Hi all I have had Fibro since 2007 and have been able to cope on and off since being ill health retired in april 2010. We moved house December and 2nd day in I was taken to hospital A&E as I had chronic swollen feet and legs, temperature, shivers, bloodspressure was 170/160 and ECG showed my heart was racing, they was so busy as I would have had to sit there until morning before I saw the consultant so said I would discharge myself, I needed a bed pain meds, not a chair in a waiting room, saw a sister who discharged me saying as I had Fibro the strain of moving had brought on Polymylagia and caused the swelling, I was to take Dicofenac and elevate my legs. A week later i saw my new GP and had blood tests results were stage 3 kidney disease and that was causing all the symtoms, I was put on medication and 3 weeeks later feeling better, legs normal again, so yet again you mention Fibro and they assume its linked.I also have abdominal atrophy caused by two major operations and it is so painful and limits what I can do, has anyone else suffered with this.
