What causes arm pain after exercise?

I need help with an arm problem going on for 3 months. my arm locks, pops, and cracks. I am 13. My arm all of a sudden can t straighten all of the way. It sometimes locks and stays there for up to 5 hours. My arm is overall ache,but nothing extreme. It is worse with gymnastics, softball, push ups, etc. ( weight barring activities) I haven t seen a doctor, and my arm is getting worse.

Hello,

Muscle soreness is normal after exercise. I suggest to use magnesium supplements for muscle relaxation. I also suggest to use warm baths for muscle relaxation. You can use painkillers such as Tylenol for the pain.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
