Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia pain numbness


1073473 tn?1257844249 Hello jwles, I am sorry you are experiencing numbness and pain. Did you say the numbness only happens when you lay on a limb, or does it happen all of the time? Sometimes numbness can occur with Fibromyalgia. It's a common neurological symptom of Fibro. I have numbness in my left foot due to nerve dysfunction in my spine. My case is somewhat severe in that I have some other co-occurring conditions along with my Fibromyalgia.
Monster ### FIBROMYALGIA SYMPTOMS Pain — The primary symptom of fibromyalgia is widespread (diffuse), chronic, and persistent pain. The pain may be described as a deep muscular aching, soreness, stiffness, burning, or throbbing. Patients may also feel numbness, tingling, or unusual “crawling” sensations in the arms and legs.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am currently on a trial drug medication that has helped my intense pain stop. However, I continue to get dull achy numbness nerve pain. Have you tried or will try alternative mediation such as acupuncture or biofeedback?? I am going to because the research for the medication will be over in June and I will not be on any medication, they alter you inside, not my style.
358486 tn?1294779988 this leads to Fibromyalgia, but not in all the cases, of course. It is also noted that those who complain of more pain after the surgery, have more chance of developing fibromyalgia. One more reason thought to be implicated in post surgery fibromyalgia is ..... the neck is hyper-extended while doing the intubation and this constitutes a neck injury! Hope that helps.
1033336 tn?1252509731 I also have nerve damage and shooting pain and numbness in my legs. I take hydrocodone for the pain and am also on lyrica. The lyrica does help keep my legs from jerking uncontrollably but I now also have pain in my knees, hips, back, neck, shoulders. and jaw. My muscles are extremely tight all the time. I take flexoral 3 times a day but it doesn't seem to help. My doctor now thinks I have some type of myofacial disorder.
Avatar f tn Sleep is essential especially for fibromyalgia or any type of pain. If you can get 6 hours minimum you can better deal with the pain. Have you ever had a sleep study? I requested one and I have sleep apnea. I also take trazadone. It is an older sleep medication that is taken at bedtime. You and your doctor can decide if taking something would help. To me your top list would be your headaches, not sleeping and pain.
1184051 tn?1264438908 Hi I am new to this site, but my doctor said in I probably have fibromyalgia about a year ago. I had an MRI done today and it came back negative. My dr. had me have the MRI because of increasing fatigue, tingling body parts, headaches, major memory problems! Now I have to go to a neurologist. I just feel that I will have a bunch of tests and they will say they don't know or label me with fibromyalgia, but do they take it as a serious condition?
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have severe back and neck pain. I had back sugery 4 months ago with severe pain in the surgical area again.

Avatar n tn I got on some more sites and read alot about B-12 (and its different forms). Lots of people with fibromyalgia report numbness and tingling like feelings and I saw where the B vitamins have helped them. I used to take alot of vitamins but as I began other programs I limitted what I took so that my clinical picture was more clear. I also read where most people have a normal blood level of B-12 and folate but the vitamin, whether oral, or sl or inj. really helped.
Avatar n tn i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few months ago and i've been monitoring some of my symptoms but would like to see if anyone else has the same problems. every month when it's that time of the month is when everything gets the worse for me. my eyes are dryer, skin, mouth everything. migranes flare up, numbness in the face & i have trouble sleeping. it starts right before my period maybe about a week or a week and a half before and ends maybe a few days after the last day of my period.
2010625 tn?1329375656 Today has been different as I have pain and numbness. It is like everything just feels like pressure. I also have anxiety and thought maybe it could be an episode of depersonalization. I am not really sure but the numbness is freaking me out.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone also suffers from numbness of fingers and legs? Also in the summer I have no pain, but as soon as the cold hits, it feels like my bones are being crushed. Is this really fibromyalgia or something else?
Avatar n tn Finally after working 2 months with this the pain was to much, and was occompanied with partial numbness to the back of the right leg, *** to foot. The MRI came back: Mild dextroscoliosis of the lumbar spine is seen without acute fractures, Dislocations, lytic or blastic defections or congenital anomalies. The intervertebral disc spaces appear to be adequately maintained. There were no perivertebal soft tissue masses, calcifications or bone adnormalities. Mild facet hypertrophic changes.
Avatar n tn At times the tingling turns into a burning sensation and numbness. I was sent to a neurologist. I had MIRs on my head and upper spine and they both came back fine. The symptoms appear to get worse in the evening and I have had a couple of nights with an upset stomach and hot flashes. Reflexes are normal to slightly diminished and there are no balance issues. There are no vision problems and with the normal MIRs they do not believe it is MS.
Avatar n tn I also get shin numbness in one leg, it goes hand in hand with the face numbness, they come on together and seem to leave together, I get twitching, slight weak feeling in leg but like you can still feel all the stimuli. Im willing to bet your MRI will be normal. If you've had a pos ANA test i'd think your leaning more towards a connective tissue disease? We have alot in common here! ***@**** feel free to email!

Avatar f tn Many individuals with other liver diseases do not suffer the pain seen in hepatitis C. And there is a high prevalence of fibromyalgia in hepatitis C patients; this is important for clinicians to appreciate, as the recognition of fibromyalgia in patient with hepatitis C will prevent assumptions of pain being due to liver disease—and perhaps allow for a more focused and correct treatment approach.
Avatar n tn (2nd posting sorry I posted in the wrong spot at first) I don't know if I have fibromyalgia so maybe you can all offer some advice. I am 36 year old female. About 8 weeks ago I noticed my left arm was difficult to drive with and it really struck me as beign strange. It felt heavy. I thought it felt weak but looking back 'heavy' is a more accurate term. I went to my dr. who sent me to a neuro. By the time I saw the neuro I was conviced that I had ALS. Convinced.
Avatar f tn Can fibromyalgia be the cause of my symptoms that cycle (recurring fevers, rash, fatigue, pain, blurry vision, and numbness in hands and feet)? I've heard of it being a factor in regard to fatigue and pain, but am unsure about vision, rash, numbness, and especially fevers. Also, I have been diagnosed with MGUS and genetic testing showed a variant in the MEFV gene. Is there any correlation between those diagnoses and fibromyalgia?

He just flippantly remarked that it was due to my fibromyalgia and he just considers that a nuisance. So now I know that a lot of my issues are due to the fibromyalgia and am working to try and determine when it is fibro or Lupus. He didn't seem to care about treating it, just said that the depression meds I am on will help me sleep and thus help the fibro.
5682570 tn?1372290919 ACV (apple cider vinegar) diluted with water for the scalp may help , but do a test on a small area first, just in case you react. For the tingling and numbness on your nose and perhaps the itchiness as well, check out the following possibilities: 1. Low iron, low potassium, low magnesium, low B vitamins. Need to be tested for nutritional and mineral deficiencies (CBC) and tissue analysis for minerals. 2. Stress levels. 3. Fungal overgrowth/candida. You may do a preliminary self-test.
Avatar f tn for two and a half years I have experienced moderate-severe pain and associated numbness in the various nerve tunnel areas in my body (carpal tunnel, ulnar nerve tunnel of the elbow, and especially the tibial nerve tunnel in the ankle that affects my whole foot and makes walking more than two blocks very hard). This hit me in the right ankle/foot, then the left a few months later, then a month after that the right arm and then the left arm.

Avatar n tn For the past month, I am experiencing severe numbness and pain in my 3rd and 4th fingers during the night on both sides, but worse in my right hand. It is painful enough to wake me and hurts plenty when the numbness --> tingling. I sleep on my sides and have for years without problems.
