Recovery. Individual recovery times will vary. If you take a complete break from activity, you can expect to see improvements after 2 weeks. However, it may take up to 3 months before you’re fully healed.
Can you get sick from overworking your muscles?
Working out too much or too vigorously can cause such muscle damage. So can dehydration, getting crushed by a car, a falling building, or Superman/Supergirl, falling and laying motionless for a long time especially when intoxicated, getting electrocuted, or suffering a venomous snake bite.
