Treatment Ratings

    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Massage
    Not Improved
    Antidepressants, Stress Management

My fibromyalgia pain is all over some days and other days it may just be my neck and shoulders, or my arms , hands and fingers, or my back and hips. The pain usually stays for hours. It is somewhat relieved, but never eliminated with Antinflamator medication. Deep Therapeutic Message is great for it, but it hurts especially when they hit those specific pressure points just right. The thing about the deep therapy message is you have to do it at least weekly to get the full benefit and if you stop you loose all your gains. Stress really impacts my pain which makes my depression worse.
