I have read that one of the many symptoms of fibromyalgia is itchiness with rash. Has anyone experienced this without a rash? I have constant itching at random parts of my body, but no rash. Any med recommendations?

      @CozyVibez Zyrtec worked for me too. Mine was worse fmduringvthe day when the wind/air caused hives on exposed area. For me, works best to split them in half and take morning and night.

      I take Benadryl at night because the itching is worse then. It is so bad I can’t wear socks anymore.

      My rash gets on my hands/feet and face. The rest of my body will itch without rash

      I get it on my legs, but only certain time of the year, I have cream from the doctor which works well

      Yes. So much itchy. Like I don't WANT to rip my skin off but I'm less opposed to the idea. Stupid nerves also won't let me wear jeans anymore.

        @Aimless the only way I can wear jeans are if they are tight skinny jeans... I mean bottoms in general I have to wear tights, biker shorts, or skinny jeans to be comfortable, and underwear with them is out of the question becausethe sensation that fabric rubbing together causes is excruciating... I love to wear dresses, and I still do. But it so uncomfortable that I don't do it often.

          @Kmlb5464 it seems like to me the tighter the clothes the more uncomfortable I am and it hurts my skin I have to wear very loose fitting clothes and I love wearing my dresses

      Does anybody ever feel like you have cold water going down your leg under your foot and you look down and there's no water like you'll be standing there washing dishes or doing something and you're near water so you thinking there's something dripping down my leg I spilled it and there's nothing there's no water there's no nothing else but it feels like cold water dripping down your leg and your foot I get this all the time especially on the left side

      Yes I have constant itching it's almost like there's little bitty tiny bugs you can't see I know we have those little mites but this is like bigger than that I feel crawling all over me all the time from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet it's all the time scratching and itching scratching and itching

      I don't get a rash but I do get 'itchy patches' they are extremely frustrating because no matter what I do I can't get rid of them

      I have fibromyalgia for many years and have rash just showing up and the disappearing dr Sid it could very easily be the gabapentin or lyrica you are on

      Ok, it depends on the severity of your rashes but I'd recommend talking to a dermatologist to at least get some cream to sooth the itchiness. For me, I have fibromyalgia and eczema 🙃it got so bad where I was in the hospital constantly because the open patches were all over my body, and they never healed so I kept getting painful infections. I started taking bi weekly Dupixent Injections and I'm so much better.

      I have severe itchiness on my legs. I bruise so badly from how bad I scratch. I’m thinking it’s the hydroxychloroquine, I stopped it for a while to test it out and yes, my itchiness stopped, but my lupus symptoms worsen, so I went back on it.

      I heard that itchy feeling comes from taking tramadol but I’m not sure 🤔 x

      Wait...... I have never heard of this as a side effect, but I'm simply itchy very frequently, and I think it's not dry skin as my issue. I take Zyrtec every night, and that takes care of the majority of the urge to itch.

      Same. Especially my legs. I’m thinking it’s my medication.

        @DixieDoodles Mine gets worse at night it's like I almost be asleep and I start itching and then I'll scratch and doze off start itching over and over and over all night long
