Hi. Today is my first day in the discussion of FM. My biggest question was about the burning and tingling pains in my feet and ankles, but I have read all of your comments and now feel I am not alone there..... but.... do any of you have lumps/bumps and a corded feeling under the skin of your thighs? Hard to explain, but I know if anyone has this, then you will know what I mean.View Thread
Hi FMily. I am at my brother and sister in law's house for Thanksgiving. I don't have internet at home, yet... I go to my public library about once a week.... Anyway, last night, here at their house, I had a horrible night. I didn't sleep a wink and my feet were off the chart with tingling, burning, stabbing sensations. My body hurt soooo bad and I couldn't find a soft place to sleep. The "strange" bed felt too hard and I could not relax. It gave me a chance to tell my family about the fibro. It is hard to explain, but when I started reading some of the discussions from the fibro community, they seemed to understand more.
I have a question... Does anyone have any good tips on travel with fibromyalgia? I also have restless legs and take ropinorole (Requip generic). Have a great day on Black Friday. JaRayeView Thread
I have irritable bowel with my fibro. My sister in law told me to try charcoal capsules from the health food store. I have found that the charcoal helps A LOT. I feel like it has helped tremendously with the "bathroom" days.
Thanks for your reply JBird. I know. I have those lumps, too. I don't have internet at home, so some responses will be slow. I go to the library to look things up. Glad to be in the fibro community with you.View Thread
Hi JamesMary. I am new to the community today, but I do want to comment on your question. Yes. It seems like I am put on a stage in front of a thousand people when I am just trying to communicate to even a family member or a close friend. I have to repeat my A's a lot and that's hard because my daughter's name starts with an A. I sometimes feel like I have to re-start a word just to get the whole thing out. I think my friends and family are finally figuring all of this out, too. View Thread
