My mom has arthritis and HS (hydrodinitis). She's always had lumps along her back and leg and now along where those lumps are she's having intense pain. I'd like to be able to offer her some help. We don't have insurance, so suggestions for home remedies would work best.
HS is a very difficult disease but it sounds like these lumps are not associated with it since the abscesses HS are usually found in places where you have skin to skin contact such as in the armpit, etc.
Could these simply be muscle knots? Areas of tightened, sensitive muscles? If that's so then gentle massage in the direction of the muscle can help, as can warm moist heat, and gentle stretching and relaxation exercises. If these are knots of muscles what you want to do those contracted muscles to relax and get blood flowing back into them. Good luck!
