Not to burst your bubble, Chuck, but isn't distraction pain actually nerve pain? This article is about muscle pain?? I don't know. I do know that if I take my Oxy IR with coffee, it works better, so I'm not knocking it!!!

Our bodies aren't held in a vacuum, so distraction pain entails nerve, myofascial, etc. pain.

From my experience in massage therapy, its very common for nerves to get pinched or irritated due to muscles being stretched too tight or out of sync with the body.
I worked with several clients who after recieving therapeutic massage saw a great reduction in their nerve pain and symptoms after therapy.
Thats not to say medical treatment is not needed but that there are alternatives to medication in a lot of cases or that some therapies can augment what medical treatment can offer

Please remember that coffee is a diuretic, do try and maintain a least 2 L of fluid intake in your body daily.
Best,
Alastair
