amorvida - Welcome to the board! Take some time to read all of the information contained in the blue boxes on the lefthand side of this page. There is a lot of good information there.

It sounds like you have two things going on. Both of which are common problems associated with Fibromyalgia (FMS).

The prickling and itching sensation are likely nerve pain. Gabapentin is usually prescribed for this issue.

Ther problem you describe with clothing is called "Allydonia." I have it myself so I understand your issues with clothing very well. I have had to revise my entire wardrobe to accomodate my sensitivity to pressure against my skin. My symptoms come and go so I never know what to expect. I spend a lot time in my nightdress when I have no plans out of the house just for comforts sake. Some people find a sports bra to be more comfortable. I have yet to find any bra that doesn't bother me. You just have to experiment to find what type of fabrics feel the most comfortable.

If you have any other questions or need to vent, we are all here to help and listen. Take care.
