I don't think this has been brought up before. My whole back has been one tight mess lately. Massage last week didn't even loosen it up for long. I've noticed for quite some time that my muscles itch. Not the skin on my back but the muscles. So I'm sitting here rubbing my back on the back of the sofa scratching my muscles. smhair Actually, it feels very good and they may be loosening up some. shocked
 
Anyone need to join me in a good scratch??? smilewinkgrin

Marlee, for sore muscles, have you tried a sock with tennis balls in it? You can lean against it and it massages your back or whatever.

Can't say I have ever experienced itchy muscles. Glad you are getting some relief!

The only time that my muscles itch is when I take pain medications. But the tennis balls in the sock sounds like it would work good.

Best wishes for a wonderful day

Hugs, Karen

I'm not on pain meds so I guess my itchy muscles are strange. I said my itchy muscles are strange Sherrine, not me. devil
 
I do have a tennis ball in a sock somewhere around here. That sounds like it would feel good.
 
I've tried doing stretches but that doesn't seem to be what they need.
 
DH rubbed my back for awhile last night when we went to bed and that felt great.

I have a back scratcher here at my computer, one on my nightstand by the bed, one on top of my refrigerator, and one in my purse!  I found a telescoping back scratcher for my purse and love it.  So, you are not alone.  That means that your itchy muscles are normal for fibro and it is YOU that is strange!  devil

You carry a back scratcher in your purse and you call me strange, hehehe. devil So if your out shopping you pull your back scratcher out and scratch away??? If we ever go shopping together the back scratcher will be staying home. I have forgotten now the other rules I have set for you before we go out in public. smhair

My back itches so bad sometimes. I can't even think straight. It's horrible. It comes close to being pain or
maybe it is pain. The tennis ball thing sounds good. I've tried astrigents on the itch. Alcohol, Witch Hazel, Benadryl,
knives (light scraping over the top) I can't think of anymore off the end of my fingers. Nothing works. I think
maybe I have nerve pain but I never know what is what.

Marlee, if your muscles itch when you are out, you probably rub your back up and down against a corner in the store...kind of like a bear, huh?  devil    I can see you now...your face of contentment with your tongue hanging out of one side of your mouth.   tongue  
 
I can go in the ladies' room and scratch my back.   turn
