The smooth muscles which are generally found within the walls of the hollow organs like that stomach, blood vessels and bladder; they generally play a very vital role in proper and normal functioning of these organs.

The heart in made up of cardiac muscles helps in pumping blood throughout the body.

Muscle ache is most frequently related to tension, overuse, or muscle injury from exercise or physically-demanding work.

In these situations, the pain tends to involve specific muscles and starts during or just after the activity.

It is usually obvious which activity is causing the pain.

Muscle ache also can be a sign of conditions affecting your whole body, like some infections (including the flu) and disorders that affect connective tissues throughout the body (such as lupus).
