Link Between Fibromyalgia And Peripheral Neuropathy

Link Between Fibromyalgia And Peripheral Neuropathy

Does anyone know of a link between Fibromyalgia and Peripheral Nueropathy, I ask this because now I feel that my feet when I walk are beginning to lose the sensation of touch. I am concerned about this as my balance is not good and now this has started to happen. Added to this my father developed Peripheral Nueropathy after a Thymoma cancer and Parkinson's, both of which can be hereditary. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I have no balance at all. N I don't know if it was Lymes or fibro but I can't feel much in my fingers toes feet n bottom half of my legs.
For my balance I have been going to physical therapy. N I haven't found anything to help the loss of feeling. My hands r so bad I can't feel temperature right. My son broke his arm n I got a bath ready it felt great to me but he got in n jumped out saying it was burning hot. Now that I know I'm just careful

I have both of these conditions. I have found that limiting my physical stress, getting enough sleep and rest, and full body massage is most helpful. As circulation increases, and nerves calm down, it really helps me. Make sure you are getting enough nutrition, and you iron, b12, d, and calcium are in good shape as well.

Thanks for the feedback, do you think I should see my doctor for testing, I'm scared about this as I have seen my father decline and need a wheelchair?
