Does anyone have painful trigger points in the hips? The easiest way to describe this is whenever they show a picture of FM trigger points on the body, they always show the hip area, well this is exactly where my extreme pain is. My massage therapist says she feels like both my hips have small hard rocks in them, and when they are massaged it feels very painful, but good at the same time, hard to explain that one. But, if they are massaged too much, I am so ackey, and my hips actually burn, or at least my skin feels hot to the touch, almost inflammed. The problem is, even with massage, this never goes away. If the pain is severe, I can feel it down my right leg, almost into my groin. I have had cat scans, MRI's, nothing is revealed, my rheumatologist even gain me a Kennalog injection in the area. It did nothing, but at least it didn't make it worse. I also tend to get knots in my lower shins, which my massage therapist has been able to work those out, but not in the hip area. She also told me my muscles get shortened, which I still don't understand that one. Anyway, aside from taking large doses of NSAIDS, which I hate to do, but only the NSAIDS take the edge off. I was even going to ask my doctor if she would give me Anaprox, since I heard that one works well. Anyone else have this? What else can I do? Hugs, Chelz.
