    Last night i decided to have a 90 minute oil massage at a Thai massage shop.
    The massage was quite good not too hard but going i to joints thighs feet bback etc with a deep tissure massage he told me.

    Today i woke up i couldnt get out of bed, my lower back was in pain and my thighs were painful.
    I took panadols and went back to bed.
    Today i have pain in all parts of the legs , lower back and kidney areas .
    I havent been able to move without taking panadol and still its hard to move mostly a dull pain in all parts of the legs from thighs to inside the knee to calves.

    Back is lower back and more sharp pain
    Kidneys where he massaged i think with his elbow pointy area into the kidneys also hurt..

    Do u think the massage caused this ? I spoke to my sister on the telephone she said maybe its releasing tixins? I dont know but my knee is in pain and i think by him bending it sideways maybe made it worser.

    Go see a doctor. You might need a scan for back.

    For muscle pains I would take ibuprofen rather than paracetamol.

    I think if it keeps being painful in my legs i will go back to bed early and if it stays tommorrow i will have to see a doctor i guess.

    Some of this deep tissue massage was painful and i had to tell him a few times it was hurting.
    But now im paying the price.

    You are bruised. Traditional deep Thai massage can REALLY cause some pain until days after. Rexona bath salts and a hot bath.

    A massage like The one you described would be similar to doing an all out workout in the gym for 90 minutes. If your body is not used to that, then that's why it's sore. I always call a massage or a Chiropractor session a 'workout' and treat it as such that you need to recover from it.

    Your sister is right, the massage would release any toxins present in the areas of the muscles that don't get much blood flow. Your kidneys are probably working overtime.

    As said, Ibuprofen would be more suited to repairing and pain. Also, taking 2 first up then one every 2hrs instead of the recommended two every 4hrs smooths out the pain/feel good fluctuations.

    I had a traditional Thai massage in Bangkok 2 years ago and it was painful. My wife asked the masseur to go easy but she didn't really understand. After 2 hours we were in pain.

    I had something similar done and the massage person told me to drink a lot of water afterwards. A good massage does cause tissue damage and releases toxins, which need to be flushed out... hence the water.

    I wouldn't go to the doctor for a back scan. Did you see 4 corners last night (or was it the night before?). Bed rest and scans are not advised for back problems. You need to keep mobile.

    I just had a wonderful thought of Xmas presents for people I don't like..... does the shop do gift vouchers?

    I assume you mean "Radox" not "Rexona"

    No i didnt watch Four Corners the other night.
    I will watch it in ABC iview .

    Im sure he was using the point of his elbow to massage my kidneys.
    Then my upper thigh area , just under the underwear line he seemed to be stopping a vein for 20 seconds or so and then releasing it msybe stopping blood or something or maybe im just thinking he did that but it felt like that he was doing that.

    I dont think i will go back simehow lol

    I know first hand that some went for a massage and a masseur stepped on her back. She suffered a disc protrusion. Immediate pain. Hopefully your just deep muscle tissue pain.

    How do I make you hate me mate? :)

    I love this stuff (when done properly). Yes, you do feel a bit sore for 48 hours but it's a good pain, makes my body function ok for 2-3 weeks...

    I don't know why people do this. I hate massages.

    It's like i'm either being tickled or being caused pain. There is no nice medium for me.

    I even married a masseuse, and gave her one crack and still wasn't into it.

    Strange (you lot).

    Ahhhh yes of course. Thanks for the correction. I knew it was for sport soaking, but I'm more of a shower person so never paid it much notice. :p

    You have to watch with those Thai massages because alot of them have been caught working without being trained and they can do more harm than good.

    Next time you get a massage should should get cupping done. I used to say it was a waste of time and it's crap but I gave it a go and my back has never felt so good. Only if it's done properly though.
