Marika, hi. The first thing that came into my mind was scar tissue; the second thing, muscle spasms. It was your descript
ion "like rubber balls under the skin" that immediately made me think of the few bunches of scar tissue I developed after a significant car crash that resulted in moderate-severe whiplash and a what was called a "twisting spinal injury."
The scar tissues bunches I have near the bottom of my spine (lumbar) can sometimes become painful to the touch. They feel worse when I was been inactive due to a bad flare from Lyme disease. Most recently I have found much relief from the treatment of my exceptional chiropractor. Also, my back responds well to general stretching exercises.
I'm not sure about
what may be causing your painful muscles, but I think it would not be unreasonable to assume that you're holding a lot of muscle tension, considering the amount of "balls in the air" you're dealing with, you poor soul. I have a hard enough time trying to keep up with our small one bedroom apartment for just myself and my husband, and I'm just dealing with my own disease.
I hope that you have a relaxing, peaceful, and pain-free weekend.
