Hello, I thought I would get the ball rolling by introducing myself - I am the founding admin for this community, my name is Grace, I am 39, and I live in the beautiful city of Edinburgh in Scotland.
I have been experiencing chronic pain for 3 years now, and it has only been in the last 8 months that I have been able to identify myofascial and emotional issues to be the root cause of my pain. Since self diagnosing my condition, I have become hugely interested in the how fascia plays such an important part in the functions of the body, and the inextricable role that emotions play in our health, in general (the whole mind body connection).
I have been shocked by, and at times despairing of, the lack of understanding some medical professionals have about chronic myofascial pain, and at the lack, or limited range, of treatments available.
In a world where many of us have to traverse a lengthy and painful journey to get any answers, never mind relief, I am hoping this community will provide support, information, and advice to help smooth the path.
