In brief: Yes, a lot

These terms are not interchangeable.
Myopathy implies a problem with the muscle itself, many different causes. Myalgia just refers to muscle aches or pains, from any cause. Rhabdomyolisis is the breakdown of muscle cells from several causes. This can be a serious problem as it can lead to kidney problems.
