Complex Pain Synd.: The knot and the pain are probably not related. The knot maybe a lump of fatty tissue called a lipoma. Your doc should give you clear answers. The pain is myofascial and the advil (ibuprofen) and opiates are mucking up your gut and your natural healing process. See my notes. Start a wellness program, add in vits and minerals, start acupuncture, get your wellness team together and you have to be the qb!
