What is Myalgia?

What is myalgia? Perhaps you’ve been experiencing muscle pain or aching and have come across some unfamiliar terms. One term, myalgia, is a condition caused by injury to the muscles that often occurs with myositis (muscle inflammation). According to WebMD, another term used describe muscle pain is myofascial pain syndrome (MPS), which refers to both pain and inflammation. Although the most common cause of muscle pain is overuse or over-stretching, the pain is typically a symptom of many diseases and disorders.
