What is myofascial pain syndrome?
Myofascial pain syndrome is characterized by muscle pain, tenderness, and spasm. Myofascial pain syndrome usually involves muscle in body areas that are asymmetric or focal, whereas fibromyalgia is typically a diffuse and symmetric muscle pain syndrome that involves both sides of the body.
What are myofascial pain syndrome symptoms and signs?
Myofascial pain syndrome causes localized muscle pain. Affected muscles cause neck pain, upper back pain, and lower back pain, generally affecting one side of the body or one side of the body much more than the other. There is commonly tenderness and spasm in the painful areas and there may be tenderness in areas that are not feeling chronic pain.
It is also common for patients with myofascial pain syndrome to have poor sleep patterns with decreased recovery sleep (non-rapid eye movement sleep). This is associated with awakening feeling unrested and daytime fatigue. Stiffness after inactivity is common.
