    HI all, i all that i have read here,i have not noticed anyone saying anything about a wet foot feeling

    I have this quite often and it is so annoying, my feet will all of a sudden feel wet, they arent, but they feel like it.

    also, does anyone else feel like their head is too heavy for their neck. i get this and i just want to prop up my head with something because it feels like it weighs a ton..

    Just wanted to know if this is part of fm or just something i have.

    It could be a parethesia, a weird nerve pain response and yes, that is very common with fibro.

    The nerves are processing a feeling to the brain that isn't accurate. It might be an itch, burning, tingling, bee sting feeling, odd sensations, etc.

    I've had occasions to rip my sheets off in the night thinking a rat just walked over my foot. I felt it! But nothing there.

    And I get a cold, wet feeling in my right forearm, especially if it's resting on any kind of table. I will lift my arm to wipe it off and realize it's not really wet. Feels like it's sitting in a puddle.

    So yeah, your "normal!" lol

    The head could be heavy fatigue. And muscle weakness isn't terribly unusual either.

    If our brains were working the way they should...we would not have this feeling....but if they could talk...My guess is that they would say....Hey come on lets mess with the sensors in feet, yeah lets...make her fee like shes standin in ice water...(or with me its usually my butt, that has that sensation...not pleasant in middle of the night when you wake up wondering if you peed the bed...LOL...glad I haven't regressed that far. It can drive you nuts for sure.

    I have found that when my head feels to heavy for my neck it means I have been slouching to long, so i sit taller and arch my back for a while....helps some...personally, I would love to have a home traction machine....

    If you read the fibronomics thing we have been doing with DR Mark, you will see that the head is one of the areas that gives us fits.....

    Hey, I get that too!!!! Wow! The stuff I hadn't realized...or never could put into words....wet feet, thighs/posterior, heavy head (though I've had whiplash & have damaged that ligament)...i thought it was just me being weird...i also get what I've come to call fibro-eyes-vision changes from day to day(muscle tension around eyes).
    Smile you're never alone, and laughter is the best medicine. As Bobby McFerrin said Don't worry, be happy...an anthem for me...remember stress makes it worse ;)
