Merry christmas everyone
Just a query is myofascial pain syndrome related to fibro , or is it totally different pain syndrome altogether.

Hi Have both and don't know which is which ,
some say it's all related and other say it's a syndrome by it's self, I asked my DR this question and she did not know either, which is not really helpful,

I think it is separate condition but has some things in common with fibro. I am fairly sure I have myofascial pain but whether that is all I have or whether I have fibro as well...who knows?! My physio does a lot of myofascial release techniques with me and it definitely helps. Myofascial tissue is the thin membrane covering all the muscles and tendons - the same as the membrane that covers a piece of chicken meat (not a nice analogy for me, as a vegetarian!). This tissue can get 'crumpled' and twisted and this causes pain. Myofascial release will unwind the tissue and release the adhesions.

Myofascial pain is a separate condition, so can exist alongside additional conditions or as a standalone one.
