I had a massage today for the first time in a year. I also had it by someone new, although the one a year ago was deeper and really worked out a lot of trigger points. This massage was so much harder on me than ever before. I don't know if it is because the as-yet undiagnosed fibro has progressed a little. I suspect so. I could feel myself getting relaxed as the massage progressed, BUT. But even medium pressure was uncomfortable to my skin and I was more aware of tender point discomfort. But I felt some nauseated aching after, even though I was more relaxed. But although she didn't work much on the front of my shoulders, I feel like they and my collarbone are going to be SO sore tomorrow! I am so tired and achy already. And it isn't really a good type of tired. Usually I have the "wet noodle" effect because I am so relaxed and could go right to sleep. Not this time. I feel like I've been through the wringer. I hope it is just her and massages won't all be difficult. I don't want to give up massages! Anyone else have a hard time with massages after FMS?
