    Erky, I think the knots are related to myofascial pain syndrome and can be treated by a very good massage therapist who knows how to work with trigger points. I suggest you read up on CMP a bit and you will better understand how this works. It is also good to understand how to differentiate between the CMP and FM symptoms. One good article i have posted before is

    I think that if you have regular massage therapy by a qualified therapist you will get significant relief. It makes a huge difference for me.

    It does sound like your CMP is causing the knots. There are two great books that you should have since you also have this crappy disease as well. "The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook" by Clair Davies, is the bible for self treatment. The other book is "Fibromyalgia & Chronic Myofascial Pain" A Survival Manual by Devin Starlanyl. You can use a tennis ball in a sock, a golf ball and a Theracane to use to get rid of them.

    I have this as well and they set up during a fibro flare so the flare will pass and then I have to work on getting rid of the trp's. If I am not in a flare they can set up as well but not as many or not as deep. Hope this helps. P
