As I have a Fibromyalgia diagnosis along with M.E., widespread pain is an accompanying symptom. Theories postulated for this is that there is heightened pain sensitivity due to faulty mechanisms in the CNS?? So..... .....why have I had NO pain from the bone surgery I had done over a week ago. I had always been told that the aftermath of bone surgery is quite painful. I have had some 'sensations' at the surgical site like tingling and itching which are more superficial at the tissue level but no bone pain! I have had increasing nausea and my digestive issues have worsened (possibly anaesthetic related) however and a very bad outbreak of 'cold sores' on my lips but not pain! Is it possible that this heightened pain is only to do with neuropathic type pain and not other pain - so in other words we are not wusses? Thoughts anyone?
