I’ve been getting this bad backache, quite a lot, recently. Well, I’ve had this condition since college. It’s called Myofascial Pain Syndrome.
As defined by mayoclinic.org
Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder. In myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points in your muscles (trigger points) causes pain in seemingly unrelated parts of your body. This is called referred pain.
Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs or hobbies or by stress-related muscle tension.
While nearly everyone has experienced muscle tension pain, the discomfort associated with myofascial pain syndrome persists or worsens. Treatment options for myofascial pain syndrome include physical therapy and trigger point injections. Pain medications and relaxation techniques also can help.
It doesn’t attack all the time but when it does, it hurt like hell and it’s very uncomfy, like right now.
I get massage every now and then to ease the pain but it doesn’t last long. I should probably do physical therapy.
