Hello, everyone! I have noticed something lately, it's kind of hard to explain so please bare with me....
I had a really bad flare a few months ago, I feel it has passed within the last couple weeks. Since then I have noticed that every time I have an extreme emotion, my whole body will immediately start burning and aching.....have any of you ever experienced this? It is so weird, but if I get upset, nervous, scared, angry...for any reason, it seems I can immediately feel it starting in my neck, shoulders, arms and it's like a wave over my body? The burning and aching hurt so bad during this time. Sometimes it sets my body off hurting for the rest of the day or night; or sometimes it passes when I feel better emotionally. I'm just curious if this is a part of fibro and if anyone else has experienced this with their fibro.

Thank you!

I get the same thing happen to me sometimes. Your emotions can definately affect how you feel. You ever hear that when you are more depressed your pain is worse. It's the same thing with any negative emotion. Those emotions affect how you feel. I don't understand why, but they do. Just the same as positive emotions can make you feel better.

Thank you, Spirit, for replying! It's nice to know that I'm not losing my mind like I think a lot of the time, :) It really is a weird and painful sensation, I'm thinking it has to have something to do with my muscles tensing up during these stressful times that is triggering something. Again, thank you, it's nice to know someone else out there understands although I wish you didn't have to experience this too.

Thank you too, Sassy, you wouldn't believe how much better I feel just knowing that you guys understand and others can relate to what I'm feeling! I don't like to bring up every little ailment to my husband or family, I feel they already look at me as a hypochondriac the way it is, hahaha....I did mention this to my husband yesterday, when we had a very stressful day, and he just rolled his eyes and pretty much blew me off....so I thought I would mention it here and make sure it's not 'all in my head'; I'm sure you all can relate to that feeling too! :)

Yes..definitely for me too. And I keep saying to myself, this will pass, this will pass, but when it's happening it's so awful.

Cydful, stress causes all of this and stress makes the pain of fibro worse.  I had a situation last week that was extremely stressful and I started getting "electrical shocks" down my back!  It felt like my back was going to go out.  It's amazing what stress can do to you so try to keep it out of your life as much as possible.
 
I'm glad to hear that your flare is over and that you are feeling better.

Sherrie, I was wondering. You mentions electrical shocks down your back. Have you ever had them in your head.. sometimes going down your arms...they feel like they sap your brain for a split second and it can repeat like this for a long time, or stop after a few minutes. (they seem to do their own thing)
I hope you see this. Cause I don't know if the docs know what it is. I think it is my neck... I was tested for MS. Scan looked fine. I'm just curious.

Thank you Laura confused

Laura, perhaps it's the Cymbalta that  is causing that.  I know we have a member that has been trying to get off Lexapro and gets those "brain zaps".  Try googling it.  You will find that people are having this while taking Cymbalta.  Remember, I'm not a doctor...I'm just guessing.  Just mention this possibility to your doctor and your pharmacist.  The pharmacist knows a whole lot about medication.
