Hi, all. It took a lot of trial and error to log in to this board now that I've changed browsers, but since I finally managed to do it, I have some questions that may or may not be relevant to fibro. If not, please excuse me for sidetracking the discussion. I have multiple health conditions, and when I ask my doctors about certain symptoms, the say they don't know what's going on and then refer me to one of my other doctors--who then refers me back to the first doctor or to yet another one. The one good thing about this is that for the moment, the symptoms I'm trying to deal with are relatively mild. But if possible, I want to figure this out before things get any worse. Here's what's going on: For the last week or two, my right thigh muscle has felt sore and achy. I thought for a while it was because of stress I was putting on my right knee. So I stopped the activity (activities) I thought might be responsible. But the pain is still there and even seems to be spreading. Today, I also felt a slight burning in the area of the aching. I have tried massaging the area in case the problem might be related to circulation, but although the massage makes me feel a bit better while I'm doing it, the pain comes back after I stop. Meanwhile, I've been waking up every morning with pain and stiffness in my toes. I have both multiple sclerosis and diabetes, either of which *might* be the cause, but neither my neurologist nor my diabetic adviser seems to think the symptoms fit. In the past, I've been very impressed by the range of knowledge on this board--and by the generosity of board members to help. So I thought I'd ask if this sounds familiar to anybody. Thanks in advance for any information/ideas/suggestions you might have. Laura R.M.
