This may be a very silly post, so forgive me if I'm simply ignorant. That being said, is neuropathy often a part of MPS or does it at least seem to often run together? I would think with all the knots, there is bound to be some nerve damage along the lines. I had a lot of neuro problems prior to each of my neck surgeries & after this last one I complained about the loss of all feeling in my right shoulder blade area (which has historically been my major pain area...no wonder I thought I felt better after surgery). After 6 months or so most of the feeling had returned & I had learned to live with the rest of the "dead" areas. When it came back to life I kept telling my surgeon I was having not only the intense TrP pain, but a deep burning & tingling sensation back there. He prescribed steriods 2 times & it got better both times (the burning) & finally went away. Well, a couple of weeks ago, which happened to coinside with a myofascial release treatment, the burning, tingling feeling came back. It's back w/a vengence now...I'm not sure which hurts more, the TrPs or this crap. Even my clothes are VERY uncomfortable rubbing against my skin. Anyone had similar issues?

When stretches didn't help, he sent me to pain management. Two shots in my back did nothing to help the pain. I am now getting knots in other muscles in my body. I have done research on my own and have found information on Myofascial Pain...
