Muscle Pain Causes


Most common cause of muscle aches and pain is fibromyalgia, a condition that causes tenderness in your muscles and surrounding soft tissue, sleep difficulties, tiredness and headaches.2

In Ayurveda, fibromyalgia can be compared with the symptom Angamarda (body ache), which is caused due to two major reasons:3,4

1) Disturbance in nervous system function (Vata dosha imbalance in ayurveda) and,

2) An accumulation of toxins and blockages (ama) in the body due to low digestive fire (mandagni).

As the nervous system become less stable, toxins accumulate forming the ground for fibromyalgia. Once these imbalances reach a critical level, often a further stressful experience or event in a person’s life triggers the onset of fibromyalgia symptoms. When the individual becomes more balanced and rested, the symptoms subside but when the individual has stressful events, poor sleep, poor diet etc., the symptoms flare up again.

Other common causes of muscle pain are: 2

  • Injury to the muscles, including sprains and strains
  • Overuse of muscle
  • Too much muscle tension or stress
  • Arthritis (swelling of joints)
  • Infections in the muscles
