Hello all. I've been in pain for many years throughout my body. The doctor has mentioned fibromyalgia and has been treating me as such. Anyway, after a couple of weeks of particularly bad shoulder and neck pain I went for a gentle Swedish massage.
All lovely until the therapist hit a couple of bumps on my lower back either side of my spine. She hadn't felt anything like it. The pain was immense. She said my back was way beyond her remit and referred me to a sports masseuse.
She also advised me to go to the doctor. The doctor felt them, mumbled something about 'gristle' and sent me on my way.
So I saw the sports masseuse today. She said my back and glute area is extremely tight and knotted and went on to do a trigger point massage using her hands and hot stones.
It was soooooooooooo painful. There were moments I would liken to the pain of childbirth. Moments. But...
Hopefully it will help. The sports masseuse has high hopes for releasing a lot of pain, and I'm willing to give it a shot, despite feeling like one massive bruise now!
So I was wondering if anyone would be interested in updates as I go through this?
