When my doc was doing the tender point test I had no idea what he was doing cause I knew nothing about fibro but when he would push on a spot I would grab his hand which is a natural reaction to someone that is causing you pain.
So have her do the test again and squeeze her hand as tight as you can when she hits a sore spot and maybe she will get the message.
I have myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) and I've not heard of cortizone shots or botox for it. I have knots all over my body so do they inject the botox in the knots??? There are some wrinkles on my face I would like to have some botox in.
I too am very flexible for my age but I was very much into tumbling when I was young and it took some doing to stretch the muscles so I could do the splits and flips etc. So when the pain doc said something about me being so flexible I explained to him why. I can still put my hands flat on the floor when bending over but my back lets me know it doesn't like it for awhile.
luv and hugs
