Hi, this is my first post on here and I'm hoping someone can advise us or shed some light on whats going on. For 2 years my husband has been having problems with his left outer thigh, primarily from the knee to half way up. At first it was itchy, then a burning sensation came on whenever he stood or walked for any period of time. To avoid this he has stopped going out and about and has tried to rest it as much as possible. This seems to have done the trick and he hasn't had the dreafull burning for some months. However, he does still have general pain in the same area. He says it's really hard to discribe but it almost feels like someone has punched him there. His knee is also painful. On and off he has sharp painful 'pings' often in the left leg but also all over his body. He gets lots of muscle spasms that worry him and also hurt, sometimes I can see his thumb, or limb jumping as they can be so violent! He says that he often feels like all of his muscles ache, like he's over used them even though he hasn't done anything to cause this feeling. We don't know if this is or could be Fibro or if it's something else altogether, which is why we are asking if anyone is or has had these same sensations and pains. It's all really getting him down and I hate to see him hurting and avoiding doing things he enjoys just to try and prevent any further pain.
I hope someone can help.
