my muscles awere so tight all over my body to the point I was nauseas from pain. i decided to try some pediolyte in case my electrolytes were off. within minute I felt relief. I had not had diarhea or anything else to cause me to lose lots of fluid. and hasd been drinking plenty of water. this muscle problem happens often. what could be cause?
You could have a muscle disorder, like rhabdomyalisis. Are you on any meds? Are you muscles weak? Any medical problems? How long have you had these complaints?

Occasionally januvia can cause muscle pains. You need your muscle enzymes like CPK and aldolase checked to see if there is muscle inflammation. Also a sed rate. Other causes of muscle tightness is polymositis. I can't give you a diagnosis without these labs, but these tests are needed. See your doc or a rheumatologist.
