I have developed a weird sensation the last couple of days. I have an area on my rib cage on the left which feels slightly numb but if I touch it or pinch, the pain sensations are normal. It's sorta like the feeling you get if you put Orajel on your lips, I can feel the area and I can feel the skin move as I move. Hubby looked and doesn't see anything like a bruise.

Has anyone else ever had something like this? Any idea what it could be? I have had some random pain in my hands and feet that I am going to bring up w/ my rheumy because it feels exactly the way my mom described her neuropathy. Both my parents had neuropathy so I am concerned.

Re: numbness???

I found out last year i have FM.
I have some neuropathy in my feet.
My left shoulder blade area does not have the same sensation as the middle of my back or right side. It feels like somethings is crawling in there at times.
I will ask my husband to stracth the area and go deep. if he were to do the same motion and pressure on the right side it would hurt.
I beleive this is all FM related. I just changed family doctors, and will be seeking a new rhuemy doctor in my area.
It will be interesting to see what they have to say.
Good luck with your discomfort.
