Hello,

After I started taking 2 g of creatine monohydrate with about 1 g of sodium bicarbonate on 6 days a week, I noticed feeling achy pretty much like with a muscle soreness.
Other than this, I did not make any significant changes in my daily routines.
Apparently due to this, I have gained some weight, including in muscle mass.
Thus I wonder whether anybody has experienced something like this, whether this is normal, and/or whether one can do something to relieve it.

Many thanks in advance!

I haven't taken creatine, but I know the basics of what it does to the body. I would suggest increasing your water intake. Creatine increases the amount of water in your muscles so the lactic acids don't build up and make your muscles sore. By increasing your water intake you'll stay hydrated and feeling good. I drink at least 3.5 liters a day so you'll want to drink 4-4.5 at minimum.

I read about the recommendation to drink a lot with the creatine intake, but not as much as 4 Liters.
Nevertheless, I'm drinking close to 4 Liters per day - even more when I'm sweating a lot.

try to consult your doctor about it and don't stress to much of your body.

You're only taking 2g a day? How much do you weigh, if you don't mind my asking?

Usually you take it at 5g minimum per day!

My weight is about 75 kg.
I'm taking just 2g because together with the sodium bicarbonate there is reportedly a better absorption.
