Fibromyalgia and tingling

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia and tingling


Avatar f tn Thanks for your response. I have yet to be diagnosed and I have tingling, numbness and pis/needles. I wasn't sure if that as common for fibromyalgia or not. And, it drives me crazy too! I can barely stand to sit at the computer anymore because of it!
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia last March. Since then and after trying few different prescription(Neurontin, Cymbalta) I decided I didn't like the way they made me feel and started researching what nutritional supplements could help. I resorted to taking supplements and saw my energy level and some symptoms improve. About 4-6 weeks, I have tingling (pin & needles) in my feet going up my legs and hands. My rheumatologists suggested I see a neurologist, to rule out MS.
Avatar n tn I have a stent in my heart and this pain and tingling seem to make my chest hurt also. I am very nervous and anxious about what is going on with me.
Avatar f tn I know several people like yourself is on something but they still have pain and the numbing and tingling. Have you been offically diagnosed. It sounds like you are one of the lucky ones that its mild, of coarse nobody should have to deal with this at any degree. All that I listed above is what I have experienced. Of course my other diseases also have very similar symptoms so sometimes I don't know if its a Lupus flare or Fibro flare or RA, or Sjogrens.
Avatar f tn Hi, tingling could be due to low calcium levels, hypothyroidism, vitamin B deficiency or neurological disorder. Blood tests to rule out these conditions are must and also MRI brain for diagnosis in relation with neurological abnormality. How old are you and any history of diabetes or hypertension?
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing tingling in my hands and in my face recently and after getting a physical done in February the only thing that was abnormal was my vitamin D level. Could this be causing my tingling?
997519 tn?1251239849 I started having a tingling pain on my arm. It climbed to my hand and back to my arm. Then moved to my legs. I want to know if this is fibro.
Avatar n tn Hi. Thank you for taking my question. I am 38 yo female. I have been very active all of my life. I jogged (til 1999) 2-6miles a day (most everyday), and I attended exercise classes about 3 times a week. I felt good. In 1999, my health went down. I have always (since I can remember) had muslce twitches. In 99 I began to have very sore and knotted areas in my muscles. I was told by an ortho that I probably had fibro.
Avatar n tn a year ago i devoloped pain all over my body, specially heels, ankles, gluteous area, sharp burning -like pain when flexing knees, shoulders, numbes and tingling at hands, leg and feet cramps, waking down stairs is painful. my doctor told me i had fibromialgia. (TESTED NEGATIVE TO LUPUS, RHEUMATIOD ARTHRITIS, INFLAMATION,) received treatment with cymbalta and lirica but no help. cortisone steroids relived pain, only. is it possible that the problem started with the b12 deficiency?
Avatar f tn I did notice this morning that the outside of my leg was red. I also have tingling and my right arm feels heavy. Could it be a pinched nerve? What do I do about my knee and also what doctor can I go to to make sure I have fibromyalgia or could it be something else. HELP.
Avatar f tn When I took Lyrica the tingling was reduced and I was able to sleep, but my liver enzymes became elevated and the doctor took me off of the medication. I tried Savella, but I became nauseated and my heart was racing. There was no reduction in my symptoms. If this is fibromyalgia, are there any other treatments that can reduce my symptoms other than the ones I have tried? Could this be MS?
Avatar n tn 6 weeks ago, my hands suddenly started tingling and felt numb. They also felt swollen, but actually were not. As time went on, they became worse, and it started running up into the forearm slightly. In the past 2 weeks, I am so fatiqued, my muscles seem to not want to move, or carry any weight. Now my hands burn, as well feeling pain to touch - and I can no longer make my fingers work. I am a pianist and teacher (nearly 45 yrs.)- and I am becoming panicked.
1073473 tn?1257840649 As far as medication goes, and I am no doctor of course, but anti-seizure meds like Lyrica and Neurontin can be very effective for nerve tingling and pain for some people. I take a sister medication called Topamax, which works well for my nerve problems, but this one can also cause tingling too (ironic) when you are first getting used to it. I suggest talking to your doctor about your symptoms especially if it's been awhile since you've been in to see him or her.
Avatar n tn I'm in constant pain in both legs and both arms but specially the left arm. I noticed that I lost all the hair in legs and arms and also in the underarm. During the night the pain is so strong that it wake me up and my hands and fingers are tingling and "asleep". It's being like this for few years. I have been dignosed with fybromialgia and neurophaty. Is this normal?
Avatar m tn Does anyone here know if there are any long lasting effects of meningitis? Also wondering if anyone knows if having meningitis later leads to fibromyalgia? I had meningitis as a child as has since experienced numbness of my legs and tingling and pain in many areas including some areas I won't even mention. I also suffer from horrible migraines and have had hysterectomy to do pelvic floor prolapse.
325405 tn?1262290178 But my sister has it as a secondary symptom of Lupus. She suggested that if my fingers and toes are cold and white. I should try what she uses. Prescription meds did not help . She did find one OTC that someone mentioned to her and she mentioned it to me I believe I got mine at Wal-Mart or the health food store it's called Astragales seems to be some kind of herb and say suppliment on it.
Avatar n tn Then I began having sporadic tingling, burning sensations and soreness in my hands (palm, thumb and fingers, especially across back of knuckles). This would vary by day and by hand. Also both of my wrists and forearms hurt at least once a week. Some good days some not. Occassionally I would also have days of random twitching in my arms and legs.(Bad one day and then gone for a week.) I went back to my internest who ran a metabolic blood workup, ANA, and SLE test (no thyroid test).
Avatar n tn I have Lupus and have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.
Avatar f tn I have been experiencing tingling, burning, coldness, and numbing in the hands and arms. Is this arthritis or fibromyalgia? Thanks.
Avatar n tn Neurological symptoms occur in about one-fourth of persons with fibromyalgia. Numbness and tingling in the arms and legs are common. The cause is unknown and no specific treatment exists.You need to see your doctor and discuss regarding the traetment options.
665881 tn?1248926997 s not that! Or maybe it could be fibromyalgia?? what is the tingling symptoms of fibro like??? ahhh this is sooo bloody horrible! PS i am a 20 year old Female with a 7 month old daughter just to let you know a little of my background and i don't have any STDS/diseases etc... thanks heaps, hope you can help.
Avatar n tn Wondering if my muscle tightness and pain is a symptom of fibromyalgia. My lower back hurt this morning and night, my back, neck, and shoulders are still all balled up.
Avatar f tn m certain your pains are very real and they could be associated with fibromyalgia, which is a very complicated and difficult diagnosis. It might be also a good idea to rule out a differential diagnosis "Tension MyoNeural Syndrome", something you may have never heard before, which, in my own observations and studies affects many sufferers who suspect CFS, FMS and other similar conditions-or even many who might have been misdiagnosed with the aforementioned conditions.
