What causes tight muscles all over body?
Muscle stiffness typically occurs after exercise, hard physical work, or lifting weights.

Sprains and strains are the most common reasons for muscle stiffness.
What causes widespread muscle pain?

What causes pain and stiffness all over body?

Why does my whole body ache all the time?
Infections and viruses The flu, the common cold, and other viral or bacterial infections can cause body aches. When such infections occur, the immune system sends white blood cells to fight off the infection. This can result in inflammation, which can leave the muscles in the body feeling achy and stiff.
How do you release chronic muscle tension?
- Applying a warm compress or heating pad to the affected muscle to help relax rigid muscles.

What autoimmune disease causes muscle pain?
Myositis (my-o-SY-tis) is a rare type of autoimmune disease that inflames and weakens muscle fibers. Autoimmune diseases occur when the body’s own immune system attacks itself.
