Muscle pain is also known as myalgia, how it feels like it could actually be different for different people due to body chemistry or the actual cause of the pain. One thing that is constant about muscle pain is the feeling of pain. That one is a common factor to anyone having myalgia or muscle pain. The muscle lain may occur in a local area of the body or widespread (all over the body). The pain could be a dull one or extremely sharp.
The pain may come mild or excruciating (severe). The pain may just last a few minutes, or it may take a longer time. Fever chills could come with the pain, especially in the case of infection. You may have pain in your joints, as well as your muscles. If the pain takes a longer time, it would definitely cause one to be depressed because one would be very weak or fatigued, and normal daily activities would be difficult to do.
