Is this part of this? My shoulders hurt so much, I am so uncomfortable. I was just diagnosed three weeks ago. Is it normal to have burning searing pain, like you have stretched out your muscles without having done so?
yes and you will notice it may move to other areas of your body at times. it will also go away and come back. i suggest a good massage or some time in a hot tub. that always helps me. the most important thing is to not stress out and remember to breath slow deep breaths and move even tho it hurts. a heating pad is better than nothing if you have one and cannot get the massage or hot tub.
do some deep breathing slow and easy. pain is increased when our oxygen level drops and it does when we breath shallow due to pain.
hang in there, it's a trippy ride. learn to laugh at your body, it helps alot.
i had to do some looking for a private massage couple that works on a sliding scale. i started out paying full price, cause i could. then my finances changed and now they do me for 20 dollar tip (which they said was not necessary) and i get 2 to 3 hours of tandem massage. there are people who really care about healing more than just income. search for one with a sliding scale, you may be pleasantly surprised. i was.
ps. i go every other week. they offered me every week but i cannot take advantage of such generosity. i get one this saturday, yipee!
i get a lot of burning pain especally down my right leg nto my foot, my foot also feels numb when i get this. I always have that tender point acting up in the butt when i get this. The chiro told me it is nerve pin.
I get it in my chest wall and shouders also, feels like a major sun burn or a really bad brush burn.

Thank you all, I will look into the physical therapy part. Even my co-pay is high now, thanks to the insurance company's new rates, so it is tough for me to do anything. I've been big on the warm baths with epsom salt, but nothing beats a good massage.
