Did anyone have this allergic reaction acute illness before getting Fibro? I did and we never found out what caused the illness but I looked like I had been in a car wreck after a week of this and was also hospitalized. Causes hard skin nodules to appear on arms, shins, hands, and feet. After a week & treatment with steroids they turn into a large bruise. At each site it is my understanding that your body is fighting it's own tissue. Very painful. Curious as I had this 25+ years ago and was told it would probably happen again in my life. Just wondering if there could be any relation to having this then getting Fibro.
