Hi Mr T, I found a great article about MPS and FMS that Sherrine included in her fibro 101 thread. I have both MPS and FMS. I have knots and trigger points all over my body. I get massage therapy to break up the knots but they come right back.
Rose's post is very good about MPS. It is strange when you can push on one TRP and have pain some other place on the body but it happens.
Some doctors believe FMS and MPS is the same thing. You could very well have both. I'm sure there are a lot of people with fibro that does have MPS and haven't been dxd.
I hope you have better luck with a translator. That would be frustrating when they don't understand what you are saying.
Try not to stress over all this. Stress is going to make fibro and or MPS worse.
I use xanax to sleep cause I really don't want to try the sleep meds that are out there. The only thing I take for pain most days is 4000 mg of tylenol. Try taking a nice hot shower or bath before you go to bed, moist heat is our friend. Turn soft music on or the tv to distract your mind at bedtime so your not thinking about all this. I sleep with the tv on but I don't know what tv is like over there.
Good luck and stay calm.
luv and hugs
