    fibromyalgia?

    I have recently, in the past 2 weeks been having migratory skin pain. It feels something between a bruise and a sunburn with some tightness, occasional shooting pain and itching (that is the best way I can describe it). It has been most painful on my face, though it has also been present on my neck, shoulder, legs, palms, feet, and soles of feet. It began not long after feeling a bit feverish. I have been quite fatigued, sometimes sleeping 11 hours, but not feeling rested.
    My doctor was thinking it was b12 deficiency, but blood work came back negative. I have been doing my own due diligence, researching some; fibromyalgia continues to come up in my searches. Do any of these symptoms seem to fit? Specifically, the strange migratory skin pain? Any thoughts are appreciated!

    RE: fibromyalgia?

    I have had all of that from Lyme Disease/Co-Infections. I was puzzled by more bizarre symptoms developing over several years before I got a diagnosis. I knew it wasn't just fibromyalgia or "all in my head". One thing that really stood out was that these symptoms would flare up from sugar, and alcohol, as well as mycotoxin foods. I hope you find an answer. You may want to search for a Lyme Literate Doctor (LLMD) in your area.

    I'm a fibro/CFS SURVIVOR, going on 18 years now. I recently had SIMILAR SYMPTOMS, so I went to my primary care physician, & I ended up having 2 things wrong. MRSA, & SHINGLES!! I recommend having your Dr. Check for those possibilities. BEST OF LUCK!!

    Hi there, after reading your post and how you describe the pain- I thought of Shingles. I have had it and it is very painful and tires you out. It will also continue to spread- see a doctor and if it is Shingles, once you start taking the antiviral you will feel it retract and get better. Good luck!
