Hi Flower47,

Numbness is a symptoms of fibromyalgia. I get numb hips, tights, heels and face. I was referred to MRI and neurologist when I finally decided to tell the doctor as my back started hurting and also got numbness there. Maybe talk to your doctor about your symptoms and ask to be referred to someone who can rule out any other issues.

If the numbness continues to concern you call 111 for advice. Or if needs be go to A&E.

I like Clumsy_Mrs have had MRI's done about it - two full bodies and then just my pelvis. I have a worn down vertebra but its not serious and that was all that they had to say really! Xxxx

Hi there so it can be quite normal the numbness this is something I didn't know so thank you x


Hey Hun,

So my pain is mostly based in my pelvis and spine, but over the years has moved down into my legs. I get severe shooting pains in them along with a stabbing sensation and they also give way which is fun! As for numbness, I get it mainly in my hands and feet but sometimes in my legs as well. I know it is really scary and concerning but it is part of what fibro entails. At first you will get symptoms and pains that you think cannot possibly be connected but after time and speaking to others you realise its 'normal' if anything about Fibro is normal! Best thing to do is what you've done - book an appointment with your GP but also post on here, you will find hundreds of people who are feeling like you are and that always makes you feel a bit better xxxx
