Sore with no explanation

Jul 11, 2018 7:43 PM

At times my skin feels like I am bruised. Mostly the back of my neck and shoulders but other areas of my body get it too. Even just putting on a jacket hurts. Anyone else ever experience this?

Yes I get this. A heating or cooling gel can help?

This is exactly what I get most days ALL over my body. Even the bottom of my feet! The webbing of you miles of nerves can get inflamed. Also doctors habe said it could be neurological and you brain feels pain differently. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Fibro is the nerve webbing and myalgia refers to the pain. Doctors still dont know a lot about how is starts.

I've never tried heating or cooling gel. I might try next time.
I'm a little nervous to go to a doctor. I know getting a diagnosis can be really difficult.

I get this a lot. Heat works for me. Sometimes I can't wear a shirt.
