Does myofascial pain syndrome cause swelling? Such as my arms and legs, and does it cause muscle weakness?

No swelling: Muscles may feel swollen but not appear to actually swell. The pain sometimes feels like weakness.

No. : Osteopenia is simply softening of the bones. It is not painful and does not affect the muscles.
