    I have read most of the post on this board and must say it does get very confusing. I say this because I was diagnosed with CFIDS 20 or more years ago. When I read the posts I also seem to have alot of FM symptoms. I gave up going from doctor to doctor and specialist as no one could make any definite diagnoses where FM is concerned.

    I have noticed for years that my skin is very tender. Hubby sometimes just rubs his hand on my arm and I just about hit the roof. Do any of you suffer from this and is this a symptom of ME or is it FM.

    With regards to waking with agonizing body pain I also get this. I battle to sleep through the night because of this and in the morning I need to lie on my back for a while before I slowly untangle my muscles enough to get out of bed. I think the best way to describe the muscle pains is like muscle spasms. I am having alot of problems with this at the moment I get them all the way down my right side and is made worse when I lie on that side. I seem to go through phases.

    Any comments would be gratefully appreciated.

    Sometimes I have that with my scalp. It is intermittent.

    Your symptoms sound quite similar to many of the ones I suffer. I was first diagnosed with FM and now CFS. The skin sensation I associate with FM because I've always had that.

    I also get nerve pain in my hands and feet as well. At night I take my sleeping pill and my pain pill together in order to sleep through the night. It's more pain that wakes me up that anything else.

    Wish I could say better things other than you're not alone with these symptoms.

    No it has been a problem for years although there are times when it is much sensitive than others.

    Hi Eileen thanks for the post yes I also wake upp because of the pain. I take pain medication and sleeping pills at night to no avail. Seeing the doctor tomorrow hopefully he can give me something to help.

    Have a nice day.
