I am 27 years old female who also has hypothyroid problem/Hashimotos. I wanted to ask if someone has this problem "Myofascial Pain Syndrome "...what kind of symptoms do you have and what kind of treatment are you getting done for it...is it helping you? I am really tired of this pain and knots.
I wanted to ask does anyone know if they have this called Myofascial Pain Syndrome? Like 6 years ago I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, however, when I posted my question on this website about if I really do have this or not...someone told me I have Myofascial Pain Syndrome. That was the first time I had ever heard of the name. I researched on google and found out most likely I do have this problem.
I have knots in my body especially in the shoulder area and neck area. and when u press on those knots it relieves pain and relaxes it abit. Once the massage is done the pain decreases little bit but after alittle while it returns. The pain in my knots also send pain in other places like if i get it massaged in my upper back close to the shoulder then it shoots the pain in my neck and down my arm. I also get sometimes this shooting pain in one leg or the other leg and its very painful. At first I thought this was due to a nerve pinch but when I looked up this syndrome it says there it happens in it.
Now I have two new knots on both sides of head near the start of the ears but in the middle where the ear and forehead is. I am really getting scared of these knots.
Please can someone give me some advise to this I would really appreciate it. I am really confused as to how to get rid of this pain and knots. the pain is horrible. Thanks so much for taking your time out and reading my problem.
