    My neck is stiff and sore always but the back of my head at the base actually swells and hurts. Many times, I have to take off my glasses since the sides swell. Is this FM? I also have RA. Could that be it.

    I am not exactly sure,but I wish I was.I do know RA can cause a restriction of circulation in the areas afflicted.A good osteopathic,chiropractic doc could be of great help to you.Cranial sacral therapists can also help.

    Good luck to you and I hope you get a definative answer from someone on this site with personal experience in this area.

    Take care,

    Hi Violette, I have Fibro, but no swelling. I hope someone else can help with this question.

    Please keep your post 'bumped' up, its almost at the botton of the page.

    If you don't know what a bump is, just write 'bump' in the 'Title' section, and your name is the 'Message' section. I am saying this only because some new people don't know what a 'bump' means. I know that I didn't when I first came here.

    Again, welcome to the board.

    Shalom, Shirl
