I am so genuinely sorry to read this and I sincerely hope that you can find some resolution to this issue. It is not something that I personally experience as I have Lymphedema whereby my legs, ankles and feet actually swell with fluid.

I would discuss this with your GP if this gets any worse or persist just to ascertain it is Fibro and not a different medical condition. I want to genuinely wish you all the best of luck.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Hi GothBird

I know exactly what you are talking about. I get exactly the same feeling in my left arm. I have asked about it, but I just get a blank look and the doctor/consultant will focus on something they know about ! It's been happening to me for about 2 years. I have to completely stop using it for a bit until it calms down.
