Deleted the photo since it does not distinguish this pain from anything else; the image is arbitrary and does not furnish the viewer with anything more than a distraction
- i'm pretty sure they're different - i was diagnosed with myalgia last year but the doctor is adamant that i won't get M.E. - i think that M.E. is much more severe as it involves constant fatigue as well, whereas myalgia is just having problems with muscles [[User : han] han] 17:35, 5 April 2006 (UTC)
Myalgia is one of the many features of chronic fatigue syndrome, originally called "myalgic encephalomyelitis" (although there is little proof of -itis in either the brain or the spinal cord). The term without modifiers just simply means "pain in muscle". JFW | T@lk 21:26, 5 April 2006 (UTC)
- Myalgic encephalomyelitis is still the WHO's official name for this disease. CFS is a working diagnosis. There is no proof that the name ME is wrong. Guido den Broeder (talk) 10:02, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Some items of relevance I thought people should know. Tetanus vaccine can induce myalgia as can sudden cessation (known on the street as 'going cold turkey') of opioids (at abusive doses). I should probably mention that in patients taking β1-blockers this is not just possible but probably with tetanus vaccine. DrMorelos 18:51, 24 November 2006 (UTC)
- Injection site pain is a common adverse event with any vaccine and is not specific to tetanus nor is it "myalgia" in the usual sense since. Looking at  and the package inserts for ADACEL ( toxoid), Baytet (), and Boostrix (), I don't see any mention of any interaction with beta blockers. The injection site pain event is usually on the order of 10-20%. Myalgia is mentioned in the Boostrix package insert as having been reported in uncontrolled postmarketing studies, but it's not an AE that took place in clinical trials involving 3,080 subjects.Somedumbyankee (talk) 23:42, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
