Chronic pain is just one of the many symptoms that fibromyalgia almost always shows, but for me it is most common. Pain affects all aspects of my life. Expensive payment for all the physical activities I do. Even the smallest task can lead to a major increase in my symptoms. The pain of fibromyalgia is unique because of the severity, complexity and multiple systems involved. There are three main types of pain in fibromyalgia: hyperalgesia, allodynia and paresthesia.
Hyperalgesia is literally translated as excessive pain: “Hyper” means excess and “algeia” means pain. Is the medical term to intensify the pain fibromyalgia.La allodynia is the pain you feel when touching or rubbing the piel.Por for example light pressure on clothes or light massage causes pain or a slight breeze blows on the skin hypersensitive to stimuli that do not normally cause. dolor.La paresthesia is a weird nervous feeling that feels like something creeping, teeth, burning, itching or numbers like a feeling in the middle of the foot or a burning sensation in the espalda.Pero to be honest, these words mean little to those who have fibromyalgia .Entonces, to give people who have no idea what it means to live this painful and debilitating disease, 1. Burning of the skin. Sometimes my skin looks fire, it looks raw. Imagine spending hours under the sun without sun protection and then taking a bath in the ocean and salt water that burns damaged skin. So get dressed at night and rub the clothes against the skin. When you have fibromyalgia, clothing can only cause this pain, you do not need sunlight. 2. Acute / Burning Pain This is a pain that is especially difficult for me to bear. It’s so serious that it makes me breathe. The pain comes in waves and is accompanied by nausea. 3. Pain in the joints. My pain in my joints is a throbbing and throbbing pain. This mainly affects my knees, but it can also affect other areas. 4. Muscle PainMy muscles are still sore. Even the smallest activity makes them hit and burn. I find it impossible to feel calm when my muscles hurt, it bothers me. 5. Muscle spasm Experience muscle spasms every day, they are almost constant. It’s as if he didn’t control your body, as if some unforeseen forces manipulated you. 6. Acute pain Feel that someone is using you as a voodoo doll. 7. Between a throbbing and throbbing pain. I’m sure it’s a technical term for this, but “a cross between itching and burning” is the best way to describe it. It is deep in the muscles and it is impossible to scratch it. It also causes a shock in the affected part of my body. 8. Bruise sensation. Not only the skin but also inside, feeling crushed and sensible. 9. Malfunction of the whole body. When I am hypersensitive, I feel an uncomfortable feeling all over my body. The slightest touch or movement sends painful pain around the body. 10. Stiffness Imagine a healthy person going to the gym after months of inactivity. Lift the weights and train your entire body. The next day they feel stiff and have a hard time moving. A person with fibromyalgia wakes up every morning and feels like this. He seems to be wearing a dress under the skin, two sizes too small. 11. Radiated Pain I feel pain that has a central point, but radiates from that time. The pain can start from the back, but also through the legs, for example. 12. Pain caused by contact. Even the slightest touch of a loved one can cause pain. I must have two very large sizes of soft and seamless material. I use soft and flat shoes of larger size and I have to cut my hair because they give me a lot of pain in the skin. Touching causes many of the pain I have described. 13. Migraine / headacheI do not think that a day without a headache, it may be due to tension. Migraine is exacerbated by stress and hormones. If they attack, I will be disgruntled. I lose my vision and the pain is so intense… The slightest movement, touch or sound sends a painful pain around the head and face. 14. Tickling of the skin. It seems like a thousand insects have come around my skin. It’s actually pretty scary. 15. Hypersensitivity. Some days the sound is unbearable. For a moment I feel pain, nausea, dizziness, tremor and a threatening panic attack. But it is not only sound, it is also hypersensitive to smell, light and touch. Yes, a strong perfume scent can hurt me. 16. Irritable Bowel Syndrome.Fibromyalgia is often associated with other conditions, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Contrary to what people may think, IBS pain not only shows up in the gut but also radiates to other parts of the body, especially in the back. It is a sharp and burning pain. The gas that is getting away Gas in an already inflamed gut is one of the most painful symptoms of IBS, it is overwhelming. Pain is not the only symptom of fibromyalgia, but it is the symptom that has the most negative impact on my life and my health.
