There are a number of symptoms associated with MPS, chief among them include:
Pain in a seemingly unrelated area
Lower back or pelvic pain
Arm or leg pain
Depression, anxiety, or mood disturbances
Tenderness in the muscle
Restriction of movement
While examining for MPS, your pain management specialist will review your medical history, conduct a physical exam, and administer tests such as an X-ray or an MRI. The diagnosis may be identified as one of the following four types of trigger point pain:
- Active trigger point: : extreme tenderness felt in a location other than the trigger point directly affected.
- Latent trigger point: an inactive area that causes pain when pressure is manually applied. The muscle dimples or contracts, also known as a twitch response.
- Secondary trigger point: An irritable point in a muscle that may activate due to a trigger point in another muscle.
- Satellite myofascial point: An irritable point in a muscle that stops activating because the muscle is near another trigger pain.
