    Unhappy What to do to heal a pulled (strained) muscle?

    I found out I pulled (strained) a muscle 3 months after I actually pulled it. The doctor gave me some medicine called Piroxicam and said it MIGHT heal the pain from the injury, but I might need physical therapy. Have anyone had to deal with this type of injury before? What helped u get better?

    Piroxicam is used to relieve the pain, tenderness, inflammation (swelling), and stiffness caused by arthritis.


    What is the most important information I should know about piroxicam?

    • Take piroxicam with food, milk, or an antacid to lessen stomach upset.
    • Contact your doctor if you experience blood in vomit or bloody, black, or tarry stools. These symptoms could indicate damage to the stomach or intestines, which could be dangerous.
    • Many over-the-counter cough, cold, allergy, and pain medicines contain aspirin or other medicines similar to piroxicam (such as ibuprofen, ketoprofen, and others). Before taking any prescription or over-the-counter medicine, talk to your doctor and pharmacist.
    • Avoid alcohol or use it with moderation. If you drink more than three alcoholic beverages a day, piroxicam may increase the risk of dangerous stomach bleeding. Talk to your doctor before taking piroxicam if you drink more than 3 alcoholic beverages a day.
    I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!

    if it is pulled or strained (depending on the grade of strain) just rest it.

    My doctors given me 'dextrarine phénylbutazone'. For an 'infected' strained tendon(???) in the shoulder. But this is a pain thats been coming and going since April 2004.

    Problem is, I couldnt understand all he said (because it was in French). He bashes out his prescription on the PC, hands me the paper and kicks me out.Obviously thinks I'm wasting his time..........
