Does exercise cause muscle tears and further exercising affect the previously torn muscles ?

Age: 20 Inactive. Last physical was normal. I haven t been very active in the last few weeks, and I think as a result I have had sharp pains (muscle tears ) all over my calves and by my thighs. I have also noticed that I have been getting small, painless bumps on my thighs, and I was wondering if these are due to the muscle tearing, like shin splints . And my legs are somewhat tingly, is this due to muscle repair? I want to exercise, but I am so nervous about tearing more muscles, or re-tearing previously torn muscles.

Hi,thanks for query.Unless you have done some vigorous activity which can hurt,muscle tearing is not possible.What you might be having is muscle pain due to inactivity period that you had.Do not worry about bumps,start working gradually and then built up time.Do some light message after exercise for having good circultion.Tingling that you are having may due to some odd nerve irritation.At your age I do not see any major issue.Take plenty of liquids and fluids rich in potassium as its deficiency can lead to this.
wishing you good health.
