    I suffer from both FM & CFIDS, and my skin burns and flushes all over my body. Especially my chest, back, neck, face, ears and head. It is very uncomfortable and it is causing me a lot of anxiety and depression. Does anyone else have this problem or know of someone that does? If so, does anything help? My doctors think it is neurologically related because I had surgery for Spinal Stenosis on my neck. But I think it is being caused by the FM & CFIDS. I've tried Neurontin, Topamax, Cymbalta, Imipramine, Relafen, Naproxen and Vicoden. None of which seem to help.

    Thanks for any help!

    and I read somewhere a while ago (before it started to bother me) what caused it but for the life of me cannot remember what it is.

    Help would be greatly appreciated!

    This seems to be a fairly common FM symptom. Do a search for skin burn and you should find several posts about it.

    Stinks doens't it? Ahhhhhhhhhhh..............

    I have scleroderma. Look this up and you might get some answers. It is not uncommon with our conditions.

    good luck

    My husband has skin burns and flushes also and it is caused by FM. He also uses Ibuprofin it seems to help a little. He is on Cymbalta for his depression. I hope this helps a litte bit. Hang in there.
