I have fibromyalgia and I get massages regularly. It does hurt extrememly bad at first. It will gradually get better as you go more frequently. It will also hurt less as your body gets more adjusted to the treatments. Your muscles are tense and do not "like" the way they are moved around. Relax and be prepared to feel the pain until it subsides. It will get better. I didn't think that at first, but I am walking proof. Hang in there and keep positive.
