I need some help here.
I've been giving myself my PIO shots for the last 2 nights. The shots themselves don't hurt and are pretty easy to give, etc. I massage the site quite a bit directly after and used a heating pad on it last night for about 15min.
The real issue I have is soreness later that evening and the next day. I don't have any lumps in the muscle. It's just really really sore and stiff feeling like when you push yourself a bit more during exercising.
Is there anything I can do for this soreness? I continued to massage the offending areas yesterday and this morning, but they still ache.
Any and all suggestions and tips would be fantastic!
Update: I'm trying the shots w/o icing before (as I saw recommended elsewhere). Instead, I heated a touch beforehand. Also, I found my heated massager, so I'll be giving that a try here after the heating pad. Thanks for all the commiseration!
