There is a technique that can help alleviate the pain in your tender spots, caused by Fibromyalgia. You can push on the tender spots for 30 – 45 seconds while applying 20 – 30 pounds of pressure (with your thumb). At first, your tender spots will be very tender and painful but then the pain will subside. This can be done along with a massage. It is not recommended to try and treat dozens of tender spots at one time, but it can be helpful for a few of them! I have tried it and it does help.
