Don't know if I have it or not, but I have bad flares. My skin stings all over. My mind feels foggy especially in the morning. I'm exhausted. I have pain in the muscles in my body all over. Does this sound like fibro?
I too have fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial pain Syndrome. I never heard of have any skin problems. Fibromyalgia is a muscle and nerve disorder. I have many trigger points that hurt when touched or sometime just hurt on it's own. Most in my thighs, which unfortunately has cause me some hip bursitis. Which not only hurts but has a horrible burning feeling.
Make an appt. with a Rheumatologist and he can tell you for sure if you have Fibromyalgia or not. My family doctor just put me a cymbalta which they say may help with the fibromyalgia. I have my finger crossed.
If you would like more info look up Devin Starlanyl, M.D. He has Fibromyalgia himself and being a doctor he has looked into this at great lengths.
