    I am curious, do any of you experience both with fibro? I know the joint pain is part of the package but lately, I have been having swelling with the joint pain and itching all over my body. It is driving me crazy! I have an appt. with a new rheumy in a couple of weeks but it I thought I would ask about this here.

    Thanks for any replies,

    My doc gave me an RX for Visteril, and it works very well for me! Also has a bit of something to help with anxiety too.

    I have tons of swelling, joint pain, and itch all the time. Certain places like the middle of my back itches 24/7, a circle in the middle of my foot, and the palms of my hands. Drives me nuts! LOL.

    Yes, I have itching in addition to joint pain. I understand that the mast cells deep in our skin tissue are affected by our condition.

    I definitely have both the pain and itching. Sometimes I itch so much that it bleeds. I try to be careful. The other morning I woke up and saw that my arm had been bleeding. I guess I was itching in my sleep.

    I was getting worried. I guess I will bring it up at my next appointment.
