Hi all, my first post.
I went to GP this morning about symptons which have bothered my for some time. I had spoken to another Dr in the practice about them and another problem (but as she wasn't available till Friday I agreed to see this chap instead) she decided to get my other probs checked out first so arranged a hospital appointment for a scan on my tummy which turned out ok on all counts, still have the pain though!
On waking up, usually around 5am, I feel severe burning and sweating and itching, starting in my neck and travelling across my shoulders, up into my head and it sometimes eventually travels down to my waist. I also experience very dry and pins and needles in my tongue and mouth. I experience what I call 'inner shaking'. I feel my body shakes but if my husband holds my hand he can't feel it. It seems to be with me most of the time and I don't know if I'm imagining it but I now see little trembles in my hands. I use crutches if i'm likely to be standing when out - which is seldom, 2 sticks for walking short distances and a wheelchair for longer distances
I was diagnoses FM about 15 years ago although I've struggled with pain and exhaustion since the 60's.
Back to my GP this morning. What advice did he offer me? He suggested I buy a book, I think on self help or similar, that the comedien Ruby Welsh wrote!!
Anyway, does anyone else experience this burning, itching and pins and needles in their mouth?
Sorry for waffling on.
