The inside of my legs about 2 inches above the ankle.  Now who thought that would be a good place for tender points?  It gets knicked everytime I go to cross my legs.  It gets thumped when my 6yr old son sit on my lap with legs that swing back and forth.  It gets grabbed when hubby thinks its funny to pretend he's gonna swing me around by the ankles after he just got done swinging the kiddos round and round.
  Some how, if there's a way, it WILL get bumped.

Lower back allong te belt line! Gets pressure from almost every chair back, gets bumped by the truck seat at every bump in the road, gets iritated/pulled on just having pants on, and worst of all it is the natural place my wifes hands go to when we embrace!

In the middle of my butt cheek.  It's hard to spend my day sitting when it's so tender...LOL!  And, the outside of my elbow.  Touch it and I'll knock your lights out!

Outside elbow, which usually bumps things, or people brush against it; hands, wrists, and fingers, because I drop things or it hurts to touch anything; and neck, because when it gets stiff I get massive headaches. It's a triple header!

Pain in the neck. I have a pinched nerve or a tender point of both, just inside my left shoulder. Putting on my seatbelt is murder. Reaching with my left arm behind me, to pick up something, murder. Pain radiates all along my left outer arm.

Tyno...I have that too...Can't rotate my left arm, reach for anything behind me, or even put my arm through my coat.  I thought it might be a 'frozen shoulder' but maybe it's just fibro.  Guess I won't be able to hang off the monkey bars anymore.  Oh the Humanity!

For me, it's the inside of my knee -- both knees. it makes it to where I can't cross my legs on most days, and I can't sleep on my side with my knees bent on top of each other -- have to straighten out my legs and spread them apart just to sleep on my side. To top it off, I have had bad problems the last few weeks with my left knee throbbing anytime it's bent at all, so i have to sit here at work with my leg stretched out on a footrest. fun times.

My worst place.... would have to be my groin and pubic area, and I've talked to my dr, who ran every STD test known to man and many gyno tests as well, only to find those muscles are also affected by fibro he says.

Mine are differentat different times. But my worst are the outside of my hip bones (almost punched a doctor once) and my collar bone. My hip are wide anyway so I always bump into things with them and my collar bones really aches most of the time.

MrsCavBar, I am so glad I don't have that tender point! I really like to use it to often for it to hurt!

My Knees and ankles are the most painful.  It feels like sticking your finger down into a bad bruise, with sonar blips of pain radiating through you.  I also have a bad one on top of my head that will pop or crack and its not the good crack cause after that I get horrible headaches till I get a trigger point injection in the area.

Hi Vestabula.
I have just read your post and from experience i would say you do have a frozen shoulder, both mine have been frozen in the past but i went into day surgery and both were manipulated ( yanked about) until they had full movement again, when i woke i was a little sore but now i have 100% movement in one and 95% in the other, i would strongly advise you to see to see your doctor, it gets worse very quickly until you have very little movement and extreme pain.
I hope i haven't spoken out of turn, i would hate anyone to go through what i did.
 
Wishing you well, Sharon xx

Right at the base of your thumb muscle,--on both hands. So it hurts everytime you hold or pick up something. Diane

The back of my neck on the left side......I have a muscle that goes hard as a rock and radiates pain to my head and down my shoulder. It's painful to turn my head and the headaches are incredibly bad. Muscle relaxers don't work. Heat doesn't work. Massage works slightly. Two Tylenols and an Aleve take the edge off. This lasts for weeks when it flares up.

I would have to say mine is the upper chest area.If you hug me it hurts or sleeping trying to move from side to back or other side sooooooo much pain, even breathing sometimes hurts, coughing,sneezing. This is where my first thought of Fibro. came in.My chest hurt,couldnt figure this out.
