Hi, pardon me for getting right to it but I can't afford to see a doctor at the moment and would like some experienced opinions. Thank you in advance. I have fibro, I know that. But I suspect I have some degree of nerve damage too--probably from crushed discs and sciatica. I know when I'm having a fibro flair-up but I also get these tremendously intense and sudden but fleeting (thank heavens!) pains in various parts of my body--usually tops of my feet or lower legs--that either wake me up or make me literally yell and jump, checking to see if I either just got bit by something or shocked somehow. Does fibro cause such pain or do you think that might be more a nerve damage thing? Is there anything that can stop this? I can no longer do my job as an NCMA (medical assistant) b'c of this. It's too dangerous for me to do needle sticks anymore. I hope someone can shed some light here. I'll be glad to answer any questions if it will help. Thanks again.
