Thanks I have. I also find If I sleep on a firm mattress I'll wake up in tremendous pain. Read my bed thread. If I wake in pain I'll walk around the house or in my yard for 15 minutes just to get the motion back. Movement seems to lubricate and ease pain.
I hope you are able to manage your pain as well.

AHA! Yeah, I've come across your 'bed thread'. Yes, I have a bed that works for me and it does make a difference. I also have a very comfy couch and I'm on my way to buying a recliner that will help. Even comfortable shoes make a difference. I understand what you mean when you say, "get the motion back". I have lots of pain in the morning regardless of what mattress I'm sleeping on. It's slow moving for me in the morning and I do things little by little in the morning (e.g. a few physio. stretches, etc.) to "get the motion back". But honestly some mornings I'm so bad it takes every thing I've got to get out of bed at a decent time, take my pills and get to the couch. I have lots of fatigue so that doesn't help and vice versa the pain doesn't help the fatigue. Things are better than they were and I have a good doctor now that understands and is supportive. Just being validated and understood is helpful in itself. Yeah, I hear you; it's not easy. Good to talk to people who understand. Take care.

Any body try physio. in regards to dealing with pain? Any pointers to keep in mind?

When it comes to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Chronic Myofascial Pain, what treatments / things have you tried and how helpful were they?

I'm not a doctor so please understand I can only share what I understand from my perspective. I'd hate to steer you the wrong way. I still have much to learn about myofascial pain. Unfortunately, when there isn't one way of classifying illness people can use different terms and criterion so it can make things difficult to describe. Hopefully the following is helpful and accurate enough to explain things a bit. But, a doctor needs to explain things and if you have access to the internet I would suggest researching this topic at places you would consider reputable and from professionals who are reputable in the field.

All Myofascial pain involves pain in the musculoskeletal system. Myofascial pain is a genereal name used to describe pain in this system. Myofascial pain can be caused by different things e.g. injuries, fatigue, etc. Some scientists / drs. call chronic (persistent) myofascial pain Myofascial Pain Syndrome; others call it Chronic Myofascial Pain (disease). In Canada we call it Myofascial Pain Syndrome but consider it a neuro-muscular illness not a psychological illness as do the drs. who use the name Chronic Myofascial Pain (disease). Below I've added some info. and a link that give a fairly good description of myofascial pain. However, the latest research says that Chronic Myofascial Pain is can be caused because the fascia (coating around the muscle) isn't working properly (this point is not include in the info. below).

"When you say that you have “muscle knots,” you are talking about myofascial trigger points.
There are no actual knots involved, of course. A trigger point (TrP) is a small patch of tightly contracted muscle, an isolated spasm affecting just a small patch of muscle tissue (not a whole-muscle spasm like a “charlie horse” or cramp10). That small patch of knotted muscle cuts off its own blood supply, which irritates it even more — a vicious cycle called “metabolic crisis.” ... A collection of too many nasty trigger points is called myofascial pain syndrome (MPS)." Paul Ingraham &Tim Taylor MD

All I've got to say today is, boy, some people don't get it. This can be one of the hardest things about chronic illness.

Especially if the illness isn't 'showing' itself on the outside. Just saying'...

Yeah, you are so right. Thanks for understanding. Joni Erickson has a really neat blurb about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome on her web site. It really is worth listening to. It's great!!!!
