So a few days ago, while sitting at my computer, I got this sudden wave of something ICE COLD over the skin on my back. Almost like if you were wet and someone pointed a fan on you. I've gotten this feeling before and just called it the chills. The problem is that it kept happening over and over for about an hour straight before I got up thinking "What the heck is going on!?" -- It's been off and on for the last few days now. Some days worse than others, but pretty much continuous whether it's once or twice a day, or nonstop for hours at a time. I'm also feeling it lightly on my thighs.
Has anyone ever had this happen?
About a year ago I had a major open-abdominal surgery to remove a large ovarian cyst. The first surgery did not go well, and only about a day later I was rushed back into to surgery to be reopened the same way because I was bleeding internally. They fixed the problem (phew!) but immediately after surgery (literally, while I was still in the hospital) the top part of my left thigh was totally numb and tingly, and still is today, though I've learned to tune it out.
My point is, after surgery, it just seems like I keep having more and more nerve related issues. Twitching, buzzing in my lower half and feet, and now ice cold waves on my back and thighs.
I've talked to my doctor about it and he's expression the possibility of nerve damage during surgery, or maybe a compressed nerve somewhere. He's diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia after my CT Scans, Brain MRI, every heart related test in the book, and several blood tests (Thyroid, Lupus, etc) all came back normal.
I realize I may need to see a Neurologist, but right now my medical insurance isn't 100%, so I'm just looking for some ideas of what this could possibly be? Any ideas?
