    Hi everyone. I am thrilled to have found this site. I have been doing alot of research on Fibro and I am just wondering if I may have something else as well.
    My doctors have tested me for just about everything. Nothing wrong with me. So, I have drawn my own conclusion. I have Fibro. I have to have. I have every symptom and then some.
    I don't read much in the symptom list about ankle pain or pain in the hands, feet, fingers.
    I have extreme pain there redness,and swelling.
    Bone scan, blood test, etc... show no signs of any athritis
    or any reason this should be going on.
    I am just wondering if ya'll have extreme join pain.
    Thanks for you help

    I've just started with these sympoms but don't have the redness. The other night it felt like my feet were in a vise. I see my doc on the 9th and will get the opinion then. I don't have any answers for you. I feel like my pain is probably not originating in the joints themselves, but in the tendons and ligaments surrounding. I have already been having hip and shoulder pains so I guess things are just progressing. Sorry my reply doesn't give much of an answer.

    Hi Billiegail
    I have M.E and the symptoms are allmost the same as FM and my ankles swell up and go red and they look bruised as well some times i try to put my feet up on a stool while watching television or just relaxing as this helps to bring the swelling down some times i put them on a cushion as well as they say your feet should be higher than your hips for swelling to go down
    hope this helps a bit love Loopyloo xx

    Thanks everyone. Please let me know what the doctor says about everything.
    I am not sure what ME is, so could you reply and let me know. Thanks
