Rhabdomyolysis A condition characterized by the rapid breakdown of damaged skeletal muscle. Injury to the muscle may be indirect or indirect, which then causes dead muscle fibers and constituents to be released into the bloodstream. The problem with this is that these can then cause serious complications with the kidneys, leading to kidney failure. Urine samples are often tea-colored or a dark inconsistency as a result. Fibromyalgia A condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain that researchers believe is caused by amplified pain sensations as perceived by the brain. Women more commonly present with fibromyalgia and typically do not have a single triggering event, but sometimes the condition may begin after physical trauma, surgery, infection, or significant psychological stress. There is no cure for fibromyalgia. Symptoms may be managed using a variety of medications, exercise, and relaxation techniques. 5. Injuries Rotator cuff injury A rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint, helping to keep the head of your upper arm within the shoulder socket. Injury to this structure can produce a dull ache of the shoulder, which can worsen when you sleep on the affected side. Those who use their shoulder muscles repeatedly for their job or during sports can get a rotator cuff injury.

Tendinitis Inflammation of the tendon—a tough band of fibrous connective tissue that usually connects muscle and bone. This condition is common due to overuse or repetitive movements of muscles and tissues involved. Compartment syndrome Occurs due to excessive pressure buildup inside an enclosed area in the body. Compartment syndrome is commonly caused by swelling or bleeding after an injury that leads to an increase in pressure. The condition can be extremely painful, as when pressure builds to dangerous levels, it can decrease blood flow, preventing oxygenated blood from reaching the soft tissue and nerves.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
