(26 tagged), (6) and (3) are pretty all about the same thing.

There are two questions under that don't seem to be directly related to muscles. The others could be retagged or are already tagged with .

Or maybe unify all those tags under the most common denominator ?

  • DOMS is a subset of muscle soreness, not an equivalent set. Dec 18 '12 at 15:05
  • @DaveLiepmann muscle soreness is a subset of soreness, too. My question here is, if we need all those tags or if one is enough.

I'd say we don't have enough questions about soreness to have 3 different tags for them. I'd also venture to say that we won't likely have many on-topic questions that have need of the tag , as any soreness not related to probably requires a doctor and is out of scope for this site.

Under we have at least 2 very borderline for being out-of-scope:

The only question which isn't about of the remaining questions, "How to reduce shoulder soreness during and after squats", is more about bruising type pain than . Since is a subset of , I think we should probably close the borderline questions, and retag everything to except the "shoulder soreness" question, and find a creative way to retag it ( + ).
