Hi everyone,
This is the first time I have ever been on a forum, but it seems like a safe place to be able to chat with others that have this bizarre syndrome, fibro. I have been diagnosed for about a year, prior to this I have had problems for 3 years, tested for MS, lyme twice,lupus, Als,etc.. all the blood work normal.It all started 3 years ago while running(I used to run 5k a day),I had a backache. The pain got worse and then I had all the xrays, mri's all normal.Then weird things started happening, a feeling like water running down my legs, burning sensations on my arms and legs, numbness in my hands-my hands always go numb with the least bit of cold. My symptoms are too many to list. Does anyone get a weird feeling in their head, it is so hard to describe, but it islike a buzzing that lasts for a few minutes,I have to stop what I am doing. I also have dizziness. I also have shaking inside of me like a trembling internally. Does anyone else get this?  My dr is sending me to an internist that specializes in Fibro for maybe some other help cures he may have and to also see if fibro is really what I have. 
Nice to have others to share with.

Hey Mom! and welcome to our forum. You have had a rough time, and I'm sorry to say your history is similar to many others on this forum. I do get the buzzing in my head, hard to describe, but this is how I think of it [get ready to laff out loud!] Imagine a glass of water, calm, clear. The drop in an alka seltzer and once the initial craziness calms, the remaining fizz is what it feels like in my head at times. I don't have burning in my arms, so much as numbness in fingers- all except pinkies- a doc Dx me a year ago with carpal tunnel, but so far I haven't been able to control it, and its getting worse every day. You say your fingers get cold, how about your toes, and nose? Hang in there and let us know how you are.

Hi Momteach,

I also would like to welcome you to the forum. I don't have any of the buzzing in my head, but do have the burning muscles and numb fingers. I thought maybe it was slow circulation on my part. I don't know. Fibromyalgia has so many strange symptoms.

I hope that you are feeling well

Hugs, Karen

Hi Momteach and Welcome-

I too had an MRI and numerous tests done and all came back normal. My feet and hands/arms go numb easily on me. Have to get off my feet when that happens and rest my hands and arms also till the feeling comes back.

I also get that internal trembling feeling. Did not have any of these symptoms prior to fibro, so I think it is just symptoms of it. It is the goofiest stuff! It's like our bodies just do whatever they want. mad
