Muscle aches and pains are common and can involve more than one muscle. Muscle pain also can involve ligaments, tendons, and fascia, the soft tissues that connect muscles, bones, and organs.
There are many causes of muscle pain including Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a bacterial infection spread through the bite of an infected Deer tick.
Symptoms of early localized Lyme disease begin days or weeks after infection. They are similar to the flu and can include severe muscle pain.
With or without Lyme disease, muscle aches and pains are common and can involve more than one muscle.
Muscle pain is most frequently related to tension, overuse, or muscle injury. Muscle pain can also be a sign of infection, chronic disease and disorders that affect connective tissues throughout the body.
If you suffer from chronic muscle pain as a result of infection, overuse, or disease, contact the Franklin Pain and Wellness Center.
