    I know this probably sounds CRAZY, but in this flare up, I not only for the first time have a burning sensation on my skin that comes and goes, but also my stomach muscles feel "tight", sometimes making it feel like I can't get a deep breath. Is this another part of FM?????? It seems that each flare up gets worse with more symptoms. I think this time is bad because it is also triggered by a car accident. I am tiredof doctoring, am so depressed, and anxious. I don't know how else to explain this sensation. It is always bugging me when I am sitting, not so much when I am laying down. It is as if the stomach muscles will not relax. Anyone else feel this way, or am I going crazy??????????

    If you're describing what I think you are, I suffer the same as well. It doesn't feel like a stomach ache, however, it feels like a tightening and burning sensation. It feels better when I stretch, so I think it is muscular. Maybe you should have your stomach checked out just to be on the safe side. I myself am also sick of doctoring. Try massaging the area that is bugging you and see if you feel better. Hope you feel better soon. Tes

    I have myofacial pain syndrome-and this is the type of pain I get.I't worse if I'm riding in car a long time and when I'm having a "flare".
    If you never heard of it-type it in search messages on top of page.Maybe something else-but I would read it and see if it sounds like your symptoms.
