What Kind Of Pain Do You Experience?

What Kind Of Pain Do You Experience?

I'm newer to fibro and was wondering if people can be more specific when they say "pain". I'm having a hard time accepting this diagnosis. I have sharp- bee string like pains/ needle picks, burning, very heavy arms and legs and sore muscles. Tingling/vibrations. Aching hands/feet/ shoulders, wrists. Its just so many symptoms!!

Thanks for your support. I feel like I've been in this "flare up " stage for months. Probably from all the worrying and wondering. Its always a symptom or 5! I spent nearly a year thinking I was dying of a brain disease or something. I actually had a bunch of xrays today and a EMG. Hoping the results are normal. I've had so many tests and blood work and everything is "normal". It just doesn't make sense how this disease can his from science. I just don't think anyone takes me serious. It's frustrating.

a "flare -up" happens when things begin to settle down & you have reached a level when you can have times that are easier to cope with & more balanced , through pacing yourself & resting, & then something happens physically emotionally or mentally to upset that balance & your pain etc returns with a vengeance commonly known as a "flare-up " <3 There will be days to come where you do begin to feel a bit better or a bit worse ,it's all part of this dreadful illness .Thoughts & Prayers with you <3 Bless you & your Family xxxx
