Is it normal for people with Fibromyalgia and/or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to have dulled sensation in the genital area?
Not only is my partner having a difficult time stimulating me, but I try also and it is almost impossible to climax, actually, it is most of the time impossible to have a climax. It was not always like this. I have been sick for 7 years. I also have decreased sensations in other parts of my body, like the side of my face, my nose, and sometimes my right arm. I am finding this a difficult topic to talk to my doctor about.
I appreciate any direction or help you can give me here.
I have heard of these decreased sensations in the genital areas by both men and women suffering from CFS and/or FMS. It sounds like a good neurological work up is in order for you. I would also check to see if you are on any medications which may have the neurological side effects you speak of. Do not be embarrassed to bring this up to your doctor. It is important that he/she knows that you are having decreased sensation in any parts of your body.
Please let me know what your doctor says.
