I've had neck and shoulder pain for 6 months now. The PTs say that the muscles in my shoulders and upper back are incredibly hard. I am on Skelaxin 300 3x a day for almost two months now. I get deep tissue massage twice a week for several months. I did one set of trigger point injections.
What I'm wondering is if anyone has experience with this. The theory is that the muscles are guarding the source of my pain so they have to break up the hard tense muscles so we find out what is really happening.
Even with all of these treatments my pain is still there. I am sure it is much less because if I am late with a dose I know it right away and at night I can't sleep.
Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.
