Knots in muscles..........

Hi everyone:

Does anyone get big knots in their muscles for no reason at all. I have one right behind my came out of nowhere, hurts like crazy and won't go away. I checked with a nurse just to make sure that is what it was and she told me to ice it, elevate my leg, and take anti-inflammatories. So, I will do that. Can anyone else relate?

Re: Knots in muscles..........

I get what feels like knots behind my knees, in my hamstrings, in my upper arms, and especially my neck and shoulders. The ones in my legs and arms seem to just release or go away. SOmetimes I'm not even convinced that they're muscle knots. I consider it part of the chronic pain of fibro. I find that heat helps more than ice. Did the anti-inflammatory help? Advil seems to not even touch my pain.
