Hi, I too have myofascial pain with my fibro and am on lyrica 75 mg twice daily but am looking for any other help to deal with this pain. Gentel hugs
One day at a time.
Devin Starlanyl and Mary Ellen Copeland wrote a book a few years back called "Fibromyalgia & Chronic Myofascial Pain". It's been a great reference book for me.

Dream it. Do it.
I too have Myofascial Pain Syndrome,since I am newly diagnosed I am trying the Lyrica, so far the only thing it has managed to do was dampen the shocks that i would get in my face & body. I have always had mild symptoms of & on for years with no real explanation. I have to admit I was a bit frustrated at the answers I was receiving."

As it turns out, my myofascial issues were mostly due to a vitamin B12 deficiency which induced a mild form of anemia that affected those nerves. Addressing the deficiency alleviated the symptoms--odd, we were just discussing that on another thread!... hm.
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." Walter P. Chrysler said it, I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called t
I was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with myofascial pain syndrome along with thier fibro and what things have you tried to help ease the pain..
Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.
