• Doctors classify chronic muscle pain as myofascial pain syndrome (MPS), and it can be incredibly excruciating for those who suffer from it. There are a number of causes for MPS, and it might be hard to pinpoint the exact reason. However, pain is the body's way of letting you know something is wrong, so it's important not to ignore it.


    One simple cause of muscle pain is an inadequate amount of sleep (fatigue). This can be remedied by adjusting your sleeping schedule and getting more hours of rest.

    Disc Injury

    A more common cause of MPS is an injury to the invertebral disc. An injury to your disc can be caused by poor posture, spinal misalignment, bad lifting techniques and habits, and extended periods of sitting.

    Lack of Activity

    People who have broken an arm or leg and have been unable to perform routine activities may suffer from MPS as a result of their inactivity.

    Repetitive Motions

    Repetitive motions (for example, lifting boxes for a move) can cause MPS to occur in the muscles that are consistently being used.

    Medical Conditions

    Seemingly unrelated health conditions such as a heart attack, stroke, or even an upset stomach have been known to cause MPS.
