i have never seen a post on this, but was wondering if any other fibro patients have knots or bumps under the skin on arms and upper legs? i have had them for may years as has my niece. they range in size from a pea to a quarter and you cannot stand to touch them , they are so painful. she gave me a tip that has really helped. she told me to buy a small wand massager vibrator(we got ours at target) but she told me that it would hurt, but to hold it on the bumps until they will make a little pop which feels just like a sweat bee has stung you, but when that happens, the pain instantly stops. it worked for me as she told me it would. this is just another tip that i use when it gets unbearable. i told my dr. about it and he says -whatever helps you , try it. hope it helps someone else. but i just wondered if anyone has this problem. for i have had to put up with it for years.
