Yes! pain the in fingers. As a matter of fact, I was diagnosed, about 26 years ago as having tendonitis of my wrist, because it hurt so much, and the pain would radiate to my hands, (fingers). I have always had trouble carrying my babies, picking them up, and sometimes things just drop out of my hands. It's only gotten worse. hand/wrist braces don't help.
I suspected maybe it was this new thing called carpal tunnel (sp?) syndrome. I was tested for it, but no nerve compression. The only thing I didn't have three years ago or so was the tingling and numbness in the hands/fingers, which I now have.
My fingers have always hurt. I do not have arthritis, nor tendonitis, nor carpal tunnel. (I heard that the test is not conclusive. They did the test in where they instert needles into my shoulder and arms and send a small electrical charge -- long-long-LONG needles). I sometimes can't make my fingers do what I want them to do...been that way now for the past 5 years or so.
This fibermyalgia problem has always revovled around my hands. And it is only this past month or two that my feet/legs/hips are starting to hurt. When I could run, one of my feet would ache so badly at about the 2 mile mark, I could barely make it home, but I ran anyhow. I would be limping - it seemed a toe or two was hurting so badly causing that pain.
I've really been very angry at my diagnosis, (about 4 years ago.) I've lived in pain so many years. From the fingers and hands, including the wrist, it went up my arm, to my shoulder, (about 10 or 11 years ago), and then about 4 or 5 years into my neck.
I read about RSI, which is what I feel I have. Repeatative Stess Injury. I mean, why else would the pain start at my hands, and work it's way up over the years?
I have a very high tolerance to pain, as doctors have found out over the years: giving birth, broken teeth/fillings and dental work, and other injuries. But, the chronic pain drains me, and because of my high pain tolerance I didn't take pain meds for years. Finally the doctors argued with me that it is a quality of life issue, and that pain meds for the small modest pains helps control the bigger pains. It was true...to a point.
Anyhow, yes for the fingers -- man they hurt! I've never mentioned my feet and toes to the doc that diagnosed me with fibermyalgia, but when I was running, my heel hurt so badly for so many months that I had to have it x-rayed only to find out nothing was wrong with it, so I'm attributing that to fibro too.
Hope this helps.
