hopefully i can explain this right for everyone, and get some feedback. i've been through a stage of this earlier when my FM kicked into full gear, and unfortunately it's back. lately i've been having these feelings like my insides, like everything under my skin, is vibrating. it comes on sporadically during the day, and most annoyingly, when i'm trying to sleep. i'll fall asleep for a few minutes, only to "flash" awake. my eyes will be wide, my heart is beating faster, and i have a feeling of being really on edge, very agitated. when my heart slows down a bit, i get this wave of heat, and will just a big coat of sweat on me. this happens several times during the night. it also happens intermittently during the day. my heart starts beating fast out of nowhere (i could be lying down, standing up... doesn't matter). then the "hot flash". i just feel like my body is on high alert. it's not panic attacks. i know what those are like, and know it's definately not that. i'm going to the doctor Monday, and would like to figure something out to help with this, as my sleep is highly interrupted (more than usual), thus my pain levels are up. i was thinking that possible a benzo (valium, colonpin) may help for awhile til this symptom passes (hopefully soon). i was also thinking it may help with the severe muscle tightness i'm experiencing. the flexeril is just not helping. does anyone understand what i'm trying to explain? does it sound like something else? or just an FM symptom? any ideas on meds to help for a little while? thanks for any input, it's very much appreciated.
