    Oh well today I went to the pain clinic at the hospital I go to and they did my back and oh my gosh ouch ouch ouch, and I know that the events of the day and all of my other appointments and driving aggravated where the needles were.

    I always scream so much in the clinic as I know that they are going to torture me touching my tenderpoints LOL.


    I am going to stretch and take a warm bath. I was trying to finish my paper for school tonight and turn it in but I can't do it, my back and body hurts so much from all of my appointments and everything.

    Any tips? By the way I can't do the Epsom Salt and Peroxide bath as that causes itching on my skin. I guess a warm bath I will take.

    Please someone tell me that I will feel better later with this therapy?

    Darn no sea salt over here, and Olive Oil I do have but afraid if I would go downstairs to get it I might not make up so thank you for the idea for the future.

    I will make sure to have that ready to go next time. I ended up having a hot shower and hitting on the areas it hurt that helped reduce some of the pain. However I feel like the t-shirt

    Thank you so much!

    Yes I had the trigger point therapy with needles, no massaging at that place (they are that cheap) and they would not do any on my neck.

    Anyway I did my stretching and all, and I take some sleep meds but my body has not been sleepy yet. I used a massager for my neck. This was my first time in trying this out. I am not sure if they were very experienced though as they were student doctors LOL. You take whatever you can get.

    but not with the use of needles, it is deep tissue massage performed by a trained person. I get them weekly and they make a huge difference in my well being. I don't have medical insurance so I can take them off my taxes as they are prescribed by my Doc.
