pins and needles

I find that when I sit in the same position for even short periods of time (10-15 mins) I get pins and needes/dead leg if I am crossing my legs or something. Does that happen to anyone else?

Yes, I experience that quite regularly. Have you been diagnosed with Fibro? It's one of common symptoms. Hang in there. I know it's hard sometimes.

Yes, you will probably experience things new and different at any time. The cause is not known but anxiety and depression can cause these things as well. Other underlying conditions can also cause the same symptoms you are experiencing. I would suggest to keep a journal about your day to day activities and pain quotient and relay on to your doctor since doctors only give you 5 to 15 minutes to discuss your case its wise to write down questions and get them answered without forgetting as you walk out the door. The doctor will get to know you better too. Have you been diagnosed? If not please see a Rheumatologist for they will diagnose and start treatment but you will need more than one doctor as time goes on because different symptoms brings in different doctors. Fibromyalgia mimics other conditions so do get this checked out.

Thanks for your replies. Yes I have been diagnosed by a Rhumenologist.
