    What's New in Myofascial pain syndrome

    I'm new here!

    Hi, my name is Janis22. I’m new to The Mighty and look forward to sharing my story. Due to long term pain, I have had epidural injections which has helped me. This is after five years of pain and falling many times flat on my face. Because of falling now I am nervous and anxious to walk and use a Rollator as I have a fear of falling even though I can walk in my house. Because of this and because I moved away from my friends a number of years ago, I don’t have any friends other than my sister who lives nearby. I am feeling very lonely as I always have had a lot of friends and I do not have that now. I feel like I need a friend and I can’t go out to make them. I have always been a very social person. I actually can drive but then when I get there I’m too afraid to walk. I used to be normal. What the heck happened!? I need a kind friend and would like to be a kind and fun friend in return!

    Hey all.

    I’ve had a fibro diagnosis for 11 years. It’s been tossed around that I have myofascial pain syndrome as well. Recently I’ve started PT for the millionth time and this time seems more hopeful to be honest. We’ve tried dry needling this time and it sent me into one of the worst flares in a while. I haven’t had normal range of motion in two weeks and it cracks every time I move it. Super tight muscles, huge hard as rock knots and headaches all day everyday. I have a theracane and use hot and cold. Literally nothing works. No relief what so ever. I’ve had trigger point injections multiple times as well. Does it ever get better? I’m a very motivated patient and will do anything to feel better. I’ve done meds, diets, PT, swimming, exercising, stretching, trigger point injections, cortisone shots. Literally everything I can think of. Am I doomed? I hate life. I have three children that are high needs. My husband can’t tough me without being in pain. I’m tired of pain medication. Eventually trying medical cannabis soon. Any input or advice appreciated. #MyofascialPainSyndrome #Fibromyaliga #triggerpoints #Lumbarfusion #CarAccident #MedicalCannabis #PainManagement

    I just need to vent!

    I just need to vent a little. I'm in quite a bit of pain and very, very anxious right now. My #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder is being a f***ing son of a b***c. My #PTSD is giving me flashbacks all the time. My #EhlersDanlosSyndrome , pinched nerve, #PiriformisSyndrome , #Fibromyalgia , and #MyofascialPainSyndrome is causing hell with all the pain. The air flowing by from the fan hurts my skin. My #BipolarDisorder isn't stable. I'm on a new bipolar med and it makes me groggy and physically very tired all the time. I yawn constantly. I would love to have no #ChronicPain , no PTSD, no #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome , and my bipolar stable!!!
