Re: physical Therapy
I was diagnosed with Chronic Myofacial Pain Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and the beginning of Osteoarthritis 3 years ago and I'm only 27 (living in a 90 year old body). I have tried PT,(did nothing) Biofeedback, (what a joke I can't relax my muscle for 2 seconds) Massage therapy, (after massaging and taping me several times she gave up) Chiropractors, (hurt worse than when I came in) Trigger point injections, (worked for about 2 days) Botox, (to kill the muscles on my shoulder- didn't work) and many many pain meds, sleep meds, and NSAIDS. Currently I take nothing for any of it (I just deal with it) but I do have Morophine that I only take when I can't stand the pain anymore. The only trouble with that is that it doesn't take the pain away, it just makes you not think about it for 12 hours. I hope you find something that works for you and let us know if you do....
PS:The burning and stinging after PT is from them working on your muscles, and from the Tens unit.
