Hi, Dwigt, and welcome! Have you been diagnosed with fibromyalgia? Just wondering because it affects the muscles, tendons and ligaments and we deal with chronic pain. If your muscles are tight and tense, pressing on them will hurt a lot more so I don’t do that.
It does seem like our muscles are weird and react more intensely when overdoing things. We do pay a price for that. Ouch! I’m doing a lot better since I started taking a muscle relaxer called Robaxin (methocarbamol). I take very little of it but this has helped with the tightness and overall muscle pain I have had for years.
Be sure to read Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro and you will learn a lot there. Reading older posts can help too. You will see that you are not alone.
I’m looking forward to getting to know you better. Don’t hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.
