Question A new kind of pain?

I have been experiencing a new kind of pain lately. I am use to pain. I have been dx with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue. I have a Rheumy appointment on the 26th and my Opthamologist as asked me to have the Rheumy test me for Sjogren's. So as yet I am not diagnosed with Sjogren's. I seem to have all the severe dry symptoms so we will see. My question is if this new kind of pain is indicative of Sjogren's or some new FM/CFS pain.

Let me explain....My problem is with an intense stabbing pain in my right pinky toe. (It's not a twitch but a sharp pain.) It feels as if someone has stabbed me with an ice pick or knife. The pain shoots up my leg to about my knee. The pain only last for 2-3 seconds. It is about the intensity of a bad cramp in your calf. It enough to make me jump and then I feel that entesne pain. Argh! It has happened about a dozen times in the past week.

Is this type of pain characteristic of Sjogren's? Or is it some FM/CFS pain I have yet to experience?

I have that same pain too. On top of my fibro, I also have peripheral neuropathy to cause that kind of pain.

Re: A new kind of pain?

I get stabbing pains all over my body due to fibro and I'm not sure how to answer your question. I would say get the test done to sense second guessing!!
