What causes pain in the muscles and joints?
Pain in the muscles and joints can often be attributed to tension, stress, or overuse. Muscles become inflamed when they cause pain and swelling. This may make the muscle feel tender when touched. Overexercising is a common cause of muscle pain. Having a cold or flu can also cause muscle pain. If you feel muscle pain all around the body, then that may be a sign of a more serious condition. Joint pain is caused by an injury or because of arthritis. Joint pain that gets worse over time is likely to be because of osteoporosis.
