Painful lumps

The last few weeks I have lots of tiny lumps and larger ones that have come up under the skin on my arms,now I have 2 larger ones in my breast and also small ones that come and go on the coller bone.When I touch them they are really painful.I have also had pins and needles and numbness in the hands and fingers,is this all part of fibromyalgia,I was wondering about dercums disease has anyone heard of this.

    Pls make an appointment to see your GP as soon as you can.

  • GP Monday- No excuses!

  • Hi everyone,I went to my GP,he only looked at one of the lumps and was very cross with me for wasting hes time,he said its all to do with the fibromyalgia,he would not look at the rash or any other lumps just the one on the crease of my arm.He said just to take anti inflammatorys.He was so rude to me and made me feel like I was making a fuss over nothing.I moved a few months ago so had to change to this GP.The lumps have today gone into my lower legs and are very painful.I feel dizzy and waves of nausea keep coming over me.I don't know really what to do next,other than going for a private blood test just to rule out any inflammation.My daughter said I must look for another doctor which I will do.I feel so very sorry for all the people that have him as a GP.
