I'm sorry to hear about your pain after your massage! My rheumatologist warned me to never get a massage b/c of my FMS. I also cannot tolerate any kind of pressure to my muscles. I find that heat often helps the muscles to feel better. Also, light touch, like someone gently and lightly rubbing their hand on your muscles can feel ok. My doctor keeps recommending Reiki but I haven't tried it yet. Thats a massage where the person never touches you. I hope you feeel better soon. Happy Holidays!
