crying in laughter as well as pain

I know a lot of people are having a really hard time with they're Fibro. With my jokes I'm trying to lighten our lives with laughter. Even so the last few weeks it's only laughter that has stopped me from crying 24/7 (except when I've laughed so hard it's brought tears to my eyes).

Life is just one big round of pain. I'm never free from it. The latest pain is a neurological disorder (can't spell it) so i have permanent pins&needles in my hands and feet. Some times it's so intense i go numb and when they do come back to life it hurts like hell. It feels like if you put really cold hands in hot water and your nerve endings scream at you. Some days using my mouse can set of a really bad attack or holding a book or a pen. So everyday tasks are a nightmare.

My hands and feet also can start going bright red and not only do they as if there're burning they are also hot to touch.

Anyone else have same problem, if so ant tips.

ps... lookout for more jokes
