Hello I have posted here before. Nearly 3 months ago I wad diagnosed with mild fibromyalgia against a back ground of Osteo arthritis (the OA I knew about neck,spine,knees for some years and newly diagnosed lower back and hip I also have quite bad varicose veins but don't qualify for treatment on NHS). I wanted to ask about burning pain and in particular a sensation which I find hard to describe. I would not call it tingling and no numbness it is like a sizzling sensation or maybe water running in the shoulder and neck and upper arm sometimes in other parts of the body. 9/10 is starts when I lay down to sleep in bed. It takes ages to get to sleep. It does not seem to matter which side I sleep on although the left shoulder is the worse with the sensation and burning. I don't have a gp appointment until 7th of October ( had been waiting for my own gp to return as she has been away). I just wondered if this is anything to do with Fibromyalgia. I also worried about polymyalgia Rheumatica (is that the right spelling and name) but I did have blood tests at the end of June when I saw the rheumatologist for inflammation ESR CRP and one other and they were all normal. I dread having to take steroids (although already on inhalers for asthma) because I have glaucoma and they raise the eye pressures I would rather be in pain then lose my sight. I have also avoided trying Fibromyalgia drugs like Amitriptyline because f the side effects. Would be please to hear from anyone who has similar symptoms.
