I am new to all of this, sat at the traffic lights as you do, they changed to green, car in front didn't move, neither did we, the car behind did, right into the back of us. That was mid Jan this year, started physio for whiplash (bad back, neck, shoulders and a few other bits) but it got worse not better. Went back to my doc trying to get referral to chiropractor but he said no, poked me here there and a few other places, made me go ouch and gave me sweaty hands and said, Fibro! Nice to get such a quick diagnosis so no complaint there.
Read up what I could, joined a couple of forums to find out more from real people with real answers (no complaints there either). I have a muscle rub, cheap nasty one that doesn't smell as bad as the real deep heat and doesn't get you warm like it either. So, I swap to the real thing, no problems, no warmth in arms or legs, not over the knees but a nice warmth in a sore part of my back just under my ribs. Roll on yesterday, omg, passed the deep heat to Chris (other half bless him), same spot as last night please, its really giving me grief today (tramadol just not touching the pain). Within 2 minutes I was crying with the pain, then came the screaming as I felt my skin was blistering, poor chris didn't know what to do and I couldn't do anything, big relief when he grabbed a dishcloth from the kitchen and wiped it all off. My question is, has anything like this happened to anyone else? Is there a reason for it making me react like that? Never happened before. Have any of you found a muscle rub that does help? Or if not a muscle rub, something similar?
