Hey, I hope everyone is doing well :)

For the last little while I've noticed that I've been getting these pins and needles sensations randomly all over my body. Sometimes it will feel like I am being stabbed with a needle, and other times I will get a patch of skin that tingles with tiny little pricks. A few times in the past week entire patches of skin have gone numb and tingly like it feel asleep, even though there was no blood cut off or anything.

I am going to ask my doctor about it next time I see him (next week) but I was wondering if this was a part of fibro?

Tara, a lot of us have the pins and needles thing.  I know I do.  I also get the sensation that my skin is wet or cold or hot.  Sometimes I feel like water is running down my leg or I have a bug crawling on me.  It's really weird but I'm glad you will discuss this with your doctor.  Let us know what they think!

Yeah, this is supposed to be a common one for us. Luckily I don't get it too often. Sometimes I get the feeling of having a bug on me or that I've just been bitten by one, though when I look there's never anything there.

Today, though, I suddenly had the sensation that I had a drop of boiling water fall on my chest. It literally felt like a small glob of lava had landed on me. Obviously, there was nothing there, but the sensation was very severe and unusual. It lasted a few moments.

I know a lot of people get tingling in their hands and extremities, and I am lucky to not get that often. But some days I feel like there is a very thin glove on my hand that reduces my level of sensation. It doesn't take it away completely and there's no tingling or prickling or any real numbness, I just feel this weird.. softness? Like I have to work a bit harder to feel the sensation in my fingers. Anyone else?

I wasn't sure if this was a symptom of fibro or something else, but its good to know that I'm not the only one.

Its crazy what fibro does to us
