    I was diagnosed with Fibro 4 years ago, I have aquired a new pain! Both shoulders. Feels like bursitis, but it is in both shoulders! It is very painful to "flap" my arms like a chicken, not that I do that often, and when I lie down my shoulders ache and it is very painful to change positions at night. Anyone ever have this????

    I think it is fairly common with FMS.

    I entered the CFS/FM world with CFS, and have now added the FM elements. When I am flaring, or maybe it's mostly when I'm herxing, trying to sleep pain-free is impossible. I feel like someone has beaten me up on my shoulders and arms and hands.

    my shoulders hurt so much you would not believe! its right on the outside; the deltoids side and its a large painful lump-- or I should say its a large lumpy area. Sometimes it hurts all the way down to my elbows.. I had a grandbaby snap a pic of my arms and I could not believe what they look like.... At night it is so painful to to lie on either side. I cant stay on my back too long because I had back surgery with hardware in place and so that rules out lying on my stomache... I have wondered if anyone else suffers with their shoulders like that.. oh yes! I forgot... I use lidoderm patches and they do help. but they go on for 12 hrs and off 12 hrs... sometims i put them on at night so I can sleep

    Unfortunatley, this is Fibromyalgia.

    It really SUCKS big time!!!

    10 years for me and still counting.

    There are not many places on my body that I do not have PAIN.

    Yes I have both shoulders, elbows, knees, the points in the chest and both hips 24 hours a day 7 days a week for over 7 years now. I don't get much sleep because of it. Very painful. We are going to try a memory foam mattress, they say that may help take the pressure off the points of pain.

    IM SORRY YOU HURT! YES MY 19 Y OLD AND I HAVE SEVERE ARM /SHOULDER PAIN. LIGHTLY RUB THAT AREA EACH DAY HELPS PLUS TRY RUBBING ( SOUNDS WEIRD AND WHY IN THIS SPOT) ABOVE COLLAR BONE ON THE SIDE THAT HURTS WORST OR BOTH SIDES. I FIND THIS LOOSENS EVERYTHING UP ALITTLE ,SEEMS TO HELP ME AND SON. (WARNING ,DO LIGHTLY CAN CAUSE BAD MIGRAINE.) GOD BLESS- BLKKAT

    It feels like my shoulders have been pinned down to the bed. Both during the night and especially when I awake. It goes away pretty quickly though..once I shower.

    This doesn't go away, I have it all day and all night. I can't sleep on my sides because of it and on my back I have to support my shoulders so they don't hang lower than my neck to sleep. Nothing helps.
