I was doing pull-ups the other day and it was quite enjoyable feeling: burning muscles, heart rate increasing, increased oxygen levels, blood rushing thru the veins.

Until I started a sharp pain in my shoulder... I tried too hard. And allowed myself a few days to recover. Yesterday I did some yoga and I was hoping that if I stretch myself everything will be back to norm.

Nothing. More. Wrong.

(you can see a rollup advising treat AE as the last resort)

I was treated by knowledgeable indian doctor who advised me to take it easy and take Ibuprofen and Paracetamol. Too bad the I can buy supplies only for two days of such treatment:

Is that how you cure muscle strain? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strain_(injury) Well... Time will tell. For now I can tell you that it sill hurts...
