Hi Everyone,

This is my first post here and I have a question. Do any of you have problems with your legs falling asleep no matter what position you are in and or your legs feeling like they will give out on you? This has been happening more and more frequently within the last few weeks and I saw my Doctor and he doesnt think it is fibro related. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

gentle hugs,Susie

Hi Joy- nice to have you here. I have that everyday and I know it is fibro. My feet go numb- I feel tingling down my legs etc. I know other people have the problem to. I don't know of any remedy. I take tons of supplements but thusfar they don't seem to help that. I've just gotten to the point where I choose to ignore it. I know it stinks but at least you are not the only one!

I heard that poor circulation goes along with fibro. So I guess we should all try to move more lol...

I have recently started to feel tingling going down my calves to my ankles and my feet start to feel asleep. It mostly feels this way if I sit for a long period of time and don't put my feet up. I am going to my rhemetologist Friday, so I am gonna ask if he thinks this is related to fibro.

I have that problem with my left leg and foot. Drives me crazy. Not sure except by walking around to help it if you dont fall from numbness.

Mine are in both but I have more problems with my right leg in general. I know I've said this before but I get it on my nose!!! Right now my nose is numb. Sometimes it is cold to touch when numb other times it is not.

Ok I just touched my nose- right now it is cold LOL

Hi guys, lol(OK & girls) Have you ever asked your doc if it could possibly be Neuropathy? The reason I ask, I have the same symptoms and it is Neuropathy. The condition is most often associated with diabetes, but I don't have that. My doc thinks it is most likely from pinched nerves in my back which is riddled with degenerative arthritis. Worth asking about.
