Painful to relax?

 I am trying to relax my muscles, especially my torso and back. I had a hard life with mental issues and I have been incredibly tense for over a decade. Now that I got medical help I am starting to relax but when I tried to, it really hurt. Like my body was fighting the relaxation. This hurt more than my intense exercises. Anyone had something similar happen and if I can do anything about it besides pain pills.

    Try going to YouTube on your phone (maybe get the app if you don't have it) and search for Guided Meditation Talk Down for Sleep and Relaxation.  Then plug in your ear buds, lie down, get comfortable and listen.  It might help if you put your phone face down so the light from the face is blocked.
