I have FM with all its little quirks.......Over the past few days I have developed something new. Started on one spot on my right scalp - felt sensitive - touching my hair casued pin pricking type discomfort. Can see nothing. Last evening and today it now involves (just on the right side) my forehead, around outer eyelid and now my upper cheek. No pin pricking there just sensitive to touch and if I tightly shut my eye - just on one side.
Anybody ever had this? Is this part of FM or do I need to be concerned and look elsewhere.
Thanks - makes me feel better to know I am not the only one experiencing this. It just when it is your face and around the eye it makes you more concerned then things that involve other areas of our bodies.
This type of flare usually lasts about 6 weeks, then suddenly dissappears. I do not expiencing any red bumps, however. Have you talked to the dermie about this, just to be sure nothing is going on that is non-FMS related?
Have not talked to anyone, yet. Hard when it is the weekend. More little red bumps are appearing along with increased achyness - no real pain. Being an R.N., my fear is that it is the beginning shingles - just what I need. Will call the PCP in the morning if still there or worse (hopefully will be gone).
If is shingles (latent chickenpox), I guess I will not be working for awhile as is contagous until rash is gone - especially since I work with younger folks who have kids and or age that could become pregnant. Hard to stay away from people in a small office.
