    I don't know if it is a flare or normal pain but I get cramps going down the outer sides of both thighs. It can last for Months &

    then levels off. It is difficult to climb stairs when this happens.

    Every day is a new adventure with fibro. You never know where it will pop up next! I also get burning on my palms & bottom of my feet. Have you tried an ice pack?

    Hi Amybober,

    I have burning sensations in my feet and hands, as if I'm on fire. I have been suffering for over 20yrs but only diagnosed with Fibro Aug 2014. I have almost all year round. rolleyes x

    Hi amybober;  Yes, your description of "feeling like being sunburnt" was my very first symptom.....I feel it All the time in my muscles over Shoulderblades....and the feeling of "having the flu" from the neck down....the only thing that helps my 'burning" pain is Amitryptille....and I am sorry that you are feeling this, as it is very hard to get "Used to"...but if you realize this early, and get the Correct Treatment early, you may not get as bad as some of us have....it took me nearly 20 years for the Professionals to Understand, and to accept what I was trying to tell them....you will probably find other "spots" that hurt, for no definitive reasons....and Numbness in extremities (as sooo many others complain of this, too)...I use Tubigrip in these times  (it increases the circulation to the limbs).......muscle stiffness as in the neck/back, I have regular physio and at times need some valium to keep them relaxed, otherwise I end up with bad headaches........I am sorry to give you such a long list of probabilities...but feel if you find something New...it Can Be Fibro...but always check with your GP, as it is important to remember, that other medical conditions can also arise............confusedBron
