My Symptoms are as below....

Burning feet with socks or and shoes on.
Wet/Cold feeling in many places on my skin from legs to even face.
Tingling and pins feelings in many places.
Buzzing feeling in both arms.
Itching in the mussels when I use them a lot.
Itching on skin on my arms, was tested for allergies and been treated for 10 years now.
Spots feel as if I just got a burn, and hurts to the touch.
Stiff neck
Fog thoughts
Slight feeling of dizzy
Some days I could sleep for days and days.... cannot stay awake.
Panic Attacks
Sexual problems at times
Walk slow and hold onto hand rails
Legs feel weak

I know what a mess.....

So what do you think, I see a Neurologist in a few weeks. Any suggestions what to ask or tell him.

Not sure but sounds a lot like it. I would take your list to the neurologist and let him/her decide. You will probably need some testing to rule out other things first.

Re: Do I have Fibro ??

look up arachnoiditis especially if you have had back issues. There are several different sites to read up on the symptoms.
I have severe body cramping, feelings of things on my legs, twitches, itching, rashes, fatigue, medication allergies, horrible night sweats, tingling, burning numbness, jolts, vision changes, noise sensitivity,heart palpatations osteroporosis to name a few.
I have had fibromyalgia since 1989 and possible sjogren's due to breast implants. I changed my careers and life style and was doing ok as long as I paced myself. It all changed after being injured at work and needing back surgery. Someone mentioned arachnoiditis and wow, I am going to talk to the dr about it.
