    Hi is there anyone out there who has burning/stinging pain as well as aching? I get all my pain mostly in the lower body but I thought that FMS was widespread pain. Is it possible to have FMS and only have pain in legs/hips/buttocks. Also does anyone know if peripheral neuropathy is a feature of FMS. Thank you so much Pauline

    I get burning pain in my feet and legs. I think it's part of FM as my rheumatologist has quite a few FM patients with it.

    He suggested Lyrica for it but I feel like I'm on too many meds as it is right now.

    It's been really bad lately, partly due to too much going on and partly due to the humid weather.

    Good luck.....

    Hi Pauline, I get burning on my feet, legs, thighs, abdomen, and torso, though not usually all at the same time.

    I have been diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy of unexplained origin.

    I have CFS, no FM.

    I was given Neurontin to ease the sensations, but the side effects were too much for me (made me feel dopey and think slow.) So I AM aware of the feeling of burning, but I am trying to not let it take control of my awareness. When it's not burning, then it is an icy tingling.

    You are not alone. I have read on this board that a number of our members have PN with FM, so you should get plenty of replies.

    Best Wishes,
    Barry
