Hi there.

Yes.  Fibromyalgia can present with subcutaneous nodules that are exquisitely tender even with the lightest palpation.  This can migrate to other areas once tenderness resolve in one area.  These nodules can symmetrically involve either side of the body.  I also have fibromyalgia and it is important that we get a restorative-form of sleep.  This can be achieved by anti-depressant medications that can be taken before we sleep. I suggest you keep close follow up with your doctor so that changes can be monitored.  Regards and God bless.

thanks for the feedback...i've read up on anti depressants for sleep and pain..i suffer from terrible insomnia(for years) i've also had adverse effects from anti-depressants.. another problem is anti-inflamitories...thay all cause severe edema and raise my blood pressure extremely high and i can't go there, as i've already had a mini stroke(even lyrica causes this.  i've been on darvocet..(.the only medication that agrees with me) and doesn't fry my stomache...also muscle relaxers...i've been on this medication for four years, and as time is going by the pain is getting worse. any suggestions?? i've done pain clinics, phy. therapy, water yoga, water aerobics.. you name it, i've tried it. do you know anything about pain patches or pain pumps. i'm not worried about addiction, if i'm not addicted now i'll never be( i'm very careful) and besides i'll probably be on pain medication forever... i also have other pain issues. i'm open to any and all suggestions. all we sufferers have, is only each other!! thanks, zarkon

I'm so happy that I found Zarkon's post. I'm 22 years old and I have these sore tender spots all over my body and when I rub them I feel small little nodules. The are so tender that if someone accidentally touches one to hard it brings me to tears. The ones on my ribs hurt the most and I have had them for a while and they won't go away. The physicians that I have told won't give me the time a day saying that they are maybe muscle spasms since I have back problems after giving birth. I don't feel like these sore spots are related to that being that I sometimes just randomly even get them on my legs. My mom told me about a commercial that she saw on Fibromyalgia so I decided to research. I have all the symptoms and I'm also starting to notice joint pain especially around my left wrist, right pinky finger, and toes. It worries me because when I told my physician he stated that there isn't good treatment for Fibromyalgia which concerned me. I feel that when I go to the doctors they think I want pain meds which I hate. The pain meds never rid the sore spots so after trying them about twice I don't take anymore do to the side effects. I'm just wondering if there is anything I can do to get rid of all the sore spots and joint pain??? Help!!
