just wondered if any body gets almost like a crawling feeling all over their skin and just wants to itch. Want to know if this is another genuine symptom or just my doctor saying it must be connected. Everything I get now must be connected with my ME according to my doctor (not very helpful). I have been struggling with neck pain and down my arms and between my shoulder blades and around my ribs, plus getting pain in elbows and tingling in hands. My doctor says the pain in ribs is due to tablets and arm pain could be carpel tunnel so just take co codamol. But reading your postings it sounds like i could be suffering from fibro :?: (any ideas). I am shattered now so going to rest.
Take care everyone

Your neck and shoulders sound like mine but the itching could be a chemical sensitivity. I used to itch a lot, still do a bit, but a lot less since I totally changed my toiletries and household products to environmentally friendly, cruelty free and paraben free products and stopped dyeing my hair. I reckoned the less chemicals I expose my body to the better. It's been 6 months now and I have seen a bit of a difference. :D
Your pain and tingling sensations are identical to mine - and I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia by a specialist. It does sound very much like it, I'm afraid, though I don't get the rib pain. I also itch at times, - but then I've always been an itchy person so it's nothing new really. :roll:
There are really no over the counter medications that help with fibromyalgia - I've tried them all. Apparently Baclofen is supposed to help, and GPs are being advised to prescribe this drug - haven't tried this yet as I cannot summon up either the energy or inclination to visit a GP. My old one left, and the new one I went to really wasn't interested in ME and just shrugged her shoulders - so I shrugged mine back! :evil:
How annoying is itching :twisted:
I have bad episodes of itching too and tonight is no exception - everywhere - esp my legs!
My hubbie says I send him crackers in bed - NOW NOW NOW you lots NOT in that way! He says I fidgit and itch all night. He's due out with the boys this weekend and whilst most of them will be complaining about their Mrs whinging and teething babies I can hear Jason saying "My Mrs keeps itching! Shes sending me daft" Lets hope he tells them exactly why I am itching and doesnt casue a conversation stopper :oops:
going to try and get some sleep now been up since 2 got a really bad cold swollen glands etc
take care everyone
Camomile tea is good for restful sleep but the taste does need getting used to. If you cannot stand it (I can't) then Camomile and spearmint is much better. Redbush (Rooibos) is also good. :D
Hope everyone is ok

Well folks, I'm itching away whilst writing this so it must be catching. Even my hair is itching and I only washed it this morning :roll:
Sorry you haven't been sleeping lately nix - we can all relate to that one - it's an absolute pain.
For the last week though I have been sleeping really well, and so deeply that it has been hard to wake up in the morning :zzz: I'm wondering if it could be anything to do with the magnetic wristband I have been wearing for the last 10 days - or maybe it is just a coincidence. Will keep you posted. :thepost:
Sorry you mum is not too well Jay. It's still early days from her op. though and it can take six months or more to get over a general anaesthetic - some folk can feel tired and lethargic for ages afterwards. Hope she feels better soon. I'm a great believer in tonics - a pharmacist could recommend one suitable for her - might be worth a try. :nurse:
Take care everyone
