Health Tip: When Sore Muscles Warrant a Call to the Doctor

12/26/13

(HealthDay News) -- Muscle soreness can develop as you challenge yourself physically, but certain warning signs warrant a call to the doctor.

The American Academy of Family Physicians says you should contact a physician if you have:

  • Soreness in the muscles that persists for longer than one week.
  • Extreme pain that gets worse when you exercise.
  • Sore muscles or joints that feel warm to the touch, or are swollen or red.
  • A feeling of dizziness.
  • Trouble breathing.
