One of the most common pains in Fibromyalgia is in the shoulders and questions are being asked if by treating your most troublesome shoulder muscle pain could lead to a drop in Fibromyalgia pain.
Some of the pain from Fibromyalgia comes from tight mucles, rope-like bands containing firm knots called myofasical trigger points.
When you press on these points they hurt and radiate pain to other muscles.
A team at Chieti University in Italy tried a treatment of two to four injections with anesthetic to treat a trigger point in Fibro patients.
For the group of patients whose focus was pain in one joint a combination of two anti-inflammatory medications were applied topically to the area with the aid of a tiny electrical current to help the drugs to penetrate the tissues. Others have had Botox injections in the same place and both have been successful in helping the pain in your shoulders with Fibromyalgia.
