    Fibro/RUQ pain, Joint swelling.

    One year ago I started having gastro issues. All checked out good after colonoscopy/Endoscopy bunch of blood work. Then Memorial day weekend I started having weird pain down both sides and under arms and I thought it was lymph nodes but never felt anything. About the same time I started having RUQ pain/fullness. I went back to gastro for Hida/U.S. and all came back fine. Pain continued in weird places out of nowhere and went to primary and Rhumy with Fibro diagnoses after doing the normal tests to rule out Lupus/RA/Sedj and such. About a month after Fibro diagnosis the pain went to the joints. Hands are the daily challenge with swelling at a couple knuckles. I'm just waiting to give it time to see what else develops before chasing arthritis stuff.

    Anyway I'm just wondering from some long term Fibro/RUQ people if the RUQ pain/fullness just keeps on paining or is masking something down the road?

    I am glad to see Fibros with RUQ pain....that was driving me nuts thinking we needed to look at the gastro stuff more!

    Thank You

    You may need to increase muscle tone, too. Do you exercise regularly?

    Do you get enough clacium and magnesium? deficiency can cause the discomfort you experience.
