    Hello,

    My dr tells me it's the fibro that does that. I have my hands and my ankels that swell all the time. Even my shoulders and my collar bones(not the bone but the area) swell up often.



    take care,

    M

    My fingers, hands, and right above my wrist are swollen too, also my feet. I am not sure if it is a fibro thing, but possibly. As I type it is painful, if I exend my fingers they are sore, my feet too. I am trying to drink as much water as I can, and watch salt, but I have not seen much of a change. The pain in my hands and feet started last October, and has been here every since. Is there anything else we can do?

    Kass

    Re: Is swelling a fibro thing?

    Thank you so much for that x Yes l understood what you said. I had aload of blood work done on Friday as lve been feeling really bad lately inc. feeling like lm goign to pass out and strange pains I go back to the doc middle of the week so will see if l learn anything new then. Ive also requested they test my ft3 thanks to a post l found on the fibro board as l have no thyroid now and was told l didnt need ft3 done now.... but that was wrong info so hopefully l might get some answers at last mid week. Like the other poster my hands and wrist area have been bad too lately if l try and wave my hands it feels like someone has bent back my wrists and my ankles ahve been a bit sore too and upper back muscles... Oh the list is endless lol sorry to rant! The anxiety is pretty bad too right now l know its from feeling ill, yesterday l sat in bat with tears pouring down my face l was so sore and fed up! Thanks again for the replies xx Ps lve also felt really itchy lately too?

    Hi and thanks Goldenwings x l really really feel for everyone who finds themselves here... you feel so helpless at times and its reassring to find your not alone sadly. I see your in the UK too I think l could do with something mild for the anxiety... ive held off asking so far but l know its getting worse today l had to go to the post office and l could feel myself getting fired up when l was outdoors light headed breathfulness etc you know the usual anxiety attack symptoms... will see what happens mid week might ask for something mild and see how things go. I know if felt ok l wouldnt be as anxious if that makes sense? Thanks again for your kind words look after yourself too xx
