How I ended up here


I've always been a perpetually cold person. My hands and feet would always be cold. Last winter was the first time that my feet and legs, not all of them, just until the knee were in pain due to the cold. It was settled quickly since I put them up on top of a heater, and I could feel them heal. It was as if my bone was solid frozen. This winter I was out and was not wearing a lot of clothes, and my legs hurt for 12 hours. I was alarmed and started researching, and that's when I got here, at this forum ( if that's how it's defined). I've never been to the doctor for a number of reasons, but since I'm here, I'd like to ask if these are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

Hello, I would say your legs feeling cold was was more due to been out in the cold not wearing much clothing or a circulation problem than it been fibromyalgia !! I would say wear thicker warmer socks this winter It may help. If not please talk with your doctor.

I am so genuinely sorry to read this and as Dizzytwo says it could be a circulation issue? It is very difficult to say? It would probably be best to discuss this with your GP just to ascertain what they think? I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck.

All my hopes and dreams for you
