    Does anyone have swollen feet and legs?

    If I sit too long at the computer, or at a chair doing a jigsaw puzzle.

    Then it's head for the bed, so I can get my feet and legs level with the rest of my body.

    Is it maybe poor circulation, or another part of FM?

    My ankles have started to swell.

    Do you have high blood pressure?
    Try using a footstool or sit on a cushion.
    Altho Im finding with this fibro I cant sit very long.

    Info says no longer than 10 20 mins then break and move around.

    Hope this helps

    That could be a medication side effect. You may want to ask your doctor.

    If I am on the computer my hands swell and go numb. Especially my right hand because I am right handed. I am having a nerve test done on the 17th.

    My feet was med and vitamin related. the first time my feet and legs swelled up like balloons, I gained 10 lbs of fluid in 1 week, was because of either tizanadine or wellbutrin. Doc chg those to meds and the swelling went away. Last week I started taking vit.D and calcium magnesium zinc tablet. My legs swelled up again. I stopped taking them and the swelling went down.

    The swelling in the feet has never completely gone but there has been a drastic difference. So I am going to talk to doc. It is like my body can not process certain things.
