    I went to the site for which you provided a link, (thank you so much).

    It specified that this was for pain caused by an injury to the muscle. I do not understand how this would apply to FMS? I frequently have pain but no injury. They said that the pain is relieved until/unless the area is re-injured. This makes sense if one is treating a sprain or a strain to an area, but this does not always apply to FMS.

    Take care, Annette
