Ive been dx with fibro for 12 years now. I also have chronic back pain and have a pain pump that relieves most of my pain. A couple of days ago i started having burning pain down my neck into my back. Now I woke up this morning and it feels like someone has burned the top of my feet. Ive never had this symptom.I was wondering if its related to the fibro? Has anyone else had this feeling? I take 450mg a day of lyrica for the fibro pain. This is worrying me. appreciate any suggestions!

Hi Scmartin,

Welcome to the fibromyalgia forum. I am glad that you have joined us.

It almost sounds like neuorpathy. But I am not sure. I think that the best thing would be to talk to your doctor about it, though I am sure if somebody else has experienced this, they will respond. I have not.

I hope that you stick around with us. Be sure to check out the thread "fibro101" It is the second thread on the top. It is full of wonderful information and you can learn a lot.

You will find many wonderful people here that are very kind and compassionate and willing to share their experiences that fibro brings with you and others.

I hope that you are having a painfree day and I hope that the burning isn't anything serious. But please tell your doctor about it.

Hugs, Karen

Hi...I always describe my pain as burning.  My arm muscles and the tops of my thighs 'burn' today.  It may move somehwere else tomorrow.  I was told by an NP that is was lactic acid crystals, but who knows what really causing the myraid of different pain sensations we all have.  How long have you been on Lyrica?  Once, while investigating this drug, I read that it can causes a burning sensation on the skin...just a thought.
