Hi all, I asked my Doctor about the large lumps/ swellings I get during a flare up and he said that you only get them if you have severe fibromyalgia.
I get them everywhere, but not usually more than 3 places as once. I had a very large one at the base of my spine last year and couldn't walk for 6 weeks, the pain was very bad.
Under my feet are terrible too and in my neck and arms. The cramping pains are agony.
Still waiting to get to pain assessment centre.
I tend to get lumps behind my ears when I'm run down - have had a couple of persistent ones behind my left ear for months now. The last routine blood test I had done showed a high white blood cell count which usually means there's an infection.
