Fibromyalgia is a chronic, widespread form of myofascial pain. Fibromyalgia symptoms often begin after a physical or emotional trauma, but in many cases there appears to be no triggering event. The condition is associated with trigger points and sleep disturbance. Click on this link for more information about fibromyalgia, About Fibromyalgia.

Myofascial Pain Syndrome
Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic, localized form of muscle pain. The pain arises from “taut” bands in muscle that are called “trigger points.” The trigger points in the muscle are painful when touched. Myofascial pain caused by trigger points has been linked to many types of pain, including headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, low back pain, pelvic pain, and arm and leg pain.
