    Re: muscular strain

    Dear Rover,

    Fancy meeting you here, I feel so warm since your kindness fills my life.

    I did look up "Strain" before asking a question here, I don't want to waste anyone's time here. I asked this question because the Chinese translation made a seemingly stupid mistake, it means "the muscle is too tight", whereas when I looked up "Strain", it gives the definition like "injury to the muscle", that's what make me feel confused.

    Yours

    Silver
