This is about the 4th week that I have had massage therapy for the fms and mps, and I can really feel a difference. I am fortunate to have found a registered massage therapist who is trained in dealing with the pain of fms and the knotty muscles of mps -- she does the myofascial release wonderfully. I have seen a significant reduction in my pain levels for some 15 to 20 hours between treatments. I go 3 times a week at this point. So far, I can only tolerate 10 to 12 minutes per treatment, but that has been more than enough to achieve more relief for me than any med ever did. I am never at a 0 to 1 on the pain scale, but these treatments have lowered the levels to a 2 to 3 for those several hours inbetween and that has been such heaven! And, thanks to the ZMA, I am averaging a solid 5.5 to 7 hours of sleep per day, on most days. So, I am really enjoying my life so much more now. I know I will still have to deal with occasional flares, but I now have more in my arsenol to fight them with. Wishing painfree days for everyone.
