Does anyone else have this tenderness?

Postby suecam » Tue Feb 25, 2014 11:45 am

I'm getting beyond despair with the pains at the moment, if I could take my hands off I would. My body/skin is so tender that I can't scratch an itch without causing pain, even drying my skin after a shower causes immense discomfort and I'm starting to tear my hair out.
Does anybody else get this uncomfortable and do they have any suggestions to help?

I feel I could chop my hands off too, they have been soooo painfull the last few days and my face is itchy today. Another day it could be my arms or my head or my shoulders or legs and sometimes my feet which is very difficult when I have shoes and socks or boots on. very annoying.
It keeps me awake at night too.

Yes, I get it all over, including even my eyelids!! Have to sit with my eyes closed as it hurts to blink or keep them open. Every step I take I can feel the judder of putting each foot on the floor going up my legs - very painful. Pressure on the heels of my feet is excructiating at times. I was diagnosed with FM 16 yrs ago, but have had the tender, sore skin since my teenage years (I'm now 49) I am now realising from this forum that it is a symptom of FM and that there are other people also experiencing this. It's quite a revelation to find it's not just me and also confirms just how long I've actually had FM before proper diagnosis.

Dear all am reading all your posts.

I get a tender scalp, body has been itching like crazy, does anyone else get tender breasts?? My ears have become itchy inside and keep popping but it's really painful. My feet are painful especially the right foot, knees elbows too. Does anyone find that having blood taken not only hurts but lasts for a few days? I mean your whole arm not just the site where it's taken from.

Is there no end to the problems fibro causes. Everytime I think I'm understanding the condition there's so much more.

I used to think it was just me who felt like this in a way I'm pleased to find out it's not but although allot of the time my skin hurts and feels like it's on fire I suffer really badly with itchy skin to at first I thought it was the meds I was on so I stopped talking all but my anti depressants which I now have in liquid form but the itching is still really bad and I have to take anti histamines daily which help a bit but not 100% :(
So my question is do we all suffer with itching badly or just a few of us etc???
