Can I not even get pampered anymore? I don't even have a diagnose (hope to get in for an appt. in August )but already I feel like I must have Fibromyaglia. Any kind of touch hurts. It just felt unfomfortable when I was there but I did tell him to not press too hard and not to pound on my legs like he started to do. Don't know if it is a coinicidence with my feet hurting.

I also hope to get a massage soon to see if that helps, but now I am wondering if it will hurt more then help?

I am not really into drugs and my pain isn't terrible. It's more like a constant low-grade ache but sometimes certain areas hurt more than others. I am definitely sensitive to touch. If someone touches me too hard I will get more sore or I will feel it for awhile afterwards.

oh, and do your feet feel like they are burning sometimes? My feet feel like they go back and forth between feeling like they are burning to feeling like I stepped on something. It is a feeling like I just stepped on a little Lego toy or something, but i know I didn't. I don't know if that makes any sense! Sometimes I still think my symptoms sounds more like MS, even though the MRI showed no lesions, but I have only been having symptoms for three months now. The reason why it seems more like MS sometimes is because heat makes my symptoms worse-- like burning feet, pain gets worse, I get electric shock symptoms, and hands tingle more.

Hi bridget, just wanted you to know that I to can't stand pressure applied to the bottom of my feet. It has to be very gentle or I cant stand it. I dont have the burning or electric shocks but I do understand that a regular foot massage or even a regular massage can be very painful.

Gentle massages are great.  You need a massage therapist that knows what they are doing.  Here is a site that might help you.  I use a MT off this site and she is wonderful and the massages do help me a lot.
