painful chills & pressure pain
Oh my gosh, I have been searching for an answer too, as I had spine surgery 5 weeks ago & if I even put my hands under cold water my body goes into such shocking pain that I can't stand it. I can't sleep at night because the pressure on my arms, hips & legs hurt so bad that it it is more powerful than the narcotics & the ambien that I am taking. I know all about fibromyalgia, but do't think the painful chills are due to that. If anyone can help please pm me.

Hello, I suffer from the same thing, I don't know what it is but I think it is partly mood related as when I feel anxious that is when I 'freeze' and then when I feel happier more loving thoughts, I heat up.
However physical and emotional are all related so it is necessary to treat it as a physical symptom.
I find acupuncture quite helpful, and also listening to bionic waves specially designed for backache, if you search youtube you can find some great bionic frequency videos which really help to heat up the system.
I was sceptical but could not deny how well it worked when I tried it and it helped to relieve the anxiety as well.
There are also heat patches which you can get from a pharmacy, try those they are good, but quite expensive unfortunately.
You can also approach the condition from an ayurvedic perspective and eat foods which have a warmer energy, lots of ginger, chilli, cinnamon, root vegetables and drink ayurvedic tea designed to heat up your system, with ingredients like chilli and ginger in them. For more information, follow this link.
I think Bikram Yoga might help too.
You could get a heat lamp and/or an electric blanket, also making sure you run around more and keep moving is very important for keeping up your body temperature.
deep heat cream, devils claw, tiger balm....
It is something that you have to constantly work on and be conscious of but I hope you get the hang of it!
I haven't tried this yet but I was thinking of it.
Good luck
