    Hi all:

    This has been happening to me quite frequently lately. I'll feel like there's a bug biting my leg but there's nothing there. Besides FM/CFS (depending on which of my dr's you talk to) I've also been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy in both lower legs/feet and hands/arms. So I'm used to weird sensations of lack of feeling, numbness, tingling, etc. Many of those shooting, burning pains have been relieved by the Topamax and Gabitril that I'm -- but this bug-biting sensation is fairly recent. Just wondering if anyone here has experienced the same thing.

    I don't post often but do enjoy reading and learn a lot from all the other posts.

    Of course there are so many pains with the condition it is hard to say, but talking about bugs biting, those little critters called bed bugs are on the increase. I have experienced a Gnawing sensation in the region between the outer shin and calf muscle area though if this is what you mean by bug biting sensation.

    Mine feel like bee stings and I'm always swating myself thinking I'm being bit. My hubby thinks I'm going crazy I thinkk but it really feels like something is there biting me.
