    I don't have this problem, but you might get more responses if you did another post and were more specific in your post title.

    Not in that area but I have the pins and needles and a stinging sensation. Mine are usually in my arms and hands. Occasionally on my thighs.

    I have pins and needles, numbness and tingling mostly in my left leg. Started out there, then traveled to my arm, both feet....That is what started me on the search of what the heck was wrong with me.

    In the lower ribs on the left side I get most of my pain and it can escalate into burning if I am not careful. The skin is actually a bit numb to the touch. I think it might have been from the epidural when I gave birth 12 years ago. That location has never been the same.

    Last year I started to have tingling in the right side of my face. I saw several neurologists and none of them could find anything wrong. Now that my GP has decided that I probably have FM they have attributed the tingling to that.

    Not sure how helpful this is.
