Dear Dr. TQC,
About a month ago, give or take, I pulled a muscle in my back; it was so bad that I could barely move for about an hour. It was significantly better by the next day. However, every once in a while it is a little sore. What's up? Is it still healing? Should I try to do some weight lifting to make my back stronger? or should I just suck it up and go to the doctor.
Also I tripped while running about two months ago and banged up my knee. I ceased intensive physical activity for about two weeks, as the knee was very sore. It is much better now, but it still occasionally hurts for a period while I run. I've also noticed that it tends to hurt most while I'm sleeping. WHY. Is my body slow at healing, am I fucked for life, do I need to see a doctor, or is this just normal recovering?
