    I do everything you mention in the video, and more.
    I regularly get massage, acupuncture, and trigger point injections (injections of lidocaine into the sore points) at the UCLA East/West Medicine Center. They help moderately.
    I take hydrocodone (Vicodin) as needed. I also regularly take another medication which helps with the knots: Carisaprodol, commonly known as Soma which is a muscle relaxer. I occasionally use medicinal cannabis. I take the products with CBD which is not psychoactive (you don’t get high) and doesn’t interfere with daily function.
    Heat is very soothing. I use a heating pad regularly. Also those rice bags you can nuke in the microwave and wrap around your neck.
    The important thing to remember is nothing by itself is a magical cure. At best, Fibro is a condition you MANAGE with all of these tools.
