What is myofascial pain?

Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder and occurs when pressure on your facial muscles results in pain in seemingly unrelated parts of the body. It can result from muscles contracting repeatedly, whether unconsciously from stress or from a repetitive job or hobby. Common symptoms of myofascial pain include:
• Aching muscle pain
• Persistent muscle pain
• Knots and tenderness in muscle
• Difficulty sleeping because of pain
