I’m wondering what kind of fibromyalgia symptoms everyone else gets? For the last few weeks, I’ve been getting some different symptoms but only on my right side.
It feels like someone keeps pouring hot water over my right foot and my right hand keeps feeling achy around my middle, ring, and pinky fingers when I try to grip anything. The pain in my hand comes and goes. I’m guessing this is some kind of neuropathic pain, but they’re new to me. Does this sound like your experience with fibromyalgia?

    Hi! I get both of these quite regularly with my fibro! I refer to the hot water as burning patches, I have even had people tell me that the site of the pain is physically hot as well as me just feeling it 😅 I also get really bad aching pains in my arms/hands and legs/feet. For the burning patches sometimes cooling the area down will an ice pack can help but sometimes any contact is too painful so be careful. I have heard that cooling sprays can be effective! Haven't tried it myself, but one of my friends uses one! As for the achy feeling I've never really found something that helps unfortunately, but I do think this is triggered by the cold weather, its always worse then. I hope you find a way to manage both of them!

      “Burning patches” is a good way to describe it! It’s really difficult to describe a lot of the types of pain, which, I think, sometimes makes it more difficult to find other people who have them. It is quite cold where I live right now, so that makes sense as a trigger too!

    My pain is a little different, though it's changed over the years periodically, but also always has been on my right side.

      It’s interesting that it’s only on our right sides. I get migraines too and they are always on the left side, just to confuse things 😆

    Just reading think made me think about this and my pain and a majority of it is affecting the right side as well. It starts in the lower back, hits the hip and the right thigh with a burning sensation -!: then pain in the knees. Yes it is both knees. I thought living in Florida the weather would help the conditions but doesn’t seem to help. I have no pain medicine to take to ease the pain when it’s too intense to deal with. I have Celecoxib to take twice a day, Orphenadrine at bedtime, and low dose naltrexone…..

      My symptoms always seem to flare up most when I visit warmer places. I live in a part of the UK that’s pretty wet and windy all year. It’s interesting that your pain is mostly on the right too. I hope you can find something that helps ease it!

        I really hope so too. I have to find a new pain management doctor and the one I was seeing dismount me as a patient and won’t see me anymore. I guess I am fine with that since they didn’t help me in facts make things worse. Just frustrated in the way I was treated the last few weeks

    Yes, it does sound like fibromyalgia. It presents so differently in each person, but pain and neuropathy are extremely common.

      Yeah, I think the fact it presents so differently makes it more difficult to compare experiences, in a way. I’m pretty sure this is fibromyalgia but it’s difficult to find others who have the same types of pain as me, which leads to me questioning if my experience is even valid (it is - but I just have to keep reminding myself of this) 😄
