1. Anaemia - iron deficiency; anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired that can also be reason to have frequent sprains in the leg once the oxygen levels in the blood comes down it automatically leads to improper functioning of the joints and muscles. That's the reason you become tired in this young age and also you will also get calf muscle cramps and pain if your haemogloblin levels are poor in the blood.

What r other symptoms that you r experiencing? By doing what like walking, exertion, eating or empty stomach- it increases or decreases in intensity. For how much time the pain remains? Is there stiffness also? How is your appetite? R you constipated? Any problem in urine? I need to know more to be able to make diagnosis. In the meanwhile follow this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U should eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9. Drink lot of water.10. Everyday preferably sleep on same time exercise in the form of yoga, cycling, swimming, gym etc.For more details, you can consult me.

Tmj disorders may cause mild to debilitating symptoms, such as:•pain while chewing •pain in the ear, face, jaw, and neck •clicking, grating, or popping sounds in the jaw when you open or close your mouth •locking of the jaw joint, headaches exercises for tmj pain relief 1. Relaxed jaw exercise rest your tongue gently on the top of your mouth behind your upper front teeth. Allow your teeth to come apart while relaxing your jaw muscles. 2. Goldfish exercises (partial opening) place your tongue on the roof of your mouth and one finger in front of your ear where your tmj is located. Put your middle or pointer finger on your chin. Drop your lower jaw halfway and then close. There should be mild resistance but not pain. A variation of this exercise is to place one finger on each tmj as you drop your lower jaw halfway and closed again. Do this exercise six times in one set. You should do one set six times daily. 3. Goldfish exercises (full opening) keeping your tongue on the roof of your mouth, place one finger on your tmj and another finger on your chin. Drop your lower jaw completely and back. For a variation of this exercise, place one finger on each tmj as you completely drop your lower jaw and back. Do this exercise six times to complete one set. You should complete one set six times daily. 4. Chin tuckswith your shoulders back and chest up, pull your chin straight back, creating a “double chin.” hold for three seconds and repeat 10 times. 5. Resisted opening of the mouth place your thumb under your chin. Open your mouth slowly, pushing gently against your chin for resistance. Hold for three to six seconds, and then close your mouth slowly. 6. Resisted closing of the mouth squeeze your chin with your index and thumb with one hand. Close your mouth as you place gently pressure on your chin. This will help strengthen your muscles that help you chew. 7. Tongue up with your tongue touching the roof of your mouth, slowly open and close your mouth. 8. Side-to-side jaw movement put a ¼ inch object, such as stacked tongue depressors, between your front teeth, and slowly move your jaw from side to side. As the exercise becomes easier, increase the thickness of the object between your teeth by stacking them one on top of each other. 9. Forward jaw movement put a ¼ inch object between your front teeth. Move your bottom jaw forward so your bottom teeth are in front of your top teeth. As the exercise becomes easier, increase the thickness of the object between your teeth. Other ways to manage your tmj pain over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen and acetaminophenmay help relieve tmj pain. Muscle relaxers may be prescribed for severe pain. Doctors may also recommend: tmj pain may also be managed with simple lifestyle changes. You may wish to: •eat a soft diet to allow the tmj to relax •avoid chewing gum •avoid biting your nail •avoid biting your lower lip •practice good posture •limit large jaw movements, such as yawning and singing tips to reduce pain and help make sure your teeth and gums stay healthy: •use a soft-bristle toothbrush or a sonic toothbrush. •use a rubber tip stimulator or water flosser if you can’t open your mouth to floss. •add an antiseptic mouth rinse to your daily dental care regimen. •tell your dental care team if you’re in pain during a dental procedure. •apply ice or heat after a dental procedure. •talk to your dentist about ways to remove plaque other than flossing. For example, they may suggest wiping your teeth with cotton gauze. The following home remedies may provide some relief: •ice or cold packs to the area of the joint •over-the-counter (otc) nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids), such as ibuprofen (advil, motrin) or naproxen (aleve), and other pain relievers, including aspirin (ecotrin) and acetaminophen (tylenol) •eating soft foods and avoiding chewing gum •massage or gentle self-stretching of the jaw and neck muscles (a doctor or physical therapist can recommend appropriate stretches.) •relaxation techniques and stress management and reduction.

You can apply ice pack. Do some hot water fermentation. Its just a soreness to the muscle. Don't complicate much.

I’m on ride with my friend suddenly he drove me through a pit as soon as my left side latissimus dorsi started paining. I’ve taken acemiz plus tablets on an advice from a pharmacist. The pain got little cured but whenever I wake up from a sleep the pain is severe and takes time to get my original posture. I’m quite comfortable if I walk but if I switch to sleeping position the pain tends to start. Please somebody help me to get rid of this.

When muscle affects or injury it give you a more pain as well as it take more time to heal,sometimes it go till month. But i think you need do some x-ray under doctor consult because there may be injury to nerve, ribs, muscles. Because there may be occur severe injury but didn't feel. Highly recommend you to consult with doctor.
