Did the shaking start today??? Maybe if you have D form the pills or being sick, some of the meds your body is used to just exited your body too fast to work?
Yes, it sounds like you've got another bug sis . . .sorry.
I do massage where I can reach and I use a rubber ball for my back by leaning against the wall and dropping the ball behind me. If you get it just right you can work at a bad spot that way. Or you can ly on the floor and have a ball under your back. . . but that is too much pressure sometimes.
You might need to be careful of a vibrating massage if you have neuropathy . . . not sure what that would do to damaged nerves . . so another question for the doc.
I have received massage certificates as gifts (yeah!!). I have to be careful if I'm in a flare because massage can sometimes make me fell worse. But I've found one lady who really knows how to work the stiffness out of my neck, hips and lower back. I have had some great relief from some bad hip pain for 6-8 weeks after seeing her . . . so now I just go for 1/2 hour (less expensive) and she works just on those trouble spots. Hubby and one of my sons are thrilled because they always know a great gift for me!!
I wish you were feeling better. Not sure if you have a bathtub (or just a shower), but if you are able to get into a nice warm bath, that might soak away some of your aches. A cup of epsom salts in there is therapeutic too.
Sending you some more hot tea!
