I have been experiencing severe pain in all areas of my body for about 2 years now. It is very severe and is with me from the moment I wake up to the moment I am actually able to go to sleep at night. I don't sleep well because of the pain either. I am VERY sensitive to changes in temperature, both hot and cold, but cold seems to be worse. The pain itself is a burning, tingling pain that seems to cause numbness in random places. It also is made worse by being touched. It doesn't even have to be rough and on the contrary, light touch seems to be worse. There are times when it seems to come to a focus and gets hellish, but these pain "bouts" I guess you could say only last between 2 and 30 minutes and occur randomly throughout a day or week. I have had several different MRI scans on different parts of my body and only minor results came back. Nothing that would definatively cause this amount of pain. At this point in time doctors have mentioned both Fibromyalgia and Central Pain Syndrome. Either way it is ruining my life. Both socially and mentally I seem to be withdrawing more and more. I post here hopeful that someone might have a suggestion or like problem. Thank you
