Ive been dealing with back pain and muscle spasms so I put a menthol patch on my back. After like 2 minutes I was nearly doubled over in pain. It felt like someone took a hundred needles from the sun and put them all on my back. Anyone with fibro/CRPS (or any nerve pain in general) deal with this? I dont remember this happening before
Chronic Generalized pain
Yup! Fibro! At least for me. But i also feel like that every moment i open my eyes. 😥 there will be random needle severe burning pains in parts of my body that literally cripple me, I can barely crawl when it happens.
yes! Its awful. Thanks for your help
Yes, fibromyalgia is awful. I've noticed cool sleeping temperatures and lukewarm baths help the most when I'm in a flare up.
epsom salt baths have been a lifesaver
Make sure you’re stretching out slow and steady, keeping those muscles moving will help you not feel even more weak.
will do! Thank you!
It is possible you have a sensitivity to topical menthol. I once tried using IcyHot which contains menthol and immediately broke in an inflamed, red, burning, painful rash. I avoid menthol on my skin now. Could just be a weird Fibro overreaction to new stimuli.
