Muscle pain is diagnosed by taking a detailed medical history and performing a physical examination, and sometimes tests are performed to figure out the cause.

Medical History

Your physician will ask you several questions during your visit to determine your diagnosis.

Physical Examination

If you have a physical exam, your doctor may feel your muscles for tenderness and examine the skin for swelling, redness, warmth, and warmth radiating from your body.


  • Blood tests to check enzyme levels, hormones, and electrolytes, as well as for possible infections.
  • Muscle damage can be detected with an MRI or CT scan.
  • Nervous and muscular activity can be measured by electromyography.
  • Muscle tissue samples are biopsied to check for changes that may indicate neuromuscular disease.
