I have had a severe fm flare for a month. My meds were increased yesterday, but my back, neck, and shoulders are so tight and achy and I can't afford to constantly go to get a massage. My husband is a PT and suggested the back buddy also called body back buddy. He said he has seen them at work. I ordered one from amazon and have had it for a couple of days. It works good at getting right to the trigger points. It's long and easily reaches everywhere. I'm glad I got it and thought I would share.
