> *I hear you on this....I have this too in my hip area - and I run, so it makes for some painful days. Have you tried trigger point massage? It's been more helpful than anything I've tried.

I've done trigger point injections, Botox injections, myofascial release massage, and have every product under the sun. They work, but just don't last. I see a physical therapist once a week (I pay out of pocket) who does a combination of myofascial release, massage, cranial sacral stuff, Maitland and Paris techniques and whatever. It works, I feel great, but by the next day it's back. BUT, if I miss a week or two, I get really bad and out of whack. What he does is by far much gentler than the trigger point injections and trigger point release which can HURT! But I wish at times that someone here did trigger point injections the correct way (when accurately place, you get the twitch response) because there are deep muscles that sometimes the PT can't get to, but the injections would (you should see the length of those needles...). No MD here does effective trigger point injections. I've tried some, but they were ineffectual. Flew to Bethesda, Maryland a couple of times to see someone who did injections, but how much money can you spend traveling??? He was good, though, but it also didn't last.

I use tennis balls, the thera-cane and other things to help myself, but it's tough to do some trigger points myself and takes too darn long. I'd spend all day on every muscle. Can't live like that.

Glad to hear your kids don't have major LD issues. Have you considered neurofeedback for the ADHD? Some get good results, but it was a bust for both me and my daughter. I think we have too many things going on. I'm convinced meds are the way to go. We're on the right track now with our med combos, but it still needs tweaking.

Good luck to you!
