    Does anyone suffer from like stabbing and burning pains in their arms and legs? I suffer from them really bad I am quite concerned. They only last a couple of seconds but they are all over my arms, legs and thighs.

    Also, anyone have leg discoloration, purply looking legs I do and it is awful.

    Thirdly, anyone suffer from spider veins at the back of your legs?

    Thanks Kink

    Kink,
    Arms and legs are a common place for those with FM to have pain. I have CFS and FM, and husband has FM. We both have stabbing and burning pains in the arms and legs, and other places as well. They can range from short lived with us, to long and enduring.

    I do have purple mottled skin often on my inner legs. Husband does not. He has spider veins in the backs of his legs, I do not.

    Kinky, I have it also. My Rheumatoligist said it is comes with the territory of FM. I also feel achy most of the time. Kind of like having the flu, but without the fever. but the real fun on is when it feels like someone is twisting your muscles one way while some else is twisting the other way... to me it feels like some is ripping my muscles right off the bone. If you can try laying down and using ice packs that helps sometimes better than heat , I dont know why. I have several of those things that you can buy for coolers at 99cents fold washcloth in half and sew down one long side and one short side. if you dont sew buy some of that narrow iron on tape. what ever works. I keep about 3 washcloths and 5 ice packs.

    Heck , I even went to work with one my hip one day. :) I had on loose clothes and no body knew. got me threw the day.

    I hope I helped

    I have all the pain spots you asked about. Cant help you with the purple or spider veins.

    I have read that the calf muscles is a typical spot.

    Its been really bad the last week. I don't know why. I can totally relate to the purply things on my legs. Mine are in the calf area. First noticed them about a month ago. What the heck are they?

    I to have the same pains in the arms and legs and they seem to be worse at night. Along with the pain my arms hands and feet and legs feel like their on fire. So what I do is get 4 plastic bags and fill them with ice and put them where it hurts the worse for as long as I can stand it. Works most of the time for me, I hope it works for you.

    I have VERY painful elbows and knees. The backs of my legs feel like they are literally going to fall off one day (and sometimes I wish they would). I also have the purply looking legs, especially when they are cold. And we won't even discuss the spider veins..... hang in here.....

    You described my symptoms to a T. Thought the purple stuff was from my weight. Maybe not.

    You have described my symptoms perfectly. I have the purple looking legs also, the right one is worse..they look (splotchy) if you know what I mean. I have the worse stabbing pain in my shoulder! The last couple of days it has been in my knees and hips also. I don't know about the spider vains, I do have vains showing on the top of my leg and one by my tailbone..strange
