Tingling And Nubmness, Do You Experience This?

Tingling And Nubmness, Do You Experience This?

Hello team,
Does anyone else experience tingling in their head and or hands, and feet? I honestly want to so it's worse than the pain I sometimes feel throughout the day. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over 2 years ago and I still have so many questions. Please help. I feel so lost and alone at times.

It's sounds very much like paresthesia or one of the various forms of neuropathy and is very much a common symptom of FIbro unfortunately

Dealing with it is usually with the usual Fibro meds Gabapentin, Lyrica amitriptyline tho some say it can be the cause of it, other say makes it worse.
Alternative therapies can be helpful like acupuncture or acupressure sessions, and supplements like B1, B12

Also try body brushing to desensitise nerve endings and increase circulation

Hope this helps and gentle hugs xx

Left foot numbness was my first indication and then it went widespread to both of my feet and hands.

I used to get this all the time. Not sure which of the supplements has helped, but I am much better. In the winter is another story.

Numbness and tingling is when it first started. Left foot numbness and then started to go widespread.
