    Does fibromyalgia cause lumps under the skin?
    Martin Martin
    April 26, 2008

    I have fibro and now I have lumps that have appeared at the base of my spine on both sides. They seem to go away after I have a massage, although this process is really painful. For two or three days after I get a massage I am unusually lethargic, I have hot and cold sweats, I feel sleepy, and I have stabbing pains in different parts of my body that last a few seconds. I wonder if the lumps are somehow toxic and that the fluids they release are making me sicker? Has anyone else had this problem?

    Hi Martin,

     

    I assume you've spoken to your doctor about these cysts? There are several types of cysts that you could be describing, and it's best to get them checked out by your doctor to be sure that they're not dangerous. Deep tissue massage themselves are well known for leaving people feeling a bit under the weather for a while. Make sure you drink plenty of water after a massage, and definitely talk to your physician about your cysts.

     

    Good luck to you!

    I'm not sure about the toxins or the muscle spasms but I have tried Lyrica and I had a terrible reaction to it!  I took it 3 times and was severely itchy for a week!! But this medication is supposed to be very good for Fibromyalgia pain...just another point of view.  I really hope you find your answer...I know how frustrating it is to cope with the pain, and find a solution that works.  Good luck.

    Hello:

     

    When a muscle goes into a spasm, it goes into protection mode.  Although we are full of toxin's, the best way to eliminate them is to have a bath with Epson Salts every night.

     

    The hot and cold sweats are probably from your pills, have you tried Lyrica?  I have taken it for 4 years for my Fibromyalgia and it is great,
