WTB: Cure (General Soreness)

If you don't understand gamer speak. The title is Willing To Buy a cure for general soreness.

Because I'm fucking in pain. I swear I feel like someone stuffed me in a punching bag and went to town. Now I know my left arm and shoulder are probably sore because I tend to lean on them, but I doubt the rest of me should feel like this.

Granted no I don't really think I've been sleeping walking again (Did for a short period of time 2 years ago when I was on those anti-depression pills, hell to wake up with defensive marks on your arms and the realization that I don't remember what happened to me the previous 9 hours :/)

And yes I've been getting enough sleep at reasonable times (going to bed between 2-6 in the morning getting at least 6 hours of sleep a day. But still in fucking pain :( UGH

So yeah if you have a miracle cure Offer it.

I don't have a tub I could use, I don't have monies and I don't have a bf or anyone else who'd massage me, so don't mention those plz.

Oh man, I have jaw issues that has to go away from itself(It's been there for a year).
Some days its fine, other days I have to swallow painkillers like candy.
Try getting some of those against muscle pain cremes from the pharmacist.

Also if you have fans, open windows or especially A/C turn them off/close them.

Commie bat has a very solid suggestion.

Are you on any medications? That sort of soreness is a side effect of certain medications and rather rare outside of that.

Do you get much exercise or have a physically demanding job? Full body soreness can be caused by lack of the former and too much of the latter.

Yoga or basic proper stretching will help a lot. I walk a LOT so I do this every morning, it's a nice way to start the day. Also drink moar water, I'll bet you don't get near enough. Other than that, so aspirin maybe. Or strong drink.

I honestly agree with the bed thing. Get a firmer one.

This is going to sound really odd, I know. Spend a night sleeping on your back on the floor. I'm currently living on my in laws couch so I have a very similar problem. Spending a night or two on the floor really helps. It changes your sleeping posture, forcing you to arch your back more which helps with the soreness.

Interesting, but I have a tendency to sleep on my side, would sleeping on the floor still change that factor?

I sleep on my side as well. Sleeping on the floor should probably still help you. The problem with sleeping on a couch is that they lack support, or have support in the wrong places. This means that when you sleep on your side your spine winds up looking like a hammock. Your spine was meant to look like this ! Not like this (. This puts strain on your entire body. If I go a whole week just sleeping on the couch I experience soreness in my shoulders, back, hips, and knees. For me a night on the floor acts like erasing a chalkboard. It leaves some traces of the soreness behind but takes a lot of it away. It's not a cure all, but it does help. Stretching, exercisin, aand keeping hydrated help as well. Yoga is good too, but personally I file that away under stretching.

6 hours is not enough sleep.
It's situational. Your body can easily learn to cope with less, if it's all you can get for an extended period. I submit myself as citation :v

But yeah, if there's no actual injury you've suffered it's likely either to be your mattress or your posture. If you do lifting regularly, make sure you're using a good technique. Try sleeping somewhere different, too.

ED: The floor suggestion is a very good one.

Sleep on your back on the floor, not your side. I know it's hard to fall asleep like that when you're used to falling asleep on your side. It might be worth it though.
