I have been suffering pains in my legs since a child, which they dismissed as growing pains. I am now 38 and have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. In the last 2 weeks the pain in both legs have become unbearable, especially early evening to nighttime. They seem to throb like a tooth ache would, also have very sore tender points on my thighs, exactly same place. I cannot relax in bed without my hotwater bottle its a god send, I am also on usual pills, amtriptyline, cipralex, tramadol and paracetemol but the pain is still there. Even hot baths do not do anything. On ceratin occasion I wake at night and my legs feel extremely numb like I have lost feeling in them, and its not the only time, if i lay on settee to watch film I ll get up to go to loo and legs have gone from underneath me. I have an appointment with doc again next weel but just wondered if anyone else experiances this ?? is it common with Fibro??
