If the common self-pain relief method and remedy do not alleviate the discomfort, it is advised that you make an appointment with a doctor or myotherapist.
You should also do so when you experience muscle pain that:
• occurs along with a rash or after a tick bite,
• is accompanied by redness or swelling,
• occurs soon after a medication change, or
• occurs with an elevated temperature.
Muscle aches and pain can sometimes be alarming, particularly if there is no apparent cause.
