Does anyone have what I can only describe as internal vibrations?? It feels really strange and scary.

Feels like my body is vibrating or pulsing on the inside. It's really hard to explain the sensation in my body but it's like my body is vibrating or something?? Also feels like a kinda bubbling sensation in my chest. It's horrible as I can't seems to tune out of it when it happens. It makes me feel really upset because it's so strange. Does anyone else experience this???

Yes. I have internal tremors and twitching that feels like an electric shock. I don't know what causes them but a lot of people on here have them.

Has anyone else's fybromyalgia gotten worse?

I feel like my fybro has gotten worse over the last 3 years. I'm worried I'll end up in a wheelchair by the time I'm 40.
My partner quit his job to look after me and my daughter. This was supposed to be short term. I really don't see him or me getting back to work. My mobility is only getting worse and my fybromyalgia symptoms just seem to be getting worse and more severe. I'm definitely in more pain than I was 3 years ago.

Do you ever get so fatigued and drained physically that you are too tired to have feelings?

Eg I don’t care about some decisions
OR I just don’t feel connected to people as strongly as usual
OR I’m upset but too tired to cry

It seems to gappen in a fibro crash that I feel so little for things and it doesn’t feel like sadness but pure exhaustion.

tags: I'm right there with you I am so exhausted on most days that it's even hard to eat I have no desire to make decisions so hang strong

Sometimes the exhaustion just gets THAT bad that its like your body starts shutting down unnecessary functions. Hang in there
