I've been suffering a chronic (myofascial) pain condition for 3+ years now and have tried pretty much every muscle relaxant, trigger point therapy etc etc with no improvement. Due to the deep trigger points causing the pain, my muscles have become very hard and when I move, they make a horrible crunching noise (like walking on icy snow) because they grind across my bones as they are so hard. The hardening of my muscles (predominantly my left upper back and left chest, leading up into my neck and head) is almost as bad as the pain because I am always so uncomfortable and makes me feel very rigid. I'm interested to know if anyone else with a chronic pain condition has muscle hardening similar to me?
