Avatar f tn Trigger point injections by a physiatrist may be a great benefit to you as trigger points are the main cause of myofascial pain syndrome (aka severe muscular pain). I also have myofascial pain syndrome. I find that along with a muscle relaxer and antidepressant, Theracane therapy helps tremendously. A Theracane is used to apply deep pressure on the trigger points. Repeated frequent use reduces the pain signals released by the trigger points.
Avatar f tn Migraines are caused by not getting enough blood to your head. Push on pressure points on the back of your neck. Increase pressure until it hurts but is withstandable. About 3 minutes of this and slowly release pressure while messaging. Keep eyes closed and don't move for 5 more minutes. Works for me every time no pills.
Avatar m tn At this point, I’m considering whether the muscles and joints in my neck were injured in the accident, causing trigger points to form which have simply not be dealt with properly since that time. From what I’ve read, trigger points can certainly refer headache pain to the areas where I usually experience headaches. However, I am uncertain about the dizziness involved. My question is: Does anybody with trigger points in the neck also suffer with symptoms of dizziness or vertigo?

Avatar m tn He said that its due to neck spasm. He investigated my pain using pressure points on my neck, adjusted my neck and suggested below things. 1) Epsom bath 10 minutes/ 2 times a day 2) Ice pack on neck 2 minutes on and 1 minute off for 15 minutes / 3 times a day. 3) Adjustment of my computer screen so that my neck wont get strain. 4) Use left hand for mouse movements at home (any how I will use right hand at office) He asked me to have 3 more visits next week (Mon, Wed, Fri).
1060036 tn?1259188076 When i try to focus the pressure gets worse at some points, and i only get it when going to class, or driving, when im fairly relaxed i don't feel it as much. how can i get it to go away, are there pressure points, or relaxation techniques or something? Also can this be associated with my anxiety since it started when it did? By the way, the pressure is in my nose, forehead, and sometimes the the top of my head.
Avatar m tn It involves pressing on small, constricted, sore points that trigger pain in areas away from the points. For example, a tense, painful know of muscles in the neck might cause pain in the head. In this case, myotherapy would involve pressing on the knotted neck muscles to decrease pain in the head. Myotherapy was developed by prominent physical therapist Bonnie Prudden in 1976. It is very similar to acupressure.
Avatar n tn What you have sounds a lot like TMJ. You have to press on muscles of your face to look for sore points. To get some relief you can try massaging the sore muscles. Massaging the muscles does not help every one. Also if the procedure is nor correct, then it can further aggravate the problem. Then massage these points with short strokes. To massage the masseter muscles on each side of your jaw, place your thumb inside your mouth and squeeze the thick muscle in your cheek with your fingers.
Avatar m tn LLLT gave more effective short-term relief of arm pain and increased range of neck extension in patients with acute neck pain with radiculopathy in comparison to the placebo procedure." Another study concluded it was effective in patients with variety of musculoskeletal pain including fibromyalgia. Why do you ask?

I'm a 38 year old white male, i have GERD which i take nexium for, id like to think it wasnt a heart attack but everything i read points to those symptoms.
Avatar f tn I was hoping that someone would be able to suggest some type of pain relief other than acetametaphin or ibuprofen. I am really struggling with the pain in my neck & base of the head. My new Cine-MRI is not until Feb.8 & followup neurosurgeon appt. on Feb.14...started with numbness & tingling under my right arm today & the "foggy",dry, inflammed feeling in my eyes has gotten worse over the last couple of days. Can someone please help me???

I am 10 months post op on Dec. 16 Does anyone have any suggestions that i can try? i have been in pain like this the past 3 day and on and off for a week before that. i have to get some relief sometime soon, i cant take it.
Avatar f tn Has anyone found any tips or tricks to help relieve some of these symptoms? Head pressure, neck pain, and balance problems make everything so difficult. I'm a newbie here and don't see the neuro until April. I haven't been given a dx yet but my gp says that my MRI shows that the base of my brain is extending down into my spinal column. It really looks to me like I have chiari and I just want some relief!

Avatar n tn I have stopped taking the pain relievers due to the side effects and now live in constant pain. The only relief that I can get at all is by putting pressure on the area that hurts and the pain comes back immediately upon removing the pressure. Any help that you can offer will be appreciated as the doctors are at a stalled point and we need some fresh ideas. Thank you for your help.
Avatar f tn Another thing that helps is vibration. Use anything that vibrates ( even kids toys ) and hold them to the pressure points. Cheek bones, sides of nose, temples, eyebrow area, etc.
Avatar n tn Another thing to note - Very seldom do these "points" cause any real pain, just pressure. Sometimes they do feel like a bruise, however - Like the aftermath of hitting your head on an open cupboard or something...
