Myofacial Pain Syndrome
Hi everyone. Does anyone out there suffer from myofascial pain syndrome? I get it bad in my upper back between the shoulders along the inside edges of my shoulder blades. I have these stubborn little areas of lumpy fascia that I can’t seem to get rid of no matter what. Moist heat helps and so does massage but only temporarily. I’ve also had trigger point injections and dry needling also providing only minor temporary relief. Stress and exercise that involves my upper back muscles also irritates the area intensely. Lyrica seems to help a bit as well as narcotic pain medications but I really don’t want to become dependent on these drugs. I can’t get rid of the multiple lumps and knots no matter what I do.
