Summaries for Myofascial Pain Syndrome

MalaCards based summary: Myofascial Pain Syndrome, also known as myofascial pain syndromes, is related to fibromyalgia and chronic pain, and has symptoms including muscle weakness, fatigue and myoclonus. An important gene associated with Myofascial Pain Syndrome is LAPTM4A (Lysosomal Protein Transmembrane 4 Alpha), and among its related pathways/superpathways are CREB Pathway and Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) susceptibility pathways. The drugs Etoricoxib and Modafinil have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, skeletal muscle and spinal cord, and related phenotypes are homeostasis/metabolism and behavior/neurological
