    Fibromyalgia can cause an enormous number of symptoms and this very well could be one of them, but you have to  be careful.  A study found that FM patients suffered from a good number of undiagnosed and treatable disorders that they attributed to FM. You should inform your doctor about any new particularly painful or unusual symptom that you have to be sure that's not due to something else.  

     In FM it's often good to keep a diary that contains the medications you take, the activities you do, your sleep etc. and your symptoms to see if you can spot what triggers them. Good luck!

    Here are some links that might be useful for you as you're dealing with these symptoms and this condition:

      Thank you  for your reply. I'm almost certain this is my fibro acting up. However  It may be time to check out the tingling at least.
