It may be common for fybromyalgia (pain> sore spots). Fybro is a part of our typical clinical picture (however not always)

nope, you are not right. men are about 1/3 of fybromyalgia cohort. And finally, seems like women appear to present that condition more often parlty because man sometimes are prone to address that condition to their overactive lifestyle, so stats are incomplete and now more and more men come in.

Check it with the doctor. it is not a pregancy which you practically never can have being a male. Men can have even breast cancer (do not worry please, few cases or so for the whole history of contemporary medicine), not saying about fibromyalgia.

Manati -

If youre not already, please begin an exercise regimen. Please be careful. Very light weight. But hit all the muscle groups with at least one set. Then do treadmill ... maybe 5 minutes on an incline of 5.0 ...

Fibro is common in men as well. One of the few things which really helps with Fibro is exercise. You must keep moving.

Manati...what is your previous background...what started your symptoms? do you remember anything specifically unique to the start of the pain? have you been to see a doctor?

hope your situation resolves. Fibro is more commonplace in men than many think....a buddy of mine has it but refuses to call it Fibromyalgia...i think he calls it Chronic Pain disorder though..

So did mine. Exactly 2 months of mostly sedentary lifestyle. Worst thing I could have done.

ALS is motor nerve disorder.

I also think I have fibromyalgia. Last month I developed painfull neck at the front and the pain never goes away, it is hard to cough, take down food etc... It was better for some 5 days in between, but most of the time my low front neck is so tender to touch I yell if I touch it :-(

Apart from twitching, tingling and other pain, I think this may be fibromyalgia. I don't care how many males get it, I seem to be one of them, because my clinical picture points to this direction.

If your case is at all like mine the pain will persist for about 4 months and then fade away. Mine is still present, but it's not nearly as bad as it was when I first became symptomatic. The majority of the time I forget it's there.

have about the same few weeks ago...left side neck and down to the ribs...wow really painful.

in my case it took 3 days to recover and I was applying my own homemade lavender spiritus on me (just becaue it smells good and makes some local anesthesia and local warming, do not think it hepled per se).

In case of front neck it is also worth to check thyroid, it may give some quite a pain in case of thyroididtis
