Myositis aka Pain in the Muscles


Myositis is a general term for chronic muscular soreness and is also sometimes known as myalgia. Back muscle pain is the most common of all dorsalgia conditions. Causes of muscular pain can range from insignificant to life threatening, so it is crucial that the patient understands exactly what is creating their agonizing symptoms.

A few specific types of myalgia conditions are some of the most stubborn of all chronic back pain syndromes. This is not usually because the underlying source process is that difficult to resolve.  Instead, it is due to the simple fact that in most cases, the true causation of symptoms can not be positively identified, making subsequent attempts at treatment little more than educated guesses.

This essay examines the enigma of muscle pain in the dorsal anatomy.  


Fibromyalgia is one of the most virulent of all chronic muscle pain syndromes. This epidemic condition has grown exponentially over the past 30 years all across the globe. Women between the ages of 25 and 50 are especially prone to developing fibromyalgia pain. The condition has no universally accepted cause or cure.

Most traditional and alternative fibromyalgia treatments are designed to relieve some of the problematic symptoms, rather than cure the actual underlying condition. This is logical, since a source process is not likely to be discovered.

It is no surprise that many fibromyalgia patients suffer for years as their lives descend into dark and lonely downward spirals. FMS cures are few and far between and have little correlation to any of the treatments commonly utilized to battle the disorder.

Tension Myositis Syndrome

TMS is the diagnosis named by Dr. John Sarno. This condition created historic precedent as the first modern psychosomatic condition accepted and treated by the traditional medical system.

Physicians are increasingly starting to realize the actual role the mind plays in the creation of physical symptoms. Hopefully, this trend will propagate and create a new generation of doctors well versed in treating psychosomatic pain.  Statistics are hopeful, since many doctors now cite mindbody causes and contributors to the conditions they treat more than ever before in modern medical history.

Although TMS doctors are few in number, they do exist. This gives hope to the millions of patients suffering with many varieties of mindbody disorders.

Myositis Conclusions

Chronic muscle pain conditions may certainly be caused by physical, environmental or infectious processes. In these cases, the underlying reason for the pain is usually easy to identify and rectify. However, when the cause of symptoms is not apparent or does not respond to appropriate care, there may be an alternate explanation for the suffering.

Some ongoing myalgia problems are the result of a psychosomatic process which uses simple ischemia to cause pain and related symptoms. Psychological reasons for the creation of these psychogenic symptoms vary greatly, but the recommended treatment is almost universal.

Knowledge therapy will help a patient to discover the true psychological reasons for their torment. Once these emotional issues have been demystified by the conscious mind, their harmful power ceases to exist, usually leading to complete amelioration of the symptoms.

If you have never considered that your unresolved back pain might be the result of a subconscious process, you owe it to yourself to investigate how millions have cured their symptoms with this effective therapy option.  You have nothing to lose but your pain.  There are no costs and no risks inherent to the process.
