I've been rooting around the Fibro 101 thread and reread the link on Myofascial Pain Syndrome.  I'm quite sure I have this too because when I get a massage, I'm lumpy and Victoria has to gently work on those spots to try to smooth out the muscle.  The massages really help me.
Anyway, there is a 2009 update of symptoms on that link and it sure sounds like a lot of us!  The  person who wrote this site is a researcher for fibromyalgia and chronic myofacial pain syndrome.  She is not a doctor.  She feels that fibro and MPS are two separate illnesses.  I've seen other sites that say they are beginning to believe these are connected.  Actually, I really don't care.  Just find a way to fix it!   smilewinkgrin   But, the information here sounds like us so I wanted to share it with you.

Thanks Sherrine for the information. I have the Trigger Point manual and it can really pinpoint where pain is coming from. My massage therapist would always find the ropey muscles in my shoulders and could get them to release. I need to get back to her!

Thanks again.

Thank you also, for your time in researching and posting this Sherrine! Keeping educated is our most useful tool in helping us fight the pain of this darn disorder.
