    Hi, I have posted lately about my lower leg pain and now the pain has let up but now there is numbness at times and intense itching along the top area along both shins to ankles.There is no swelling, redness or anything visable. My Dr. said it was probabely tendonitis or Fibro related. Anyone else have these symptoms??

    Never thought about this being fibro related. think it must be now.

    I went thru a period where I thought I would scratch all my skin off! It also was my legs and also the numbness. It went away(itchiness) but still have pain and numbness..

    This is a crazy dd

    My toes feel like they are broken most of the time and my shins used to feel like they were on fire. I go through itense bouts of itching on the tops of my feet going towards the ankles.

    Has anyone noticed changes in there skin overall? My skin has become almost tissue like. It tears if I scratch. Also I have been breaking out in acne, ALOT.

    Itching is a default "feeling". So if your body is unable to decipher a sensation, it will be felt as a itch.
    Maybe that is the reason so many of us itch?????
