    It could very well be a symptom of over training.

    Also, if it is muscular, you may want to try some muscle relaxers just to test your hypothesis. I was thrown from a car onto pavement when I was...

    Heh. Looks like I've had the same opinion for a while. I'm a regular student of Yang's in Boston, so I know tons of people who talk like TC Bob. I still think they are deluded.
