Hi am new to everything fibro. Have not been diagnosed as yet but have a lot of the symptoms. Would like to ask about the flares I have read about. My pain levels in my legs have been getting steadily worse over the past 3 years.Cannot touch my thighs without acute pain. Various trigger points else where. The thing is this pain is always there, it does not flare as such.Can the symptoms be unremitting? Muscles are increasing stiff and my walking is awful. My balance is shocking and getting worse. My legs feel as if someone has hit them with a baseball bat and that is all along the thigh area. I cant tolerate even the cat walking over them.Do others experience problems walking. I actually feel as if my legs don't belong to me. This is so frightening. I am 55 but up until 5 years ago was fit doing lots of sport. Now all i can do is walk but am wobbly when I do it.
I have other tender points over my back and chest but my legs cause me so much grief. Its the wobbly feeling which really frightens me.
