blood supply

    according dr. Sarno muscular pain is the result of a mild ischemia created by the brain.
    But I wonder if that mild ischemia is the result of a particular distribution of the blood supply within the musculoeskeletal system .... or the consequence of the difficulty of the blood to flow throught a very tense musculature (with hypertension as secondary effect?)

    I assume I am confused !

    It could be both!

    For example, when I was in a car accident and my neck was in severe pain, I deduced that due to the injury my muscles were tense and blood was not getting in as it should thus causing my neck to hurt. So I took some L-arginine. L-arginine is an amino acid that increases nitric oxide production and dilates blood vessels, which increase blood flow. Viola! my neck pain improved within a few minutes. I usually take L-arginine to help with my workout routine and recovery.

    So it could be both. What is important to know is that it can be very painful but it is harmless and reversible.
