Intense pain after strenuous exercise, difficulty in deep breathing, constant pain in right side of chest. Cause of concern?

Hi. Yesterday I did some strenuous exercise after not working out in a while. This included cardio, lower body workout and abs. I found the AB workout particularly difficult and imagined that I would be sore today... But I am in so much pain. My legs are really painful, but I know it s just a matter of time and stretching . I am concerned about my abs though. I struggle to breath in deeply and have a constant pain just below and in my right side of my chest area... I am very worried. Should I be? Many thanks, Natalie

Hi Natalie,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
Too much of a good thing is also bad!
Probably you are new to exercise. You should start at slow pace and build up slowly to give your body time to acclimatize.
Exercise in sudden bursts, and too much work out can lead to heat stroke, myoglobbinuria, acute kidney injury to name a few well known complication.
So go slow about exercising, take rest for coming two days, take tab. Crocin for pain as required and take lots of liquids orally to keep good urine flow.
Take care!
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
