Brief Answer:
clinical assessment and investigations may help

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Welcome to XXXXXXX
The frequent and easy inflammation of the muscles can be due to the general hyperexcitability of the muscle tissue secondary to nutritional disorders and wasting.
It can be due to electrolyte imbalance, deficiency of potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphate etc or it can be due to general disorder like neuropathy secondary to vitamin B complex deficiency state. There are certain congenital disorders which affect the functioning of muscles and produce similar rawness of muscles. The best way to diagnose the problem is to get evaluated by a local physician and get physical examination and clinical assessment.
To start with a complete blood count, renal function test, liver function test, creatine phosphokinase ice CPK levels and serum electrolyte measurement as advised earlier would be a good guide.
I hope the advice will be helpful for you.

My wife and I decided to start trying for a baby. I can not find any research on males side of things. I am most worried about the meds I am on. Overall, Im healthy, dont drink but a couple drinks a week, exercise regularly,don t smoke, etc. I do take Concerta 27 mg, Lexapro 10mg 3-4x s wk, Canasa 1000mg suppository for crohns w/ balazimine? as needed for crohns. Also, for lifting I use protien & N.O. pre workout supplements (l- arginine , creatine etc). I do have 1 child from previous marraige and she is beuatiful and healthy (Besides Daddy s ADD). However I wasnt diagnosed with crohns nor ADD and wasnt on any meds then.
