Pins and needles

Postby Auntiekaka » Wed Jun 26, 2013 7:42 pm

Hi thanks for your quick response to my request to join this group.

I'm new to this forum so please bare with :)

I was diagnosed with fibro last May and my GP put me on lyrica straight away. I have had several blackouts and severe pain and gradually my GP has upped my dosage and I am currently on 175mg. Over the past few weeks and have started jurking in both my hands and feet especially in the evening time once I try to relax. This morning I have woke to pins and needles in my thumb and 2 fingers. Just wondering if anyone has had similar problems? Thank u :)

Hi and firstly :welcome: to the forum secondly pins and needles does seem to feature for some of us, but if this is something new or is a worsening existing problem then you need to go and talk to the doc, dont put everything down to fibro and dont be fobbed off that everything is connected by anyone else either.

Fibro mimics so many other conditions and so its so easy to say 'oh its just another part of FM' and yes it might well be but it needs checking :-D :-D :-D
