Muscle pain Overview
Muscle aches and pains can be caused by a variety of disorders. There are many infectious disorders that cause a fever along with generalized muscle aches and pains (e.g. the flu). If a single region appears painful, that tends to indicate a disorder of a muscle or nearby structure. If multiple muscles seem achy or painful, but not a high fever, then a systemic underlying cause is more likely.
