Does anybody know anything that helps? I have read a lot but can't seem to find much! I have tried heating pads, Epsom salt bath and Motrin. The bath helps the most.. But it has been going on for months. Thanks so much.

Have you discussed this with your doctor?
Maybe he can give you something for the inflamation?

Yes thanks. I am on a round of prednisone, but strangely it doesn't appear to be doing anything.

I'm sorry. I have it too. Yuck. I just vacuumed and now my costo is screaming at me. The only thing that seems to help for me is really resting and not doing much of any lifting or manual labor. Heat helps me feel a little better, but I have not found anything that makes it much better.
