    Hi everyone,

    I am having a really bad time right now. I have been in a severe flare for a while now...different than some that I have experienced in the past.

    I have had Fibro and suspected Lupus for quite some time now.
    I am going to make an appointment with the Reumy tomorrow and see what's up. I so see signs of RA, slight deformation in my toes and fingers but right now, I have so much swelling and stiffness in my hands, fingers and feet and ankle and add , I guess. sciatica from the buttocks all the way th the back of the ankle. I am not on any narcotics or painkiller scripts.

    I worry because Fibro is NOT supposed to induce swelling. I have suffered with severe swelling from day one...to the point where I can not close my hand completely to make a fist without the ends of my finger tips starting to bleed from the pressure.

    Does anyone have any idea what may be going on or had similar experiences.
