I work out 3 days a week and either jog or swim on the other days, and they all make me mildly sore all week long. I’m trying to stay off any kind of medication as much as I can for obvious reasons but sometimes the muscle pain can get slightly debilitating, especially when I’m trying to turn the steering wheel and a sudden sore in my arm can affect the maneuveur and potentially endanger myself.
I’m entertaining the idea of using some OTC painkillers but I don’t know if doing so would affect muscle growth or make me dependent or something else. Any tip would be appreciated. Thanks.
