Type 2 diabetic. Having pain in hip. Diagnosed as fibromyalgia. Is it related to diabetes?

Hi, my fiance is having very painful to the touch in his hip and lower back area. He says its not the muscles its the skin. It started in just a small area now it has spread around to his hip and now his other hip is also starting to hurt. He says its very painful to the touch. Now He has looked it up and what he found of course was fibromyalgia , now I have that and it doesn t seem to me that that s it. He also has Diabetes , type 2, could this be a symptom from that??

Diabetologist 's  Response
yes,in diabetes such symptoms may be present
such pains may occur due to neuropathy
the range of pains in diabetes may vary from mild prolonged pain ,intermittent stabbing sharp pain to almost no pain
this pain may be worsening at night mostly
this may or may not be associated with muscle weakness leading to difficulty in walking too
was the diagnosis called fibromyalgia done by a doctor?
if so it could be true,because he confirms it by physical examination generally
but if you are still in doubt meet a doctor once again
get blood glucose levels tested
other reasons for such pains are inflammation in the bursa at hip joint
you can consult a neurologist to sort this problem
certain medications also cause pain
if so please mention it to your doctor and take his help
hope i answered your query
feel free to contact me for further queries
