Dose anyone have what starts as a tingle in my back that moves forward to my right breast and then becomes pain like a knife is being twisted in. This is followed up with my right breast being numb most of the time. My doctor wants to contribute it to my fybro but I'm not convinced. I understand the fybro is a nerve issue and I have been dealing with it for 10 years and have learned to live with it. But one thing with my fybro is it seams textbook. Its always both sides both legs both shoulders both elbows never only one side. Dose anyone have this issue?

Hi fybroman (clever name, BTW!), I get odd sensations here and there. I often can't sleep on my left side because of a weird feeling there---not even sure how to put it in words. It's almost as if it's impossible for any muscles there to relax, even a little. Just impossible to get comfortable.

I think fibro can disguise itself in all kinds of ways. Currently, I'm in the midst of a flare that is literally all over my body. It feels like a sinus infection that has literally taken over my body---how strange is that??! But I've noticed it "hits" harder in various areas. Such is this monster called fibro!

Have you seen a neurologist or had nerve testing, an MRI, or anything like that? That's one thing that really eased my mind. Though I've had fibro for many years, I generally get the same sort of pain, sensations (or loss of), but it can vary enough at times to make me second-guess myself. If it's too worrisome, I do go and have it checked out.

As far as affecting both sides of the body, my current bout is doing that, but generally I have more issues on my right side, for some reason. I do have something else going on besides fibro, though, according to my neurologist; something neurological.

Always a good idea to sit down with a good doctor, talk about anything that concerns you, and move on to testing if it's needed and/or eases your mind.

Wish you the best! Hope to see you on the forum again, and hope you get some good answers. smile
