    Leubie,
    Hi....I have had trigger point injections before and they did help me.....it took a few days to feel better though.

    I have MPS, FM and Degenerative Disc Disease, trying to get a handle and break the pain cycle is the trick..
    I know when the DDD flares up it does not help the FM, and causes the MPS to act up....so I have had cervical epidurals,(for DDD) then TPI for MPS, which helps the FM...I also Elavil, Trazadone, Flexeril and PM doc added Mobic....knock on wood I feel pretty good since adding the Mobic....
    Have you had X-rays?? MRI?? I don't think your pain doc will get fed up with you...after all he should try many different things to help you feel better.
    I sure hope you are finding relief, those TPI's really aren't the most fun things are they?
    Take Care :)

    Hi, I am new to the injection of trigger points. I was seen in ER a couple of weeks ago when I awoke with severe pain in hip. I tried to tough it oout but finally gave in to inject it. I don't think I can evaluate at this time, but would be interested to hear other's experiences. BUMP
