In brief: MPS
Chronic pain caused by multiple trigger points & fascial constrictions.
It can affect several muscles & may be triggered by false posture or connective tissue diseases. Treatment can involve massage, antidepressants such as cymbalta, anticonvulsants such as lyrica, (pregabalin) or muscle relaxants such as baclofen. The urgency depends on severity of the pain.
