... shoulder blades with varying degree. Yesterday I was being examined by a physician and his fingers on my shoulder blades felt like his fingers were on fire. It didn't make sense, as to why that was, so I just told him his hands are warm. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone else had similar experience with burning sensation at same time a persons finger feeling like their hands is on fire?
I get the same feeling as well when I am touched. It's hard for people without fibromyalgia to understand this, such as my family, but they've learned to live with it. I sometimes feel bad or guilty asking my kids not to touch me. I still give them kisses or quick hugs if they want them, don't get me wrong, but anything more really hurts so they come back for more later on. But yes, the burning gets to such a horrible intensity that it makes me cry at times. I try to be strong, but wind up taking Ibuprofen to take the edge off. This does not take the pain away, but keeps me from screaming out loud. Since I take other medications for Bipolar and Depression, I have tried to stay away from taking any more drugs. This may change in the future. I hope you can find relief from something your doctor prescribes you. Best wishes.
Fibro symptoms appear to intensify certain sounds, smells, light, pain, and the nerves are hypersensitive to almost everything. We feel everything it seems like 30-40 times more than the average person. I cannot be touched very often by people or tags in clothes, bras, underwear, rough fabric like wool is unbearable at times. I get burning sensations, sudden stabs of pain, spasm's, all come and go. I've heard the sensations being compared to somebody using a voo doo doll and poking us randomly with pins and needles. If I can keep moving all day, the pain begins to subside. That can also be exhausting.
