Fibromyalgia Trigger Points?

Fibromyalgia Trigger Points?

Hey guys i have a doubt,
Does the fibromyalgia trigger point have to hurt all the time, or like someone else has to touch them to trugger the pain?

The question came to my mind, because usually those are the places where it hurst the most, but some days there is no pain in those areas, and no matter If i touch it... they wont hurt...

My trigger points come and go--even ones that weren't in the criteria years ago. I found reflexology to be handy for those.

Again it’s fibro doing its darndest to confound us. So typical, it has a mind of its own.
At the moment it is driving me up the wall with itching, another fibro thingy. Hope it goes soon. Dexamethazone is the only thing that relieves it, but have to go on and off it coz of the side effects.

Wishing the best for you hon xoxo 😘

Trigger points are no longer part of fibromyalgia diagnostic criteria. Some of us don’t have them. I never experienced trigger point sensitivity or pain. I have to spots I believe they are trigger point areas on collar bones bilateral sometimes they feel like burning, about 2x2 inches area. That is the closest I got so far to traditional fibromyalgia trigger points.

Those points don't have to hurt all the time. They are just the ones they use to do their diagnosis. Some people are more affected by the fatigue rather than pain. Fibro varies from person to person.
