One Terrible Painful spot in the back of my head
13 Replies
Dee - November 20

I have been having all the usual symptoms, the burning hands,feet,face, shoulders, etc, but I also have a very painful spot on the lower left side of my head (neck), (comes & goes) has anyone else hand similar pain?

It sounds like it could be one of the trigger points. Try applying heat and if you can take ibruprofen see if that won't help.

Jean: Thank you, I'll give it a try!!

Hi Dee: let me know if it works for you.

Dee, I have similar pain on the top left part of my head. It seems like if I get stressed or tense, I get a sharp pain up my head to that point. It goes away but just very irritating. Does yours seem to stay? Take care and God bless!

I tried the heating pad for a few days and it seems to help, but I have been having terrible (tingling/burning) pain in my face, neck, left arm and left leg.. I have a whole new respect for folks with Fibro.. This is a terrible disease and I hope they someday find a cure... Thank you for your advice!! Dee

Actually the pain comes and goes and pressure applied to the area seems to help some.. I have also found (thanks to Jean) that heat really helps.. I also use an ice pack on occasion which seems to help.. I have been having more (tingling & burning) pain on my left side the last few days and have had a tough time sleeping.. Pain medication seems to be very little help.. I am presently waiting for the results of some more test I had taken recently, but this all gets to be very discouraging since most doctors don't even consider Fibro a disease.. It sure causes alot of pain for something that is not a disease!! Thank you for your note.. Dee

I have the same symptoms.. There seems to be very little doctors can do to help. Mine says I should see a shrink! Good luck.

Are you under a great deal of Stress? That can cause the pain also.I have fibro and I have the burning in my hands and feet and headaches on a regular basis. I hope things get better for you soon!

I have gone through the same thing for many years and I am told that I just have to deal with it. I think they have given me about every drug on the market and they have done me no good at all. I hope you have better luck.

Have you been checked out for Diabetes?


Dee - November 20

No, But I will get checked for it. Maybe that will give me some answers. Thank you

Get as much ruled out as you can so you are sure of a correct diagnosis. This is not fun that is for sure. Stay in touch and let us know how you are doing.
