    Hi all,

    I have been diagnosed with FM since all labs come out normal, then I went into remission for about 10 mths got pregnant now I am in a horrible flare. Now this time around I get swelling in fingers, wrists, ankels and knees, never had that before. Also my feet feel like they are on fire. I also am getting nodules on my fingers, both middle fingers, funny when I show my husband and have to flip him my fiddle finger, lol.

    I guess back to the doctor and see what he says, just wondering about anybody else.

    Thanks, GIN

    I was very similar to that during my last (twin) pregnancy. I didn't know I had FM back then but the pain was unrelenting - I could hardly turn over in bed or walk. I swelled too, but no nodules. I would check that out. I did go up almost two shoe sizes and couldn't wear any rings. (Actually, even now my rings can make my hands ache, hmmm.)

    I've heard others say that pregnancy relieved a lot of their symptoms but that wasn't the case for me at all.

    Wish you felt better.
