Local myalgia: Muscle co-contraction (i.e., muscle splinting) is a reflex protective response that is mediated through the cns. It results in muscle tightening (i.e., guarding) to protect the injured part. Usually there is no pain until the injured part is moved. To be included in the diagnosis of fm, the pain should be located in at least three out of four quadrants of the body or along the entire spine. ...Read more

My right arm keeps twitching between my bicep and tricep. What is the likely cause and treatment?
Fasciculation: Most of the time a muscle "twitch" (or fasciculation) is totally normal. However, it can be a sign of nerve disease (lower motor neuron disease). If there was a nerve disease, I would also expect to have some evidence of sensory or strength loss on exam (and in the patient's list of complaints). Additionally I would expect reflexes to be reduced or absent. Without these, it is probably normal. ...Read more
