Hmm...you really felt terrible for days after a massage? It has been over a year since I have had one, but I dont remember it leaving me sore. I will definitely make sure the PT knows about and how to treat Fibro.
I am lucky to have a wonderful insurance plan through work that covers up to 100 PT visits per year, only having to pay the $10 copay. I also get up to 30% off regular massages, so I think i am set as far as getting supplimentation for payment of treatments. But having the time and the strength to actually make it to the appointments among feeling like crap, working, grad school, babysitting a couuple times a week, and finding time to eat, sleep, and shower, I have little time for anything else in my life.
Well, I can only wait and see from this point. My appointment is 8am tomorrow morning and I am anxious and a bit nervous. I will be sure to report back to you all to let you know my experience and if I am going to continue with treatment or not.
