    I have had the worst pain for almost 2 weeks, it in my shoulders goes up to my neck and now into my jaw, what can I do for this? I just can't take it anymore...I can't get in to see my Dr for at least 3-4 weeks..should I go to the walk in clinic...wondering if they would be able to prescribe anything...i know I'm tense but I just CAN"T untense myself no what what and how I try..this pain just makes me NOT want to be here anymore. Any suggestions?

    I have that kind of pain also. Heat helps me more then anything. A hot shower or deep soaking bath, a whirlpool if possible. A heating pad is great.

    Only one problem, its hard to accomplish anything in the tub shower or hooked to a heating pad ;-)

    I take Tylonol like crazy (no, I don't overdose.) I use a mild pain pill only occasionally since they make me itch.

    I'm going to keep track of this thread to see if anyone else has an answer.

    If you can't get a massage, I found a great little plastic massager at WalGreens (they also have them at Bed Bath and Beyond I think near the checkout) called Nukkles. It is under $5.00, and it is the best I have found.

    I think it has four knobby points on it, and it feels wonderful wherever you hurt. I also place it on the floor when I am hurting really bad and press it into a tense, knotted up muscle. You can't get a bad massage with it!

    Epsom salt and hydrogen peroxide baths in water as hot as you can stand it works good. I did that when I was first diagnosed a couple of years ago. I don't remember exactly how much, but I am sure someone here knows.

    Also, try pain ointment. I like Tiger Balm, but there are other good things to use as well.

    I hope you get to feeling better.

    Big hugs,
