Myofascial dysfunction syndrome is a chronic pain disorder that causes pressure on sensitive joints in your muscles (trigger points), which results in pain in the muscles. Sometimes, people may feel pain in unrelated parts of the body as well and this is called “referred pain.” Myofascial dysfunction syndrome usually appears when your muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can stem from a number of factors, such as repetitive motions performed in jobs, hobbies, as well as stress-related tension.
Symptoms of Myofascial Dysfunction
If you suffer from myofascial dysfunction, you may experience the following symptoms:
- Deep, aching pain in the muscle
- Pain that worsens or persists
- Tender knot in the muscle
- Difficult sleeping (due to pain)
