Is this a symptom of fibro

I been having terrible pain in my arms. The muscles ache so bad and have like sharp pains in them. I cannot hardly lift a glass with my left arm, feels like the muscles are in tight knots. I also have rls and of a night the muscles in the calf of my legs just go into knots. I can't even lay in the bed. The muscles just bulge out. I try massaging them and even sometimes have spasms in bottom of feet. Is this all related to fibro? Please give me some advice to what is going on.

Re: Is this a symptom of fibro

I relate everything to fibro.eye problems, leg spasms, rls, gastro problems, weight gain, dryness, pain in hands , thumb pain everything. Now I think I have shingles. Has anyone else had this?

Re: Is this a symptom of fibro

Welcome
Fibro sucks, just have to learn how to control it. Please tell your doctor what problems you are having so they can help... I get spasms but think they are pretty mild, just annoying.

Ataylo- if you think you have Shingles, please see your doctor. I have noticed it seems to be pretty common right now... Although fibro has many symptoms & things that go hand in hand, it's not always fibro. Fibro is jut easy to blaim much of the time...

Re: Is this a symptom of fibro

welcome...yes i get sharp shooting stabbing pain, massage is the only thing thats helps..and i mean massage deep down it hurts like crazy and can leave bruises but thats at least what i need to be able to move my arm, shoulder again...try massaging your lower back like waaaay down into the tail bone area..you'll feel the tingling pain down into your legs...at least for me when i started massaging that area my RLS stops but when the painful tingling numbness starts up i know those muscle are tight again.

hugs Monalisa....
