Fibromyalgia or Neuropathy: Pain all over not just feet and legs?

Posted by maryflorida @maryflorida, Sep 2 6:10pm

My doctor wants me to go to physical therapy for pain in my left hip. I told her that the pain goes differently every day.. hip, knee, other hip, shoulder. Where is it? Does that happen to you? I can't identify where I hurt because when I get to the office, it may change location and sometimes I don't hurt. I wonder if it is fibromalgia or neuropathy, but I don't think it matters too much. Just pain.

Hi @maryflorida, I added to your title so that other members who have experienced your symptoms can join the discussion and share their experiences. I know that Fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose so that could certainly be a possibility. Here is a Mayo Clinic video that you may find helpful.

Hi Maryflorida,
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia before I ever heard the word, in the late 1980's. Now knowing what it is, I had it a long time before I was Dx'd.
I also have been Dx'd with Allodynia as well which some think is the same thing as Fibro but it's not.
I knew that my insane pain response to anything invasive, whether a microscopic virus, bacteria or foreign body, was abnormal. I also can't be touched in certain ways such as my skin can't be brushed with a hand but it can lay on my skin and even gently squeeze it.
There are places I can't be touched at all such as my upper back and spine area.
The all over flu-like tenderness, aching, fatigue, and trouble concentrating, focusing, decision-making, etc., is textbook fibro.
Then I got the neuropathy and burn and sting over most of my body. It's such a brutal pain! It feels as if I am missing the protective top layer of skin in places. Ouch!
I am happy to do my best to answer any questions you may have about fibro or anything else.
I wish you all the best and a zillion blessings, Sunnyflower 😊

The pain and tingling sensations are is so difficult to describe isn't it?! One day I have tingling in my face and ear, the next day it goes away. I will have tingling in my feet one day and then pain the next day. I am still waiting for my diagnosis and wishing you the best and get answers as well.

Hello kyc117, I too have had such bizzare sensations going on all over my body in addition to the all over horrible stinging, burning and numbness. This is the stranges disease ever! Hope your doctor is able to give you a solid diagnosis! Warmest regards, Sunnyflower 🙂
