    Muscle Stiffness Overview
    Muscle stiffness is when your muscles feel tight and contracted, rather than relaxed, when they’re at rest. Muscle stiffness may limit your range of motion.

    Muscles may feel stiff after exercise, repetitive motion, or prolonged periods of inactivity. Mild muscle stiffness and muscle aches and pains are fairly common and can be easily treated. Home treatments include application of heat and cold, along with rest and gentle massage.

    You can help prevent muscle stiffness with simple stretching exercises and regular physical activity.

    Severe muscle stiffness is also known as muscle spasticity. This can interfere with movements, including walking and speaking. Chronic muscle stiffness can be a symptom of a variety of conditions, including fibromyalgia and lupus.

    If muscle stiffness lasts for more than three days or is accompanied by other symptoms, like fever or shortness of breath, seek prompt medical attention.

    Causes of Muscle Stiffness
    Sometimes muscles feel stiff after periods of vigorous use or overuse syndromes. In these cases, you usually become aware of stiffness shortly after activity. Muscles can also feel stiff after periods of inactivity. This can happen when you get out of bed in the morning or rise from a seated position. Also among the more common causes for muscle stiffness are sprains and strains, injury, or exposure to extreme heat or cold.

    Muscle stiffness can be symptomatic of a wide variety of medical conditions, including:

    acute HIV infection
    black widow spider bite
    brown recluse spider bite
    cerebral palsy
    generalized anxiety disorder
    Huntington’s disease
    infectious mononucleosis
    Legionnaire’s disease
    Lyme disease
    multiple sclerosis
    muscular dystrophies
    Parkinson’s disease
    polymyalgia rheumatica
    Diagnosing Muscle Stiffness
    Mild muscle stiffness is no cause for alarm. However, you should call your doctor if:

    muscle stiffness lasts more than three days
    you have severe, unexplained pain
    the area that feels stiff has swelling, tenderness, or redness
    you have evidence of a tick bite or rash
    you have poor circulation where your muscles are stiff
    you notice a deformity of the area
    muscle stiffness occurred after beginning new medication or adjusting doses of medications, especially statins
    Seek immediate medical attention if your muscle stiffness is accompanied by:

    shortness of breath
    difficulty swallowing
    muscle weakness
    partial or full paralysis
    high fever
    stiff neck
    sudden weight gain or water retention
    you have less urine than usual
    Be prepared to tell your doctor about your medical history and describe all your symptoms. List your prescription and over-the counter medications and supplements.

    Based on the results of a physical examination, diagnostic testing may include complete blood count and other blood tests.

    Treatment for Muscle Stiffness
    For minor muscle stiffness, or muscle stiffness after exercise, a few simple home remedies may help, including:

    apply ice during the first 24 to 72 hours after injury or overuse
    apply heat after the first 72 hours
    massage therapy
    gentle stretching prior to activity
    regular exercise to improve circulation and reduce inflammation
    maintain proper posture
    use acetaminophen or ibuprofen to relieve pain
    If these measures aren't working, your doctor may prescribe medication or physical therapy. Any underlying conditions causing muscle stiffness must also be addressed.

    Preventing Muscle Stiffness
    You can decrease the incidence of muscle stiffness by:

    performing gentle stretches before physical activity
    allowing a cool-down period after exercise
    exercising regularly
    starting slowly and building over time when beginning a new exercise program
    avoiding high-impact sports and activities
    getting up and stretching periodically throughout the day if you have a sedentary job
    paying attention to your sitting and standing posture
    investing in ergonomic furniture


    what you just read is just a viewpoint on what 'might' be the cause, still, it is important to have yourself check by a doctor if you haven't done it yet to get a professional diagnosis.
