I get this form time to time but yesterday and today have been really bad.....Anyone ever feel almost a numbness but a bit of a tingly feeling in your muscles/joints?  It feels like at times it is the muscles but other times seems like joints.  I had this in my left upper arm yesterday but today am kinda feeling it all over.  Anyway just wondering about others.  Soft hugs!

Hi Libby, I get the sensations you describe usually when I'm overtired. Sometimes I
will get muscle spasms with it. I think it is part of fibro. Mention it to your doctor.

"Numbess sensations" and tingling can be symptoms of fibro.  My legs tingle and 'crawl' constantly and it feels worse when I have clothing against them.  I was told it was a part of RLS but I have it all the time and not just at night so I've just chalked it up to fibro.  I have had this happen on my arms a back also.

The medical term for this is "paresthesia," a fancy word for "abnormal sensations." Paresthesia is one of the hallmarks of fibro. I personally just call it "the weirdness." The sensations vary from slight tingles running up and down my thigh, to full body, toes to head "rushes" that actually give me goosebumps and make me dizzy. Sometimes the toes-to-head sensations will repeat for hours. . . .It really freaks my husband out because he can see the goosebumps sweeping up my body, subsiding, then sweeping up again. What fun!
