Creepy, Crawly, Air Bubbles, Tingling, Numbing, Vibrating Feelings in my Legs, Feet and Other Areas…Fibromyalgia?

creepy crawly 1    These crawly feelings I can feel in my legs, feet,    thighs, arms, side, shoulders, and the tinglings in my hands as if they are going to sleep.  It is so annoying as it haunts me every night when I get in bed and try to rest.  I am tossing and turning trying to find a comfortable way to hold my legs and stop the vibrating feelings.

During the day when I am walking and keeping busy, I don’t even think about it.  I only feel it when I stop or sit down to rest.  Night time when I am trying to sleep is when it is annoying. I am beginning to feel it more often in my feet.

It feels like a cell phone that is vibrating or buzzing in my legs.  Itrestless-leg-questionnaire-300x187 also feels like feathers, or crawling ants up and down my legs.  It is most annoying. It is bad enough trying to sleep with fibromyalgia, and now to have something else distracting you from sleep, is not good.

I was curious to see if these vibrations were part of fibromyalgia, so I googled fibromyalgia vibrations.  A lot of information came up regarding fibromyalgia vibrations, and some of the information was described as the same feelings that I am having. A lot of people left comments about the feelings they were feeling in their legs, arms, and feet like vibrations of some sort.  They, too, expressed they do not know where they came from.  I searched further into the symptoms of fibromyalgia, and found that some people do have these tingling vibrating sensations, and not to be alarmed. I pray that it is nothing else serious.

I also read that it could be Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS).  But, after reading about RLS, the description is more of a pulling feeling that sometimes hurt and stings.  My vibrations do not hurt at all, so I am not sure what it is.

If anyone else have any of these feelings, please share them with me. Living with fibromyalgia is a real experience that teaches us patience and many other ways of coping in order to maintain a doable lifestyle.  I try not to give in to all of the many faces of fibromyalgia, but I must admit — some of them are very scarey!
