Myalgia can be localized or affect multiple muscle groups. Common triggers include stress, muscle overuse, physical injuries, and muscular tension. Systemic muscle pain can also occur due to illnesses, infections, or as a side effect of certain medications.
Prominent causes of myalgia include:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Lyme Disease
- Myofascial Pain Syndrome
- Rheumatoid Arthritis In addition, a variety of other diseases and conditions, such as hyperthyroidism, influenza, and dystonia, can lead to muscle pain.
Recognizing the Signs and Symptoms
Muscle pain can range from mild to severe and can be debilitating. Pain is a common symptom of many chronic conditions, and symptoms can vary widely. Muscle pain may be localized or widespread, and can be dull or sharp, mild or severe. Myalgia pain can vary in nature and may last from a few minutes to being constant.
In cases of infection-induced myalgia, symptoms may include fevers or chills. Additional symptoms can include joint pain, extreme fatigue, depression, and feeling overly tired, which are common in chronic pain conditions. Other possible symptoms include tenderness, swelling, and redness.
Dealing with myalgia and its associated symptoms can significantly impact one’s ability to carry out daily activities.
Addressing Myalgia: Treatment and Relief
Treatment for muscle pain resulting from overuse or injury may include rest, taking over-the-counter pain relievers or NSAIDs, and alternating between ice and heat within the first 24-72 hours to reduce pain and inflammation. For myalgia resulting from overuse or conditions like fibromyalgia, massage and gentle stretching exercises can be beneficial.
If pain persists for more than three days, it is crucial to seek medical attention. For pain resulting from strained or pulled muscles, the R.I.C.E. therapy (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) is an effective at-home treatment method.
