    This is my first time here.I've had FMS for over 5 yrs. Diagnosed in 99.I've also tried alot of meds.Pscholigist,Alternative supplements,Heat treatment,& now I'm seeing a pain specialist that is using Trigger point injections along with heat & stretches.It's only been a week since he gave me 4 injections.Has anyone else heard of or tried this? My prayers are with everyone suffering with FMS & any of chronic pain.GOD Bless!

    Welcome to the board. Glad you have found our little world here.

    I don't take meds, or injections, the ony drug I take is small dose Xanax, I have problems with meds. So I take supplements. I have had Fibro for 20 plus years now.

    Others here have had the injections, and they will be happy to share their experiences with you.

    Just wanted to welcome you, and blessings going your way too.

    Shalom, Shirl

    You have come to the right place for information & support. I have only had the trigger point injections twice. I got about 3 months relief from the first one, and not very much from the second one. I think he might have missed the spot. Hope your results are better.

    I'm sorry there are so many of us suffering from chronic pain.This is a great web site.I'm not sure whether to continue with heat treatment & trigger point theray or not.Some times it all feels like a waste of time & money.I'm also tired of swallowing so many pills.I guess we all are.Sorry to complain.Thanks for the warm welcome to the site.GOD Bless.
