BACK & NECK Hardness of muscles
My friend who is a massage therapist was giving me a massage the other day, and 5 minutes into it she said her hands hurt...that my muscles were so hard (and felt like they were melded together..she couldn't feel the separations between muscles) that my muscles were actually hurting her hands!! Now..my muscles in my shoulders, upper back and neck have always been tight..ever since I can remember..but to actually hear someone say this..and how bad they thought it was really hit home...i've never really had a massage before, so this was new to me....she said i felt like a plate of granite or something was lying under my skin.
ANYWAYS, does anyone have any thoughts on this?? Is this something other people deal with??
My chiropractor (whom I no longer see because I moved) diagnosed me with fibromyalgia...so I am wondering if Lupus and Fibro is common together?
