Hello.....MiMi in NC....at night right before bedtime I can take a *hot shower* using lavender bath salts and this eases the pain and allows my muscles to relax too so that I sleep better at night....I am one of the FMers here who sleeps in a recliner....actually it has been since 2005....(not by choice though)...this is one of the *tools* that I have found to help my FM pain...I have a catnapper recliner which I love...it is very comfortable but I also sleep with pillows....so I am sleeping on very soft materials...

You might also try the Stopain Spray.....good stuff, found at Walmart for less than $8....I use this as needed...

Take care.

Yes, I agree that warm showers can help with some pain. I shower every morning soon after I get up to loosen my stiff muscles also and it helps get me through the day.,

Yes this is a tool in the toolbox, with many others. If I have a headache in this, I wash my hair too...the massage of the scalp and wamth to the back neck muscles helps so much with the meds.

This is an adjunct to the medical therapy we take..

Absolutely right. Nancy B
