Burning in My inner Thighs
5 Replies
jennloth - March 20

I have severe burning in my inner thighs. It feels like someone lit a match, and is placing it on my inner thighs. The ER doctor told me that it was related to my Fibromyalgia. Has anyone had this before? The only relief that I get is putting a Lidoderm Patch on the affected area, and even that doesn't take all of the pain away.

Hi Jennloth

I am sorry that this is happening to you. My fibro changes its "type" of pain fairly often, sometimes within minutes of each other, and one of them is a burning sensation. I usually have it on my calfs and on my neck. So that sounds "fibro-ish" to me.

Fibro pain comes in many forms, and many other people have written in books that sometimes they feel a burning in their muscles and such. Unfortuantly I haven't found anything that makes it go away, so I cannot help you with that.

Just an idea - I'm not sure exactly where your pain is - but have a look at one of those anatomical charts like you see in dr.'s offices. Actually, just google "dermatomes map." That will show you certain areas of the body that are related to the nerves that reach out from your spinal cord. Each nerve supplies sensation to a certain area.

Sometimes when you are having burning pain, it is because you have a pinched nerve or a herniated disk - and it's the nerve that supplies feeling to the skin in that particular area (dermatome) that is injured. You could have other back problems too that would affect the nerves. Sometimes it goes away on its own. If it's really bothering you, a seated MRI is a good diagnostic test to show up back problems. A spinal doc or a neurologist might be able to help. Good luck with it, sounds miserable.

jennloth - It may be nerve pain which is a common problem among people with Fibromyalgia (FMS). Gabapentin is usually prescribed for this issue. Feel better and take care.

My pain has changed. I'm not getting like stabbing pains right in the part of the cheek that is possibly where the leg joins the body. Sorry I'm not up on medical terms. This stabbing pain is sending pain shooting down my legs and last night it was about 10 on my pain scale, if not higher. After taking 2 asprin + codeine tablets, the pain subsided a quite a bit.

It has just occurred to me, that I don't remember ever having pain like this before I started on the lyrica.

Simple asprin with codeine in it helps me and so do anti-inflammatry tablets.

This is - I'm not getting like stabbing pains right in the part of the cheek - was suppose to say I am getting stabbing pains.

Anyway I just went outside and walked around watering the garden for 1/2 and hour and the pain has gone.

I sometimes think that moving around as much as possible is the way to go, instead of sitting too much.
