Hello all,
I was wondering if anyone has any advice or comments. First off I have psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia, both diagnosed by a rhumatoligist. For the past few months I have had a pulsating tingling sensation all over my body. It started off where it was just my feet and fingers, then legs and arms. I now have it all over even my lips. This is worse when I am lying on my back for some reason. It is not uncomfortable but it was frightening when it first started. My (now ex) physio told me it was 'imposible' for me to get these symptoms! The medication I am on has been ruled out for causing these symptoms so Im at a loss as what could be causing it. I do know that some Fibro sufferers do get some tingling. But this is like a pulsating, all over body tingling (hard to explain), its like a small electric current going through my body. I have to admit that it is worse when lying on my back and starts almost straight away if I lie down. Any imput from anyone would be most welcome. Many Thanks.

Many Thanks.I too have that feeling when I lie on my back but it's just in my legs, it feels like a current going through my legs at night and only when I lie down. I also get spells of lightheaded ness and small slight pains in my chest, do you have any of these other symptoms?

  • When it first started it was just in my legs (sometimes my fingers/hands) as time has gone on it is now all over. Mine does feel like a small electric current going through my body yes. Its not painful but feels a little weird. I have no chest pain but do get light headed but I have put that down to my other conditions. Hope your feeling better soon.
