Tens drove things up the wall, overstimulation
Physical therapy causes severe increase in pain with trips to ER for shots for pain and muscle spasms
Trigger point injections have helped
Over exercising causes greatly increased pain, lays you up for week or weeks
Massage made me physically ill. Will not do that again.
Ultrasound works well, after first couple of days.
Chiropractor treatments help immensely, again after first two days following the treatment.
When limbs swell, you just rice it. Have had to stay down for days at a time to get swelling down, then start over,building up activity tolerance.
Only narcotics can stop the burning pain in muscles.
Valium and nor flex help muscle spasms.
If you push any activity too far, you will lose, and eventually, just be layer up, either with heat packs or ice packs, and completely resting affected areas. The pain will always win, you will be forced to halt activities. It is a very fine line, to remain active without worsening symp
