Really.... I'm surprised. I have looked at fibro too and never seen any mention of nerve pain symptoms.. The reasons why I'm not considering Fibromyalga is because I'm not tender to the touch, when say.. my legs hurt, because I 'm not having joint (arthritis pain), and because of the nerve symptoms I have ... shooting, stabbing, tingling ect. I also have nerve pain in my head and face ... one of the main symptoms when i went to emerg was tingling on top of my head, my cheek, lips and under my chin. I also had a creepy crawly sensation at the top of my forhead, besides everything else through out my body. I just assumed this is why they all decided to start looking for MS. I don't have anything else that goes along with Fibro either, like IBS, no rashes ect. Does you wife also have the blurry vision problems?? I sometimes get tingling in the corners of my eyes (on the inside ) too.. None of the doctors I have seen have ever mentioned fibro to me.
I'm also having a new symptom with an old pain that scares the crap out of me... as soon as I lay on my back (only in my bed ) I start getting this really deep burning pain in my left leg, from hip to knee, then it goes really numb and usually wakes me up, but now if I move my leg I get this excrusiating pain in the muscle.. like it's ripping.... omg, horrible pain.
I'm very happy for the insight about fibro, because i'm sure I don't know everything about it.. I know it can be very dibilitating and I hope your wife has found some relief... chronic pain is never any fun, no matter what disease you have. I'm also greatful because these are the types of responses i'm looking for, anything to shed some light.. and of course because, I'm undiagnosed I sometimes need to vent... lol
