Thanks for the update Piperpetpete....glad to hear you're still plugging along without any further bothersome changes. Might be worth mentioning to your massage therapist to maybe try going a little lighter on your massage in that area to see if that helps....perhaps he/she is just massaging to deeply for your body to take? I know with me, I can't take any of what I call 'tugging/pulling' on the joints to loosen them...or I hurt for weeks! :D

Sending good wishes your way!

My thoughts too ,Snowbird!!! I wondered if maybe she was pulling and tugging too hard. Interestingly enough, it doesn't bother my legs when she does it but yes, I will tell her next week to go easy on the arms ;)

Hope you're doing well! The "wait and see" approach still drives me crazy sometimes but emotionally I'm doing much better! I know some of you guys waited for many years before getting a definite diagnosis.  Meanwhile, I educate myself with all the great information on this site. Thank you ALL for being here.
