    Absolutely nerves are the cause. I suffer from formication as well as all the other symptoms of fibromyalgia.

    I suffer from formication as well but have found that if I just leave it alone, don’t scratch, don’t even touch it, it does go away. I tell myself that it’s just my fibro acting up and to leave it alone.

  3. i don’t think that telling readers that “the brain simply registers pain that’s not really there” is a good idea when those who are suffering from fibro and others are in the process of raising awareness. believe me the pain is 110% there alright i live it every day . the signals may be false but NOT the pain.please choose your words wisely as the stigma that fibro is “all in our heads” is slowly but surely being erased and statements like these are probably what helped create the stigma in the first place.

    Yes it definitely does feel like bugs under the skin and you can end up making your skin bleed because you just can’t get rid of the feeling, one of my worst symptoms is overheating and constant sweating and having to turn on the air conditioning
    When everyone else w@nts the heater on. it’s such an overwhelming disease
