    I was recently diagnosed with Fibro, although I suspected it for some time after extreme fatigue and lots of muscle pain along with persistent back problems.

    I now find I have knots on my biceps and outer thighs all the time. They don't feel painful unless I push them. I've tried massaging them, but they are so painful to touch.

    is this related to the fibro and what can I do about it?
    I have a massage scheduled for tomorrow, so I'm hoping they can massage them out without too much pain.

    Yes it is related. Actually it comes with what is called Myofacial pain. I am in therapy right now trying to "undo" mine plus have a tens unit. Mine are painful all the time. The ones on my shoulders are as big as baseballs. I looke like I have been doing tons of weight lifting lol
