Fibromyalgia Symptom List

Muscle & Tissue-Related Fibromyalgia Symptoms

Pain and generalized morning stiffness in the involved muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia that may arise from such structures surrounding the neck, shoulders, upper and lower back, hips, knees, inner and outer elbow, wrists, fingers,toes, and chest as well as from injured or old operative sites.

Pain can assume any form and intensity such as throbbing, burning, stabbing, stinging, grabbing, or any combination of these.

Joints may be swollen, red and hot, or just painful as in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

Numbness of the extremities or face and tingling anywhere arise from contracted structures pressing on on nearby nerves.

Facial and head pains spring from the neck or skull bone connections (sutures).

Feelings resembling electrical impulses in the muscles

Leg and foot cramps

A feeling of general weakness

Tiny parts of muscles often twitch

Restless leg syndrome

Miscellaneous Fibromyalgia Symptoms

Weight gain

Lower grade fever with night sweats

Lowered immunity to infections

Morning eyelid and hand swelling from water retention that slowly gravitates to the lower extremities and by evening stretches tissues, impinges surface nerves and causes the restless leg syndrome.

Skin-related Fibromyalgia Symptoms

Undue sweating

Various rashes may appear with or without itching: hives, red blotches, acne, tiny red or clear bumps, blisters, eczema, seborrheic or neurodermatitis, and rosacea.

Nails are often brittle, or they peel or chip.

Hair is of poor quality and either breaks or falls out prematurely, sometimes in bunches.

Strange sensations are common, including cold, heat, especially of the palms, soles, and thighs, crawling, electric vibrations, prickling, hypersensitivity to touch, and flashing that is sometimes accompanied by somewhat pungent and irritating sweat.
