Pain always in the same place?
1 Replies
Myriam - June 8

Hello, I wanted to know if the pain for FMS always hit at the same place? I feel horrible pain in my wrists, elbows and shoulders. In the wrists and the hands, the pain is restrictive, like something is stopping my movement, my thunbs only bend half the way the use too. My shoulders are more like muscle pain, like a a strain. So do my legs. But my hands get me confuse. I tried to sleep with braces around my hands and wrists but the pain was the same if not worse the next day. I had Carpal tunnel on the right side and got surgery, but it is not the same pain at all. This one is in the bones. I did tests for RA and I dont have it. anyone knows if it is the FMS causing me this?
Thanks!

Hello Myriam,

The interesting thing about FMS pain is that it tends to move from place to place in our bodies. My FMS has a few "favorite spots" and moves from favorite spot to favorite spot. Sometimes the pain settles someplace like my left shoulder blade or neck. In the beginning, my pain was always in my left shoulder blade/left neck. That pain would worsen throughout the day till I had headaches and numbness/tingling in my left arm.

Now I have burning pains in both arms, hands, fingers with stiffness. At it's worst, my arms/hands feel hard to move, as tho someone has turned up the gravity.

As for sleeping w/braces on your hands, I don't recommend doing it unless a physician has prescribed sleeping w/braces. That could cut off blood flow and/or compress nerves, which will make you feel worse.

I'm not a doctor and I'm NOT diagnosing anything. I'm just saying, don't do it unless your physician has recommended it.
