Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia leg pain and weakness

fibromyalgia

I like you had all the tests, MRIs never showed the excruiating shoulder blade pain I was living with or the bone crushing lower back pain, i have the gamut of symptoms sciatic pain, the joint stiffness, the lack of sleep, skin sensitivity, headaches, leg weakness. Let my story be a tale of caution to you as you navigate finding out what is causing your pain.
Hello after a year of unexplained debilitating leg and head weakness and pain, numbness I was referred back to neurology who has run emg testing and mri's etc..with no answers. To my surprise after having gotten a 2nd op from a highly esteemed Neurologist, he told me that he had no answers but wanted to 'think outside the box" and refer me to a neuropsyche test. I was kinda pissed at first because I have battled with Docs thinking it was all in my mind , chronic pain, other issues etc...
They were surveyed to assess their response to pain and noise. Of the three groups, the fibromyalgia patients were least tolerant of and most attentive to such stimuli. A 2001 analysis of studies on fibromyalgia, however, found no strong support for the hypervigilance theory. Immune Abnormalities Fibromyalgia has some symptoms that resemble a number of rheumatic illnesses, including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus).
I also have pain/tingling/numbness in my left shoulder area and arm along with these same symptoms in my left hip/leg. I have pain just under my left breast that sometimes radiates into my left side. I am so confused about what is wrong. I could really use some help. Any suggestions?
I found a web site of people like me with all my strange symptom including muscle weakness and leg pains. So I'll be going for more test soon and hope this is the problem. There are still caring doctors out there, not as many as the uncaring ones, but..... Please e-mail me if you want to talk ***@****. Loneoak, there are so many things your muscle problems could be from, you need to see your PCP first and then specialist, like neurologist and endochrinologist. The best to both of you!

For the past 6 mos. I have experienced, increased muscle weakness in my legs, starting in calves, moved to thighs and now is in my arms. My GP has done full blood work, urine & stool analysis & ruled out heart/circulatory and rheumatoid arthritis.

I have generalized trembling mostly on the left side of my body and muscle weakness and pain. The fatigue is severe to the point where I can only do a few things and then lie down. I feel like a limp dish rag. I have trigeminal neuralgia, polymyalgia rheumatica, and fibromyalgia, but my doctors say it is not caused by any of them or the medications I am taking? Has anyone else experienced the same thing? What was your diagnosis? How did you treat it?

I notice that since I have been diagnosed with herpes my other pain (we don't know what it is yet but fibromyalgia and lupus are on the table right now) really started to increase. And it's not just the pain normally associated with herpes ( pian down the backs of the legs and swolen glands), it is all of my symptoms seemed to have increased since then.

It came on my left foot, then leg and sometimes right foot. Then it showed up on my left arm and the left side of my face 2 1/2 months ago. My GP ordered and MRI with and without:normal.

So, What can I do to relieve this numbness?

I have numbness that comes and goes, subjective weakness( all over but shows no strength weakness) But my leg is weak. Now I am showing signs of tendon weakness and have developed weakness after eating. It is hard to hand in there but there are many of us out here undiagnosed. We have to wait until new symptoms show their ugly head and can help connect the dots. Hang in there!!
By mid morning early afternoon I am usually pretty good, later afternoon is when I get the heavy leg thing going on and usually some pain too. I am hoping to get normal strength and control back in my left leg and I am really not that far off so I think it's likely that I will. I'm sure I will still get weakness from fatigue or heat induced weakness, but I think I'll be pretty close to 100% soon. My left hand is about 80-90% of what it should be.
Suffering both post stroke pain and chronic fibromyalgia at the same time that has made my life miserable.

Began with my right leg going numb and muscle pain in my lower leg. Symptoms vary in severity. There have been a few days since this started that the symptoms have disappeared and I seemed to make a complete recovery but keeps returning. These symptoms appeared suddenly a month ago and prior to this I was healthy. I'm only 24. The only medication I have been on is birth control (aviane) which I discontinued after the symptoms began.
So I can assume your more in tune with your body than average. You say you have pain and weakness. Hypo muscle pain if looked at closer is usually muscle tightness that never relaxes, this is felt as pain at the end of muscles where it tuns to tendon fiber and will pull on joints. An experienced muscle "body worker" or manual PT or therapeutic massage professional can feel the difference in your muscles if this is what is happening.
For me this unexpected journey into the domain of constant pain started in my left foot, then I experienced swelling and pain in my left leg, shortly after in my right leg. I can no longer walk more than 10 to 15 minutes before my legs give out on me. Once I was diagnosed properly and receive pain-management as well as physical therapy and hydro-gymnastic several times a week I have had periods of time that were almost free of pain but also flare-ups that totally destroy my quality of life.
Then I was at a store and bent down but could not get up, it hurt but was more of a weakness, but it increased to severe pain in knees, lower back, hands and wrist, ankles top of foot, shoulders and neck and facial pain.The pain got worse and I gained weight fast, it was water weight, I had fluid build up in both knees and shoulders, ankles and hands. I also have chronic sinusitis and a perferated nasal septum do to numerous infections and steroid nose spray.
It is a neurontin that works on nerves that create the pain of Fibromyalgia. I started out with a low dose and he has me continuing to add in doses until the pain is under control. Today is Monday and I feel 50% better. Also, Tramadol is recommended for pain relief with Fibro. He said opiates such as vicodin, oxy, morphine don't work well on nerve pain. Fibro is believed to be caused by over active nerve receptors in the brain so the gabba works to calm them down.

I currently have symptoms of pain, numbness and tingling in many areas of my body including face, abdomin, hands, arms, legs, buttocks. Lower back aches a lot. The lower back ache, front of leg pain/sensation (particularly thigh) and abdomin pain is new. I have not seen Dr. about that. I have RA. Many tests, blood normal except RF positive, ANA neg. though.
Lately I've had more frequent episodes of a sort of electric stabbing sharp pain that runs from the arch of my foot up my leg when I step down and radiating pain from my shoulder down my right arm. They did a CT to rule out brain bleed and ran blood work. She and her attending both believe it's MS and told me to follow up with my primary and get an MRI. I probably still have fibromyalgia, but this isn't it.
I am having private homeopathy which has helped with my eye pain and a swollen lower left leg (edema) and it seems to help a little with the pain but I cant afford to pay privately for other treatment. Luckily Dercums is rare but I would very much like it ruled out and the correct diagnosis so I could have the appropriate pain treatment. I think this would at least help me feel a little more positive about my situation.
