    Every time I try to do some walking my knees swell and they hurt so bad.
    My pain Doc say it good but I can only walk about 3 blocks and back.He said the swelling is not from the fibro.
    Do any of you have this problem ?

    Hi Angel,

    Oh yes the swelling can often be the fibro! Both my hands and whole legs get into this act. Hubby had to cut off my very expensive rings because the fingers were a lovery... not...shade of blue. I don't even wear rings anymore at all because I never know when the extremities will balloon like heck. I take it you're doctor doesn't have any of the possible dd we deal with on a normal basis.

    You could have either a Bakers Cyst or torn miniscus or arthritis all of these cause swelling and guess what I have all three!!!

    Ice/heat helps and menthol spray or rub prior to going out.

    Love Anne
