I still feel numbness in my shin (sp?).  It is been 3 weeks. Ugh!  My whole leg is bothering me but not as intense.  I still can't put alot of weight on that leg either.  I've been back to work for the last week and half.  I know that sitting in my chair all day doesn't help, but hey that's my job.
 
I have been to the chiropractic center a few times since last wednesday(first visit).  Been some what relaxing. 
 
Can anyone relate to having such nerve issues daily?  Feeling "punk"(my fm aches/pains), as I call it, is trying enough sometimes.
 
Have a great day to all!

Binki...I have sensations of 'numbness' in both of my legs from the knee down.  They aren't really numb cause I keep poking them to see if they are.  I have had both my knees go numb on occasion.  Really numb...not just the sensation.  I attribute it to sleeping with them pressed together all night but I really don't know.  I haven't been able to walk on my right leg for weeks...pain from the hip all the way down.  It keeps me up most of the night.

Fibro is such a lovely disorder...something new every day!

Donna,
You say you have pain from the hip down, me too and its also my right leg. I was wondering since my left doesn't give me that kind of trouble, if maybe being the right is my dominant side I am more prone for that side to act up first. Hmmm, I don't know, your right, fibro is such a wacky disorder.

I get some numbness in my hands,fingers, toes, feet and legs. But now I'm having lower back pain ALOT and hip pain ALOT... So I'm kind of in limbo now. I don't know if I really have Fibro or just chronic lower back and hip pain.?....lol

The numbness affects me in my lower back, and in my rear end. I thought it was probably from a nerve being pinched. Hmmm, with fibro you never know what will pop up.

Yes, I have nerve issues too. And I drive my doctor bonkers with them. Since I also have pernicious anemia, which can give me numbness in my extremities if my b-12 level gets too low, I keep running in to make them check my b-12 levels every time the numbness or tingling gets bad. Doctor thinks I'm overreacting, but I'd rather have a little prick in the arm than risk irreviersible nerve damage. Most of the time it's just the fibro.

I would run to the doctors to. Better to be safe than sorry. I am sick right now. I wish it had not hit me I have had enough already.

Narcotics are a double bladed sword. They will help you function, to an extent, then they will begin wear and tear on your central nervous system. Trust me on that. As time progresses; I have more and more neurological symptoms, along with all the regular Fibro stuff. Also, of course, the aging process itself can bring new and unexpected treats, like osteoarthritis. In the lower back, as calcification starts around the vertebrae; the nerves will get pinched in certain positions. Ergo (therefore), lower back and leg and hip pain. All radiating outwards and downwards from pinched nerves in the back.
