@bustrbrwn22, First, May I add my Connect welcome to you. I can feel your suffering and am so sorry you have this condition. Now for my good news. Myofascial Release MFR is my life, limb, and mind savior. I have an appointment every Thursday. Some restrictions are resolved In one session. Others are repetitive and require frequent attention. When you study the fascia and how it works in the body, you will see why it can tighten and be the cause of pain.
I have to leave now but I’ll be back. In the meantime you may receive some information from @jenniferhunter. You can also learn to do some MFR at home. Perhaps @rwinney can tell you more about how MFR helps her. The website is http://www.myofascialrelease.com. On YouTube, look for “Strolling under the skin”.
Be safe and protected.
