What could be the cause of sudden piercing pain in my muscle?


Answer by  luvlexis83 (798)

This pain may be coming from a pinched nerve, muscle spasm, or even a strain. More than likely the sharp piercing pain is a pinched nerve. You can get a pinched nerve from a previous bad accident, sleeping wrong continuasly, or any repetitive awkward motion. You can use ice to soothe the pain until you get to a doctor.

The sudden piercing pain means that you have probably developed some form of inflammation in the muscle from either overwork or injury. Anti-inflammatory medicine will ease the pain until you can get an MRI from a doctor.
