1) Anorectal pain is very heterogeneous and can range from mild discomfort secondary to myofascial pain, to incapacitating pain with life-threatening consequences, such as in the case of abscess formation.
12 On the basis of clinical symptoms and signs, the most frequently presented neck pain cases are of trapezius myalgia (38%), tension neck syndrome (17%) and cervicalgia (17%), whereas myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) of neck and shoulder,13 and development of myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) on trapezius have also been suggested to be causal pathways for pain.
The chronic myofascial pain and dysfunction syndrome (MFPDS) signs and symptoms are pain in the face, limited mouth opening, muscle tenderness, deviation of the jaw on opening, noises in the TMJ, and pain in and around TMJ area.
In this study, we intended to evaluate the epidemiology of pain in and around the shoulder joint complex which included articular pain like adhesive capsulitis, acromioclavicular joint arthritis, sternoclavicular joint arthritis and soft tissue rheumatic symptoms around shoulder joint complex like regional myofascial pain around shoulder joint complex, rotator cuff disease and bursitis, neurological conditions which presented as pain around the shoulder joint complex like C5 radiculopathy and plexitis, and miscellaneous conditions like malignancy which presented with pain around shoulder.
In addition, AWS-related shoulder ROM restrictions can lead to painful conditions, such as rotator cuff disease, frozen shoulder, and myofascial pain syndrome.
The most common missed diagnosis in the IC patient is pelvic floor dysfunction that results in a hypertonic contracted state of the levator muscles--a chronic spasm, in essence--that in turn leads to decreased muscle function, increased myofascial pain, and myofascial trigger points (Curr Urol Rep.

They address pain terminology, epidemiology, and basic science mechanisms, as well as differences associated with sex, gender, age, and genetic determinants of variability; management through education, exercise, electrical stimulation, physical agents, and manual therapy; an interdisciplinary approach involving medical and psychological management; and common syndromes, such as myofascial pain, fibromyalgia, spinal pain, migraine, temporomandibular disorder, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, neuropathic pain, and complex regional pain syndrome, with discussion of an evidence-based approach to medical, psychological, and physical therapy management for each.
