The constant nagging right sided neck and shoulder pain has been me since May/June last year. It could be Myofascial Pain Syndrome however I wouldn't know how to know. As has been mentioned here, analgesia barely touches it. If I take Co-Codamol equivalent I can get some respite but not for long and I don't like taking codiene.
Yesterday, as I was getting dressed, I thought about taking analgesia and then spotted the magnetic Copper Power Heart I bought a couple of year ago for my daughter in the hope it would help with her period pains. She gave it back to me, as it didn't work for her and I tried it for me in the run up to Carpal Tunnel surgery and before I was diagnosed with PMR. It didn't work.
Within minutes of placing it on my blouse around the area that is painful the pain had gone....yes, really! I am a cynic, so am very surprised and I wore the magnet all day and was pain free all day. I wore it over night and had a pain free night! I am still wearing it and all is well.
There are brief moments when I can feel my posture is starting a twinge but I adjust and the pain free situation continues.
I will link to what I am wearing. I may well be purchasing a couple more products in future but for now this is still on trial for me.
