if you have exercise intolerance, that is prolonged muscle pain and weakness after exercise, then you should also rule out any metabolic disorders. For more information, you can search the internet for metabolic muscle disorders.

    The other thing you should rule out is any deficiency that may interfere with the function of your muscles. 

    Two years back I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism which in my case caused severe muscle pain and muscle wasting. The muscle pain improved after taking medication to restore normal thyroid levels. Many hyperthyroid patients have an L-Carnitine deficiency. I started to take L-Carnitine supplements and it has helped to speed up the recovery of my muscles.
