lots of my body parts crack too! there was a post on here a few days ago about this so no youre not alone - nothing normal about FM!! hope its easier tomoz xx


I have lots of trouble with both of my wrists as part of my fibro symptoms, even holding a pen and writing for a short period makes them so sore. I find it helps to hold them in hot water for a few minutes and this seems to soothe them. That is along with pain killers and pain relieving gel. x


lolim stubborn about pain killers wont take them unless im dying !sometimes i feel as though my wrists will fall off if not bandaged up yes i know it sounds stupid but dont know how else to explain it


i know what you mean theres days i wish to god they chop my damn wrists off x


for the pain i have been using tiger balm its a little better but i have found heat to be most effective i really cant wait to get in bed with elctric blanket x


i also have very painful wrist but i also have joint hyper mobility, i just use wrist supports and ibuleve gel as that helps a bit, all of my joints crack and give me load of pain as well as the fibro

Hope your blood tests come back ok

Take care

hope your blood tests are ok




My wrists started about a month ago, I thought I'd broken my right wrist the pain was so severe, it's now a constant dull ache unless I try to use it then it sends a searing pain !!! Went to dr yesterday as my knees are also agony- her response ... Age/wear and tear/ Fibro... Nothing she can do except she said try glucosamine & chrondroitin, so I am going to !!!

Ask your doc to refer you to occupational therapy - I am lucky in that I have access to a rheumatology occupational therapist. She has given me a wrist splint with thumb restraint to wear. It helps if i wear this even if it's just for a couple of hours a day. After a while it can get a bit hot and heavy. I had carpal tunnel release surgery about 18 months ago.
