Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic form of muscle pain. The pain of myofascial pain syndrome centers around sensitive points in your muscles called trigger points. The trigger points in your muscles can be painful when touched. And the pain can spread throughout the affected muscle.

Nearly everyone experiences muscle pain from time to time that generally resolves in a few days. But people with myofascial pain syndrome have muscle pain that persists or worsens. Myofascial pain caused by trigger points has been linked to many types of pain, including headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, low back pain, pelvic pain, and arm and leg pain.

Treatment for myofascial pain syndrome can bring pain relief in many cases. Options for myofascial pain syndrome treatment may include physical therapy, trigger point injections or medications.

Signs and symptoms of myofascial pain syndrome may include:

* Deep, aching pain in a muscle
* Pain that persists or worsens
* Muscle stiffness
* Joint stiffness near the affected muscle
* Area of tension in your muscle that may feel like a knot or tight spot and may be particularly sensitive to touch
* Difficulty sleeping due to pain
Sensitive areas of tight muscle fibers can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse. These sensitive areas are called trigger points. A trigger point in a muscle can cause strain and pain throughout the muscle. When this pain persists and worsens, doctors call it myofascial pain syndrome.

From above, he set fire to my bones…and I am weary and faint all day.” Lamentations 11:12-13.

“…[A]nd whereas the nights are appointed to me when I lie down I say ‘When shall I arise and the night be gone’ and am I full of tossing to and fro unto the dawning of the day…and the days of affliction have taken a hold upon me. My bones are pierced in me in the night season, and my sinews take no rest.” Job 7:3-4, 30:16-17.
