I have not been diagnosed with fibro. However my sister, cousin and aunt have it. I've been having symptoms that sound like fibro. Does anyone ever have "sore skin", achy joints, fever and low back pain?
I haven't been to a Dr for these symptoms, as they sound so wierd. Just found this site and thought I'd ask.
Thanks, Sher

   Posted 8/31/2009 2:56 PM (GMT -7) skin is itches and burns and hurts to be hugged. Clothing is irritating. I think this is so for most fibro cases. No fever though. No achey joints for me but it feels like achey joints...what it is though is achey muscles.

Have you had your kidneys checked lately?

I thought of kidneys, but I think they are ok. This is just something that has happened to me several times. My Aunt is who mentioned sounds like fibro, along with other symptoms.
Can you tell me what kind of Dr you see for fibro?

I do have achy skin. Most of the time it feels like I was rubbed with sandpaper but sometimes just achy. Never a rash or visible mark, just pain. I also have randomly painful joints and muscles. I have not been diagnosed but I gave up seeing doctors a few years ago. They weren't helping me and I got tired of it, and a little broke after all the dr. bills that seemed to be for nothing. My mother has fibro and she has the same symptoms I do, hers are just more severe. I started excersizing and eating healthy which has made an incredible difference! Just getting myself overall healthy has made a difference. However, for my mom, she can't excersize much because her fibro and chronic fatigue is real bad. I have Thoracic outlet syndrome which causes a lot of back pain.

Go to your doctor and request a referral to a rheumatologist. Make sure you have a complete list of all your symptoms. My legs broke out in open infections but healed before i finally went to the doctor. If I had taken pictures they could have seen what was going on so if you have any visible symptoms it is important to document them and take pictures. Also, when I saw a rheumatologist, it was difficult for me to explain everything (what kind of pain, how long it lasted, how severe, how often it happens, etc.) I got a small diary to fit in my purse so whenever I had pain of any sort, i wrote down as much info as I could about it.

Good luck and I hope this helps

Hi Sher,

I have had this feeling as well. I always found it hard to describe, but it was almost like a burning sensation all over. One thing I have noticed with FM is there is not a part of my body that has gone untouched by it. I have different pain in different parts of my body all the time. Today is my neck, but it seems to be moving down my back. I also have had a hard time finding a DR. But don't give up. Listen to the posters here they very well educated in this and will steer you in the right direction. Good Luck!!
