Thankyou, I have contacted my gp now and waiting for a call back as its gradually going across my face. I hope it is part of fibro on one hand atleast I will be able to deal with it. X

Arms, yes, nearly every morning when I wake up its one of both arms completely numb, I thought this was one of the main symptoms of Fibro, x

Dr said it's quite common in fibro they have no scientific reason for it but thinks mine is linked to fatigue, xx

Hi Tinkerjack1912

I am so sorry to read that you are experiencing this and I genuinely hope that you can find the answers that you are looking for. This is not anything that I have experienced myself, the only thing in I have had in my face is a pain that is akin to a burning / ache.

I want to wish you all the best of luck.

I wrote down all my symptoms when I first went to the dr. Like you said there are so many different symptoms.
