Often, people overuse a muscle performing work, daily chores, or activities that place a lot of stress on the body without taking sufficient rest periods. This overuse results in muscle pain that reappears when the person begins doing the same task the next day. Muscle pain can also be caused by minor injuries and tension as the pain may develop in a specific place on the body. If the person has an infection, illness, or takes medication, they may feel moderate or severe muscle pain throughout their entire body.
A person should seek medical advice and treatment from a doctor quickly if they feel dizzy or have trouble breathing. These issues may indicate more serious conditions. They should also seek emergency care if they take medications that increase muscle pain, have an infection that causes pain, or experience any rashes or bug bites on the skin that could be an indication of Lyme disease.
