    I too have FM and have experience the painful knots in my leg in the calve area and have been seen by several doctors and still no answers, the only thing that has been done is actual cortizone shot in the specific knot and it leaves for a month then back agian and who wants the shots on a regular basis.

    i have recently experience a knot in my lower leg, i had strained my calf by simply walking, i must admit, i am not in the greatest of health, after spending 2 hours in the emergency room, the E.R. doc comes in and tells me what i already knew, i had torn a muscle, which made a knot in my leg just below my calf, that was a little over a month ago, the knot is still there, the E.R. doctor called it a plantaris muscle, he also said that it is a muscle that is never used, if it is never used, then how did i tear it, another doctor called it something else, if you want more knowledge on these muscles, just google them, or google knots, you would be surprised what you come up with, and on top of all of this i was told that eventually it would disolve and go away, after 2 weeks of crutches i was able to walk 95% normal again, hope you get the info you deserve.

    Hello there....I too have had Fibromyalgia and CMP for over 15 years.  These tender points are awful, to say the least.  I am have been researching for years of how to help relieve pain.  I am getting some relief getting myofascia release massage at the chiropracter.  Tons of "good" water is a MUST for muscles to get oxyen and heal.  I hope someone can help massage the knots for you....every little bit helps.  Gentle and deep on those knots seems to be best for me.  Take care and hang in there.  Take it one hour at a time and be gentle with yourself.
