In one of the new pain recovery program days there was a mention of neutral sensations being misinterpreted by the brain as pain. I get this but what about tense muscles? That is not a neutral sensation and the tense/spasming muscle causes a lot of pain. I have been in a lot of pain in the last week and went to the doctor for pain relief. He felt my upper back and said it was severely spasming (it's super tight). I'm very stressed at the moment because my mom is visiting and triggering stuff. I'm not sure what I'm asking. It just dawned on me that my super tight muscles (caused by stress) are what are causing me pain and not neutral sensations being misinterpreted as painful. Any comments welcome.
