Painful bumps on the legs after childbirth. Hormonal or fibromyalgia?

I am getting goosebumps on my legs that are quite painful. Almost like a million pins getting stuck into my legs, mostly on the upper portion (thigh). I haven t shaved them recently so that can t be it. I ve recently had a baby so I m thinking it could be something hormonal? I ve also read this could have something to do with adrenal fatigue or fibromyalgia???

If you have had a normal vaginal delivery, then it is possible that you might have suffered trauma to some of your nerves. The pain needs to be present for more than 3 months to suspect fibromyalgia. Adrenal fatigue is also unlikely to cause this. Hormonal changes also do not usually cause this. It will help if you get yourself examined by a doctor so that the nature and extent of the pain can be assessed and conclusions drawn.

You can take some painkillers to see if it helps.
