Hello..........  :-)
 
I've had this b/4, but I thought I would throw this out to you guys.  Do your finger nails hurt with the slightest pressure, like typing, tapping the table or something.  Mine have been buggin' me for at least a week now. smhair
 
While I'm here at work it is so noticeable of course.  Duh, I spend a majority of my day on the keyboard.  I keep my nails trimmed, filed down....No acrylics for me. tongue   Ya, know my hands were tingling yesterday, hmmm...connection? rolleyes
 
Til next time,
Hugs,

Do you mean your actual fingernails, or fingertips? My fingertips sting off and on, sometimes they feel like I've been electricuted, but I 'm not sure about the nails, of course with fibro all is up for grabs.

Hey Baloo,

Boy, your finger tips sound painful! I get tingling pain throughout my hands once in awhile, but they do ache almost all the time(sore to make a fist). I guess what I mean about my finger nails is that the pressure that is applied when typing/tapping is like driving my finger nail (like a sharp object) into my fingers.

Hi Lori & friends,
Are your fingertips alittle discolored... like they aren't getting enough circulation?  There's a common ailment called Raynaud's phenomenon.  You might want to look it up in a Google Search.  I have it and it causes sensitivity to the hands, tingling and poor circulation.  You have to be really careful that your hands don't get too cold. Its one of the many joys of Fibro, an actual symptom.  Yay!
Have a great day (now that I gave you that wonderful new.. LOL.. I sound like EEyore!!(sp?)
Oh yeah.. almost forgot.. you can get it in your feet too!

Hi.

Mine feel "bruised" with the slightest pressure.  I thought it was just me.  Also they have started "receeding" (sp) and I was told that it is not a fungus so I have no idea.  But it gets pretty painful.  Hope yours feels better soon, I've been dealing with mine for quite a while now cry .

Michelle and Danielle, Thank you, Thank you! Its so nice to know your not the only one with some "odd" symptoms.

I just don't think Raynauds is what I have going on, its more of the bruised sensation like Michelle and Danielle described. Raynauds sounds REALLY painful.

Patti thanks for lookin' out for us. My fingers are/don't get discolored. They may get real cold at times, but at least not to that extreme, as of yet(crossing fingers).

This wasn't a very common one for me, but I might have had something similar a few X's.
Technically of course, it would be your "nail beds" that were hurting, as the nails themselves do not have nerves.

I know this doesn't make it hurt any less :(

Hope you get over this soon !

On a mission to help at least one person with Fibro / IBS, knock it into submission like I have. More than one person would be even better though ;)

My whole hand hurts including the fingers but not the nails, when i tighten my fist or try to turn a key it really hurts and the muscles feel very weak. However, the doctor had me press his fingers as hard as I can and it hurt but was a strong grip. He said there is a difference bet feeling that the muscles r weak and them being actually weak. When u just feel that,the muscles can still perform in spite of ur feeling, when they r really weak they can't perform however hard u try.

My fingernail beds are one of the few places that don't actually hurt, but I do experience the painful pins and needles electric feelings.

Yeah, extreme sensitivity to temperature is very common with fibro. Cold bothers me the most, but I notice abnormal reactions to heat too. For example I can't do dishes with hot water that someone else would find bearable, or I can't drink tea or soup at temperatures that non-fibro people have no problem with, it really feels like it's burning my mouth. But lately my tongue just feels burnt all the time, regardless of temperature. I think all this stuff is related to some kind of malfunctioning nervous system, especially when zaps or parethesia (sensations of tickling, tingling, burning, pricking, or numbness, pins and needles, etc) happen without any stimulus. Hang in there <3
