Trigger Points without Fibro?
1 Replies
KSCam - February 22

2 months ago I woke up with problems swallowing. While that has seemed to calm down now, I went through 2 months of rapid weight loss.
Now I am finding that I have developed many painful trigger points particularly in the right hip and thigh. I wake up at night and it completely numb and burning. The other spots are tender but not as acute, but it feels like every day there is a new spot. I am not overly tired but generally run down (sore throat, nasal drip). I am afraid that it is the onset of fibro as my blood work appears normal.
Is it possible to develop the triggerpoints without full fibro? I don't see any other illnesses that mimic that symptom.

Thanks

Trigger points develop in everyone. It seems those afflicted with Fibro have a more acute sensitivity to them. Paul Ingraham of saveyourself.ca has probably the best information available but 347 page tutorial costs $15. he does have useful information about trigger points on his blog for free.

The use of tennis ball therapy and foam rollers is highly recommended for myofascial release and there is a special massage pillow that you can lay on or sit on called a shiatsubag. It is filled with 3.5" dense round foam balls and works fantastic. They have a special Fibro version with only softer balls, because the harder ones provide too much penetration for acute cases.
