Photos of my "lumps."

I had my daughter and I take as many photos of a few of the muscle lumps that I have. I couldn't get them all without stripping all the way down. :o) But maybe by these photos, you can see them and it might help someone else with fibromyalgia. :o) Yes....these lumps are very painful.

OMG you poor thing. I am can see why you have so much trouble sleeping. I can't begin to imagine what that must be like.
I do have a question though, are the lumps on your feet worse after you have been on them walking or standing for a period of time? My feet get to looking like that after I have done a lot of walking/standing on concrete and they hurt like the dickens, to the point where I can't stand to take another step and have to quit and find a place to sit.
Please take care of yourself. I know I don't know you personally but can't stand the thought of someone as nice as you seem to be, being in that kind of pain.
Also, can't imagine anyone would not understand the pain you must be in after looking at those pics.
Thank you for posting them. I'm sure you have helped me.
Blessings to you

Thank you both for understanding. The photos aren't really that good. Alot of the photos that I took didn't show up, so I just deleted them. I guess the lighting wasn't very good. My feet look like that when I first get up in the mornings. I took those photos in the morning. You should see them when I have been on my feet, and have stood on them for awhile. Yes, they do hurt. I tried my best to get the muscle lumps that are on the bottoms of my feet the best I could, but they didn't come out as good as I would have wanted them to. Thats why sometimes I have to walk on the sides of my feet. Then the ones on the sides of my feet will really hurt too! Geesh! So I take turns. :o) I do hope those photos help others with this disease. Yes, it does make it very hard for me to sleep. It also makes it hard for me to sit, and really almost anything, because they are all over. But, I still have to go on with my life. :o) Thank you two so much and God bless you. :o)
