After reading about this affliction on this forum, I realised that I was probably suffering from it. GP agreed that the pain was muscular but all routes to pain relief seem to be closed to me because I don't get on well with opiates; and NSAIDs are out of the question while I'm still on steroids (3mg) and I also have a reflux problem. So I am stuck with Paracetamol. I found a Bowen therapist locally and had my first treatment yesterday, but I feel it could be quite a long haul. When I looked up myofascial pain on line, all references seemed to call it 'chronic' which has made me feel utterly disheartened. Does it inevitably become chronic?
