Yes, sometimes I can't even touch my own neck/shoulder area with any pressure at all because it just makes it worse, for a long time. I once tried cryotherapy (massage + ice) and boy, did I pay!! Typically, it wasn't bad at the time, it was the next day. None of those massager chairs work for me, either. We are sensitive little creatures, you know. UNFORTUNATELY.
