Re: Do you think I have fibro?
Usually fibro involves all or most of the body, but you might have some of the same processes going on. Diagnosing it mostly consists of ruling out other problems.
Muscle tightness in the shoulder area can produce pain, tingling and other strange symptoms in the hands, so you might want to try to relieve that tightness. There are stretches you can do, ask a doctor or another professional to show you. Professional massage can be helpful also. Finally, concentrate on keeping your shoulders down away from the ears when lifting children, and carry them in a backpack or stroller rather than your arms when it's going to be a while.
I've had tight shoulders for years, causing assorted other problems, and the pain can be... memorable is the best word for it.
