Antidepressant medication plays a role. Heat and cold is also used in addition to trigger point injections to help achieve pain relief and normal sleep patterns. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) units may be of benefit. The injection of small amounts of botulinum toxin A in trigger points near the cervical spine has been used, although this is not currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
