I get this constant feeling between my shoulder blades that can be best described as "creepy-crawly." It feels like I have a million spiders running between them. Is this a fibro thing or should I go get it checked out as being something else nerve related?

ETA: Maybe not constant constant, but "regularly."

Hi Reanna,
Yes I get that too. Sometimes on my legs, sometimes on my arms.
I talked to my neuro and rheumatologist and was told that it's indeed a fibromyalgia thing.
What I do to "fix" it is relax, increase the exercise I do to increase the blood flow in my body.
Hashimoto, Fibromyalgia, Anxiety, Optical Migraines to name a few.

Hi Reanna,

I've had that sensation for years, ever since my fibro was diagnosed. Mine also began between my shoulder blades but eventually spread to my arms and legs. What is helping me cope with it now is using organic sesame oil, it's a massage oil not the cooking oil. It helps me deal with the constant itch.

I eat nutritiously and do not eat foods I'm sensitive to and ever since a back injury triggered my fibromyalgia, I have been doing prescribed stretches twice daily.

Yes, I feel like there is a bug on me occasionally. Sometimes I feel like I have water running down my leg and I also get what feels like cold spots, and sometimes hot spots, on my skin. It's fibro according to my doctor.

They think fibro is a neurological problem so these sensations seem to make more sense to me.

I get the feeling like I brushed up against a stinging nettle. It itches and stings at the same time. When I scratch at it it gets worse.
