Arrange for a good long relaxing massage. It is a guess. I suspect that the pains are due to muscles over tightening. If it is the massage by relaxing over tight muscle will reduce the pain and discomfort. This is likely to be a temporary fix.

This is still leaves the problem of loss of good muscle behaviour which needs to be remedied and controlled. Unfortunately muscle control problems is an area that the medical people know very little about. It is worth looking at taking up yoga to help with tacking the problem of muscle over tightness. This will give you a chance to see if some sort of physical activity practice helps bring the issue under control or whether further investigation of the nervous system is warranted.

You need to investigate yourself.

Hope this helps.


A very long shot, but might connect. Especially as you mentioned Fobromyalgia, I had fibro type pains, tiredness and brain fog.

I had nerve shocks all over, likened to electric shocks every few seconds which was down to low thyroid, also I had low, grey area B12 bloods.

Also B12Deficiency and Low thyroid (Hypothyroidism) mimic each other. (You can have both.)

Can you get a print out of your last bloods done and their ranges printed off ? there are grey areas in both B12 Deficiency and Low thyroid that Doctors overlook or miss.

My fibro pains went overnight once I was optimally medicated with Levothyroxine.

Pop up your results on Thyroid Uk on here for other members to help you.

Even if just to rule out both Low thyroid and B12 Deficiency.
