    Hello, I find that my skin feels sore to the touch even a light touch when my Fibro is having a bad day.  

    If you have pain or a feeling of pressure in your chest, it would be good to get it checked as soon as possible, as it may be something else that needs treatment.  I don't mean to frighten you, it could be lots of things, but better to check it out if its a new pain.

    Yes indeed. Too many areas to keep track of.

    I can't even touch myself let alone someone else, but the only things that help me are topical salves and pain patches- which both require touch to apply. I'm on my heating pad most of the day when the pain allows me to 'rest'.

    My family has learned to not return my hugs. It kills us all because we are very affectionate, but I can't handle even the touch of a hug. I give them and know it's being returned in my heart.

    Hopes for relief
