Can fibromyalgia be pain in one arm?
So i have this nerve pain in my left arm, on a scale of 1 -10 the pain is quite often a 14. Its a searing, burning, stabbing pain that moves all over my arm, most often in the upper arm - sometimes in the shoulder, sometimes the armpit and left breast, and sometimes up to the neck. With it i get tingling and weird cold/hot sensations in my face and left ear, and down to my left fingers. My right side seems to lose muscle control at the same time - no pain but I have trouble walking, and cant write or hold things. I've had *all* the tests - the docs cant find anything wrong, they've ruled out MS. I take ms-contin, percocet, zonegran and I've just started amitriptyline. I am desperate for relief, and some kind of diagnosis so I know what I'm dealing with. As of right now i feel like they're just throwing pills at me hoping something might work, and in the meantime I am literally howling in pain daily. I miss so much work because of this (thank god for FMLA) and I'm depressed because my quality of life has just gone straight downhill - I'm either completely f'ed up on pain meds, falling asleep or writhing in pain. I'm praying the amitrip. works as I've been told it should, but I still want answers - what is wrong with me??? Thanks for any input and info about the different types of fibro.
