Hello, sorry I haven't been around much, I have just been so tired. I slept through most of yesterday and am feeling pretty foggy today. I need to keep pushing myself to move.
I was released from therapy last week. I'm no better than I was when I started, actually worse because it has put me into a flare and just getting through the day takes all of my energy. The therapist was very understanding and wants me to consider going back to the doctor but she said that my next step most likely was surgery and I'm not open to that right now. I am considering getting a stablizer for my shoulder at night. The therapist said that it would help to keep my shoulder back and even with my neck but I noticed when I sleep on my side that my shoulder naturally falls forward and it really hurts when I get up. The therapist is going to call me this week to see how I'm doing (which I think is very thoughtful), I think I'm going to get her opinion on a stablizer. I also have done some research and found a massage therapist that works with fibro patients. She was highly recommended so as soon as I have the money I'm going to make an appointment and give that a try. I did ask my therapist about the trigger point release therapy, she gave me some information and showed me a few tools that I could use but I haven't actually tried it myself. Maybe the massage therapist will be able to show me more because I do think that would helpful to me.
As far as the densensitizing, I think it is going ok. Some days I can scrub pretty hard but other I need to be more gentle. I'm going to continue working on it, especially in my feet where it is the worst.
I really appreciate your concern and hope I will be able to check in more soon .
