This may have absolutely nothing to do with fibromyalgia (it may be related to my MS), but it does involve hypersensitivity; so I thought I'd ask about it. For quite a while now, I've felt some irritation on the top and outside of my feet, especially the right foot. For a while, the skin around my ankle bone on the left foot was so irritated (and dry) that it cracked open and bled. I've been putting moisturizer on my feet for the last month or two, but now the irritation is getting bad enough that sometimes it hurts to wear shoes. It even hurts when the bottom edges of my pants touches the skin. While this has been going on, the pigmented purpura I've had on my feet and legs for several years has been spreading up my legs. (The doctors I've seen about this, including a dermatologist, didn't seem very worried about it. But I haven't mentioned the irritation/pain. Maybe the two are connected.) Does this sound familiar to anybody? I'm not even sure what questions to ask--or which doctor to ask! Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer. --Laura R.M.
