A short background:
I recently in joined a gym club. I am 28 yr old lean, underweight guy and the main purpose of joining the club is to increase my body weight and get toned. This was my first ever experience of weight training exercises and on the first day I tried almost everything I could, on my own, since no instructor was present that day. It was alright until I did a round of "Sit Ups" when I experienced a sudden sharp pain somewhere between my neck and right shoulder.
I didn't go to gym on the next day. I applied some "wintergreen oil" balm and the pain subsided. I continued from the third day. 60% of the pain had gone so I thought it was normal after effect of weight training.
The pain didn't completely vanish till 2 weeks. I was more worried as the pain worsened when my bike jerked on the road and as soon as I woke up. And the pain was only concentrated around my right arm and right neck area.
So I thought of giving up the exercises of upper body for some time and I resorted to cardio exercises. To compensate for the upper body workouts, I did heavy workouts on treadmill, bicycle etc and I sweated a lot ( normally, I sweat very less)! I also started adding some extra protein to my normal diet ( eggs, soya beans, cheese etc.) to recover the calorie loss...To my amazement, I started to experience bloating and pain in my abdomen after few days.
My bloating has subsided a bit after I have been taking one pantoprazole before meal for the last 3 days. But the pain in my right arm hasn't. Since I need to gain weight, I don't want to cut down on eggs, milk, cheese and other protein rich food completely. Should I need to get a medical help for the right arm now? I am sure the doctor will tell me to quit the gym so I don't want to....and, is cardio exercises ( that led to high perspiration) responsible for the bloating? What should I do now?
