A recent study actually uncovered 3 issues those of us with fibromyalgia have more than other folks. They are:
- Paresthesias in the upper limbs (tingling, burning or pins & needles sensations)
- Nose bleeds
Number 1 doesn't surprise me - a lot of us complain of odd nerve sensations like that. Numbers 2 and 3 aren't some that I would have guessed, but they certain prove how global this condition is! Researchers suspect they come from a tendency we have toward lax connective tissues.
Do you experience these "new" symptoms? Did you previously think they were part of fibromyalgia? Take the poll and leave your comments, here or in About.com's Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome community forum.
