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!!
All of the above and more. I think depending on which pressure point is the worst for you that is where the worst "pain" is. I also think that there are a lot of "pains" and I know they change and rearrange. Good luck
@A MyFibroTeam Member, yep you have all the ailments that go along with Fibro. I have extreme flu like aches/Pains all over. When the barometer drops my bones and arthritis areas really start ache along with my muscles. I too have Raynaud's, RLS, IBSD, migraines, Neurophy, hair loss, ridges on your nails, skin problems, seaver muscle spasms. Just having Fibromyalgia depletes magnesium from your system so I supplement my diet. Also, it depletes calcium and D3, and Vit B's especially B6.
Are you seeing a Rheumatologist? They specialize in Fibro, RLS, and Raynaud's. The IBS is for a Gastro doctor.
Try to find a beginning yoga class and tell the teacher that you have Fibro and she/he will adjust poses just for you. Don't drink coffee or any caffeine as it disturbs your sleep too much. Keep me posted as you get along on this excellent Fibro site. Namaste (Peace)
Pretty much explains how I feel most of the time, especially the aching.
Oh and how could I forget the Raynaud's! All these symptoms in a matter of a few months.
I do feel flu-like..even nausea at times. Sometimes I wake up feeling like I have a hangover- only I haven't been drinking. I seem to have a lot more of the neurological symptoms which is why I was so concerned- tingling, pins and needles, numbness, zaps, vibrations etc. I do experience muscle aches in my arms and legs also and they are very very heavy like something is forcing them in the opposite direction I'm trying to move themthem. That and along with the dry eye, vision changes, skin rashes, hair loss, anxiety.... Its a nightmare. I have a very severe case :(
It is more of an ache than a pain
I either have bone pain/bones are throbbing. Or muscle tightness/spasms. Occasionally I have nerve pain/shooting paid. I only have all 3 at the same time if I'm flaring, but thankfully I have a high pain threshold so I haven't taken prescription meds yet. Make sure you're taking vitamins, and drinking lots of fluids.
Hard to describe. all my muscles and joints hurt. very difficult to walk.
It feels like the flu×10. Sensitive to touch,I feel heavy. My muscles hurt. Sharp tingle,
I have all of those same aches and pains that you have described above, always aching and sore!!! The rest come and go in variant degrees of pain and of course some days are so much worse than others!!
