All over body pain or aching can make getting up each day a trial. Minor aches and pains are something we all experience but total body pain which doesn’t desist or go away needs further examination. There are a number of medical conditions which can result in consistent body pains and aches, they can also be part of an injury. All over body pain can be mild and persistent or can come in overwhelming and agonising bursts, like all pain, it differs from person to person. The most common causes of total body pain are conditions such as myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia.
