Maybe I should make a list at night and just make one big post in the day...
anywho
What do you guys do for what my dr calls "flare-ups" I call them being pinched. It's my by shoulder blade, middle back, shoulder and neck where it is the REALLY sharp pain and your muscles rock up and burn...
I hope you understand what I'm talking about...

And I mean non-narcotic solutions
like home remedies if you will

SJH, I have the perfect stuff for that! It's called PF cream.  It has ibuprofin, ketamine, ketaprfin, amitriptyline and something called carb.  It has to be compounded and you rub a small amount in the area and it works great!  Sometimes when I have a spot the pain meds don't touch, this stuff works.  The original doc who gave it to me said it was like trigger point injections.

Hope that helps!

Under and SJH, it has to be a prescription and it is compounded.  My insurance covers it but the pharmacist has to bill it a certain way.  I LOVE IT.  No other doc has ever heard of it, my first rheumy gave it to me and when I changed to my current one I just took the bottle in and he wrote for it.  The ingredients are ketamine, ketoprofin, ibuprofin,amitriptilyn(sp?) and carbazopine.  It is a little greasy, but a life saver.  My bottle says 120 but I don't know if that's in ml or what.  My thought is ask the doc and then talk to a compounding pharmacist and they could probably figure out how much of each ingredient is best.

Let me know if I could be of any more help.  It's great anytime there is something besides pain meds that we can use to help.

I think the Fascia is the body's connective tissue - ligaments, tendons, etc. stuff that surrounds muscles and connects them to one another and to bones...
