Today my skin has been EXTRA sensitive. Even my clothes lying against my skin is painful. What is WEIRD is that if I touch anywhere on my body lightly it can make me gasp in pain HOWEVER if I push HARD on an area the regular pain that is usually there isn't. Any other day I would NEVER think of pushing hard anywhere since I know that is a NO-NO.
It's almost as if the deep intense normal pain has moved to the outer layers of ME (skin).
This is more like nerve pain.
You know when you come to terms with something and live with it long enough you figure out somehow how to "deal" with it since it is always with you. When something totally unexpected comes along and it's new for you it throws you for a loop!
I hope my "normal" pain is back tomorrow (how sad is that?)....this new pain is an odd feeling and I'm not liking it.

Susi,
I to have had skin sensitivity. I'm so sorry you are going through this OUCH!! I've had to lie naked not moving because the sensitivity was so bad. Good news is it passes atleast with me.Tommorro is a new day, with me it brings back the normal pain. I hope this helps give you hope. I know the pain too well.
                sending you GENTLE hugs,and a smile,

Oh Susi,

I'm so sorry you're going thru this. I've never experience this sort of 'switch' but now and then my skin is very sensitive. I agree with genniefstr...we'll hope and pray tomorrow is an easier day for you.

Hugs,

Susi, fibro is really weird!  The other day my arms and legs felt like someone was sticking pins all over them.  The rest of my body was fine.  I went to bed and woke up without that sensation so hopefully that will happen with you too.
 
We never know when this stuff will hit.  I've tried and tried to figure out why something is happening but have never been able to.  I'm sitting here typing because it hurts too much to lie down.  It is 1 AM here.  Now, I had a pretty good day today and went to bed feeling fine.  I woke up a half hour later and felt like I was run over by a steamroller!  I have no idea what happened but I do know I will feel better...probably by morning.  So, it's good to just roll with it and not get all stressed out over these weird things.  The stress will make things worse.  Hope you feel better by the time you read this.

I've had various locations throughout my body that give the sensation of extreme cold?! It's not really painful and I would not describe it as numbness or tingling. The only explanation I've been given is muscle spasm. Not buying it. This has to be a nervous system response. Sure hope your "weird" sensations" end soon! Know that you are not alone!

I hope that the skin pain goes away for you Susi. I know how hard it is when we get new symptoms that we haven't had before. I woke up with a lot of pain in my muscles this morning and don't know what I could have done to cause this. We did pick berries yesterday, but have been doing this on and off for weeks now. Maybe my body has just had enough of it.

Broomhilda,

I have never had that sensation of extreme cold. That sounds awful. I hope that it goes away soon. Yesterday I coughed and felt all this weird pain in my back, shoulders and arms. Like needle pricks all over and then my arms ached so bad afterwards. Like maybe I pinched something in my back. In fact that could be why I am in so much pain today.

I will just chalk this up to a new fibro experience.

Hugs to all, Karen...

I was wondering why you were posting so late last night Sherrine, now I know.
 
I get the pin pricking or feel like something is biting me and nothing is there.
 
The only place I'd say the skin is sensitive is where my bra goes. I don't care how loose they are it still bothers me. The one good thing about cold weather coming is I will have to wear one less and less. It is physical torture for me to wear one.
 
I have noticed that softer materials feel better against my skin. Some tops I use to love now do not feel comfy against my skin so I guess that is a sensitive thing.
 
I have found fibro is like the weather just give it time and it will change.
 
luv and hugs

Susi Im sorry you feel so bad, I am used to numbness and pins and needles feeling in my lower extremites, but it is not like you described. I have a freind though that suffers with that, she will go with nothing on to feel better. Occasionaly at night i might have an article of clothes really bother me and have to take it off.

Today has been an itchy day for me but it doesnt hurt, its not like what you describe, I hope it passes and your back to yourslef again smurf

Thanks for the well wishes everyone.
Another day another symptom.
The skin thing is gone for the most part EXCEPT it all congregated in my left arm and down the left side of my back and side.
I swear that I am allergic to the pin and wires that were but in last year to repair my broken elbow.
The elbow has never healed correctly (pain-strength wise) and anytime I get "something" weird going on that is new it always moves to that arm!
At least Advil is helping to ease the pain. Advil does NOTHING for my fibro so I am thinking this is something else entirely..... with a little help from the fibro of course!
So many times we automatically *assume* that everything we feel is fibro-related. I get lightbulb moments on occasion (like this morning at 2am when I awoke with the pain and took the Advil) and remember that sometimes, just sometimes it ain't all sucky fibro that is causing the issue.
The good news is that I am finished working for the day but have a work related meeting to attend this evening and then I have the rest of the night off! WHEW.

Susi,

Like Sherrine said, "Fibro is really weird!"  rolleyes It's weird how we all react to it, how we deal with it, and how we treat it.  It's weird because everyone seems to have to deal with their own weird problems and issues.  And with me, I'm just weird, anyway. smilewinkgrin

But, yes, I have a horrible skin sensitivity-especially on the leg I broke over a year ago.  I can barely run my hand over that leg without screaming.  Actually, today my PT accidentally was giving me a friendly pat and she did it on that leg and I screamed and started crying.  I think I freaked her out because I usually put on this fake happy front (can't let people know how I really feel-but that's another can of worms).  But, when she touched that leg, I reacted before I could think, and I really showed my true colors-that I am SO painful, and some days (like today) I just can't deal with it. cry

BTW-sorry for using your thread to vent.  I'm just under so much stress (I know, we all are) and I'm SO painful. sad

Anyway, I forgot to ask.  How is your dog?  I hope everything is going well.  My best wishes to you and your beloved boxer! :-)

Vent all you want! When others vent it makes me not feel so bad to do so when the need strikes. :)

My Boxer is doing well despite having cancer, heart issues and some other things. We are waiting to get a 2nd opinion from another oncologist at Ohio State University on the 22nd of this month. The first one we visited with wanted us to jump right into chemo......when three years prior (first diagnosed) this same oncologist told us that her type of cancer doesn't respond well to chemo!

It's all a blur to me and I am just trying to take one day at a time until I can make a decision as to what to do for her. She doesn't know she is sick and we have decided NOT to tell her. She loves life and wakes up every day with a smile and a butt wiggle that continues until her head hits the pillow each night. She is the love of my life and knowing what is in store for her on this journey is breaking my heart. I am in pain overload due in large part to the stress associated with her condition. But she is worth it and I would suffer for eternity if it meant that she didn't have to.

Susi,
 
Thanks for saying it's OK for me to vent.  Sometimes I feel like I have to always act happy & funny here-but that's my own issues... rolleyes
 
Anyway, I'm really sorry about your boxer girl.  If it's any help, OSU Vet School is REALLY good-and you will get the best care (and options) there.  Unfortunately, boxers are really prone to cancer. sad   But, they are some of the most special dogs (especially the way they wiggle their butts, LOL).  I used to work for at an internal medicine/surgical vet practice, and I can't even count the number of dogs we gave chemo to.  But, I can remember one particular dog-a white boxer with blue eyes-who stole my heart.  Her name was Holly, and she left her little footprints on my heart. cry
 
So, the best wishes to you and your family. :-)
