Muscle Pain That Comes and Goes

muscle pain that comes and goes

Symptom – Are you experiencing muscle pain that comes and goes? 

Muscle pain that comes and goes may feel like an achy sensation. It may feel sharp and sudden caused by a specific activity. It may also be accompanied by swelling or tenderness – depending on the cause. It comes on as fast as it goes away. And it is likely confusing, especially when it disappears suddenly. So, what’s going on? Let’s take a closer look.  

What is causing your muscle pain that comes and goes? 

Muscle pain may occur from a variety of different causes. And a mild injury, such as a mild strain or bruise, may heal sufficiently on its own – which for some cases, may explain why your muscle pain has disappeared.  

Common conditions that involve muscle pain that comes and goes includes fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Fibromyalgia is categorized by trigger points and widespread pain. Chronic fatigue syndrome is a condition defined by extreme exhaustion. As a result, a person may experience muscle aches and pains that come and go. A cold or flu may also cause similar symptoms. 

You may also experience muscle pain after an intense exercise session. This pain or aching may last for 48-72 hours. However, it often resolves on its own. You can help guide your recovery via stretching, massage, or self-massage as well.  

But if you experience muscle pain that comes and goes on a regular basis, consider booking an appointment with your family doctor. Muscle pain is by no means normal. And you should get a professional to perform a proper examination or assessment to determine the root cause. 

So, how can you relieve the muscle pain that comes and goes?

It depends on the cause. Rest may actually increase pain in those that have fibromyalgia. Meanwhile, exercise isn’t good for someone that is suffering a recurring injury or needs to give their body time to recover. This is why is a good idea to seek out the advice of your healthcare provider or another healthcare professional. 

And depending on the cause, massage may play a part in your recovery. Massage increases blood flow to the affected area. It may help decrease your pain levels. And it helps eliminate tension and tightness in tissues and muscles. At Athlete’s Choice Massage, our massage therapists are registered and experienced.
