Re: Massage causes problems

From: Patty


My problems started in Feb 2004. I went to see my ENT and he injected me with Lidocaine/ephenphrine. My heart started to race and my arms starting flopping on their own. Believe or not he was going to inject me again. That evening I felt like my chest bone had been bruised from the inside and next morning started with VV episodes and they have not stopped. I have been thru many tests now and all were good, no problems found. I see a chiropractor and the massage therapist refused to massage my chest or stomach area because of my problem.
