Definition:

Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic form of muscle pain and is centered around sensitive points in your muscles called trigger points. The trigger points can be painful when touched, and the pain can spread through the affected muscle. Myofacial pain is a severe form of muscle pain that persists or worsens.

Symptoms:

Some symptoms include deep, aching pain in the muscle which persists or worsens, muscle stiffness, joint stiffness near the affected muscle, area of tension the muscle, and difficulty sleeping due to the pain.

Cause:

The cause of Myofascial pain is caused by the sensitive areas of tight muscle fibers which can form in the muscles after injuries or overuse. These sensitive areas are called trigger points. Factors that may increase your risk of muscle trigger points include muscle injury, inactivity, stress and anxiety, age, and sex.
