Thanks! I looked up the Rollga but have used something similar in the past with limited effectiveness. I love the idea of stretching with ultrasound. I am going to try that with my PT.

Thanks for the tips! As with anything like this, its a condition that can me managed but not cured I think. I've thought that Botox injections might help but it's not part of any treatment plan I've seen yet. Foam rolling and other types of rolling have never done much for me. I do need to stretch more and not sit as much!

Thank you for your response! I will seek out an MFR therapist in my area and will hopefully have some success. Unfortunately my state does not yet allow medical cannabis to be prescribed. I wish you continued success in your treatment!

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.

No natural or herbal substances should ever be taken in conjunction with prescription medication unless okay’d by your doctor.

Sep 7, 2018 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

I did read this somewhere and felt that it was unusual also. I read that the physical container for all the little capsules had the time release properties not the individual capsules themself. If someone on this forum would provide accurate information that would be great!

Sep 7, 2018 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

Please consider remaining on the 37.5 mg dose for another two weeks. I would then recommend 10 mg of Prozac for five days and then stop everything.

My experience and the experience of some others going from 37.5 mg of Effexor to nothing can be quite a shock to the system especially if you have been on it for a while. Everyone is different though as we know! Good luck!
