Question small painful lumps in back

I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and I truly believe there is something else going on in my body. I have been to several doctors and the blood tests seem to come out ok, a few abnoralities and especially in the c-reactive protein which is always elevated (it shows inflammation in your body) I have been dealing with constant pain for the last 2 years and it seems to be getting worse. I also have diabetes and diabetic neurapothy. The other night my husband was just lightly running his hand up and down my back and he hit a very sore spot and I jumped. The lump he found is right in the middle of my back approx. 3-4 inches below my shoulder blade and about two inches from my spine. He said he could not see it, but he could feel it and so did I!!! Anyway he began feeling around on my back and found about 8 more small lumps, Some were painful to touch and some were not. The knuckle on my left hand, my first index finger there is puffiness between the first and second don't really see it on top of my hand but u can see the puffiness under my had. I also have the sme thing on my feet. My left first finger tends to stay kinda bent when I am relaxed and it is somewhat painful to use it or apply any pressure to it. Has anyone experianced any of these kinds of symptoms? My feet are just horrible..they are always in pain and very hard to walk. Now I have a huge crack in the side of my heel..putting any kind of pressure on my feet is sooooo painful. I also have several small sores that do not heal on my elbows one on my fore arm, one on the side of my hairline and several on my buttocks area, they too are very painful. Also when I type and extend my fingers, my hand will start to tremor or it just drops on the keyboard, and sometimes I just have jerking movements. Please share with me if you have any of these things going on in your life.

Thank you!:confused

Re: small painful lumps in back

the painful lumps sound like trigger points. there's lots of info about them, "maps" of where they are on the body, and what to do to help them, if you look around - sorry i don't have the energy right now to elaborate
