I'm not an expert here, but I think I know some of the initial questions those who know what they are talking about will ask you for clarification. How much recovery time between lift days are you giving yourself? Also, how intense are your workouts? Are you eating enough to refuel your body and build your muscles (this includes both protein and carbs)? If you are always sore you are probably not giving yourself enough time to recover/are working too hard/not eating enough.

I usually lift three times a week, and I'm often, but not always, lightly sore the day after--by which I mean I'd really only notice it if I thought about it. I only experience more intense, bothersome soreness when I do something new or come back after a break.

It's worst when you start a new program, new movements, or new rep ranges. Also from eccentric movement (eg. lowering, rather than raising weights), more so than the concentric part of the lift. Pretty normal, but it shouldn't be too bad after a week or two, and definitely not limiting daily activities.

agreeing with other people that Soreness (especially sensations bad enough to make to hurt functional fitness) shouldn't last.  If this feeling.... persists I'd recommend a revaluation some of your program.  maybe it needs tweaked?

 

I know, for myself, that I've done too much too quickly and gotten less gains as a result of it.

 

I also think that this kind of thing is very easy to do and common.  there are Many moving parts (so to speak) in a routine and its very hard to get them all perfectly figured out.
