I've had Fibromyalgia for as many as eight years now and I have a new symptom. My hands are killing me! It hurts to touch things. Driving is painful! Holding the banister to go up the stairs hurts. Anything I do with my hands that require that I put any pressure on them kills me! What's with this? I never had this before. My pain was concentrated in my arms, shoulders and back before. It's still there, but my hands are the worst now! This morning I woke up and my hands were screaming with burning pain. After I woke up I stretched them and the burning subsided, but they're still extremely painful. Does anyone else have this? Can anyone offer any suggestions to help with the pain? Pain medicine hardly touches it. I mentioned this to my doctor at my last appointment, and he said that my muscles were irritated from my last flare. Well that was three months ago and my hands haven't recuperated. I'm worried I might have something else going on here. No inflammation or redness and my rhumetiod test was negative over a year ago. Do you really think this could just be Fibromyalgia? And if so, I HATE IT! I am an accountant and work with my hands all day.
