What is myalgia?

Muscle soreness, due to inflammation of the muscle cells. Causes include strenuous exercise, viral illness, drugs, and autoimmune disease (body's immune system attacking itself).

Symptoms of myalgia

  • Pain on pressing the back

  • Thigh pain

  • Pain in the arms and/or legs

Questions your doctor may ask to check for myalgia

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose myalgia

  • Do you have any chest pain?

  • Do you have pain when you press your back?

  • Do you have thigh pain?

  • Do you have pain in your arms and/or legs?

Treatment for myalgia

This condition tends to improve by itself, or once the cause is treated. Physical therapy can help with increasing flexibility and relieving pain. Other simple treatments include warm compresses, stretching exercises, and avoiding strenuous exercises until the pain resolves. Medications like painkillers and muscle relaxants may help as well.
