Symptoms of muscle aches

Some people who have muscle aches may notice the following symptoms alongside the soreness and discomfort in their muscles:

  • stiffness and weakness in the affected area

  • fever

  • a rash

  • a bite mark

  • dizziness

  • difficulty breathing

  • signs of infection, such as redness and swelling

Some of these symptoms, such as a very high fever or difficulty breathing, will require immediate medical attention.

If the cause of the ache is a strain, an injury, tension, or stress, people will usually feel discomfort in a particular area.

When aches occur throughout the entire body, this is more likely to be due to an infection, medication, or underlying illness.
