Traps burn 24/7
It's been about two weeks now, my traps burn like hell all the time. I haven't worked them in over a week and it's not DOMS. It's a deep tissue burning and tightness, any ideas why or what could relieve it? I'm putting biofreeze on it several times a day to no prevail. Don't want to overdo ibuprophen.

Have someone give you a deep tissue massage? Have you been stressed out alot lately? Could be just some serious fascia tissue tension. When you look in the mirror, how is your posture?

Stress kills my neck and upper back. makes for a nice recipe for muscle spasm's in my upper traps and surrounding muscles.
I find I have to make a conscious effort to relax my traps and lower my shoulders a lot.

Came across this.
There are a bunch of herbs that help relieve muscle spasm. Devil's Claw is specific for your condition but may be difficult to find. Others are Hops, Linden flower, Passion flower, Skullcap, Black Haw, Crampbark, Valerian root and Black Cohosh. If it is nerve related, Vervain is excellent. As these are muscle relaxers, try them when you're at home first to see how they affect your "ability to drive or operate machinery."

Interesting find. Thanks. Lately I've just been popping a Soma or two.

Oh, and great news! I just developed another spasm in my left shoulder. I think this one has more to do with the a$$ whipping I bestowed upon my shoulders and traps yesterday.
soma, here I come.

I was wondering if you had tried anything else.
