New fibro symptoms or something else?

Hi all, sorry not been on for a while, been in a lot of pain and had people in and out with adaptions.

The past 2 weeks I've been having unusual pains and feelings in my spine, arms and legs. If I turn my head a certain way I get sharp electric shocks going through my spine and into my arms and legs. Every day, all day I've got an intense constriction type pressure affecting my middle and lower back which is causing sharp pins and needles in my left arm and a numbing feeling through my left leg which in turn is making me walk more funny than I was with fibro pain.

Im seeing gp on the 10th and optition tomorrow I'. e noticed my eye sight goes blurry every so often.

Sorry it's a bit of a depressing post but just feeling a little concerned cause my body's starting to scare me lol.

Hope all are well despite the wet weather :-D

Hi RayLewis88 it's fine to come & go as you will my friend, that's the good thing about the forum, we're always here ☺ I am sorry you are experiencing all this pain & discomfort. It's very difficult really because we are not doctors but it sounds like you need to speak to your gp tomorrow on the phone if you can tell him or her your symptoms and let them decide if they want to see you before your booked appointment.

It sounds like you have trapped nerves to me, which can be caused by different things. I get most of the symptoms you are experiencing and mine is damaged nerves in my back and it effects my arms, hands, legs and feet, with stabbing pains & pins n needles & numbness. I have Polymyagia aswell as fibromyalgia so it's hard to say which is flaring up. I also have blurred vision sometimes which has been put down to low blood pressure but there are so many things serious that it could be, so let us know how you get on.

Peace, luv n light

I too was going to guess at the trapped nerve.

I go to a chiropractor every 3 weeks. So that had helped withthat. I know some insurances cover, not sure of all do. But chiropractor has helped me a lot.

Take care. ××

Hi RayLewis88

I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? I am so genuinely sorry to read this my friend and I have pasted you an excerpt from the *Spine Health website below:

*The most common cause of neuropathic pain is pain from spine disorders. Symptoms caused by neuropathy are described as severe, sharp and shooting or deep and burning pain; or persistent numbness, tingling or weakness that travels into the arms, hands, legs or feet.

It may be worth discussing this with your doctor to ascertain the cause of the pain? I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck and please take care of yourself my friend.

All my hopes and dreams for you
