I asked a question before about tightness and muscles, and since then it has only gotten worse. The side of my leg and buttocks hurt when I walk, and my right arm feels like I just worked it out for six hours. With that, I'm also nauseated and feel dizzy. I'm not used to the nevada heat, could it be that i'm dehydrated?
