Hello Michelle,
I too have a horrible time with my Arms and Fingers. My Arms are always numb and cold as well. I have very bad tendonitis in my fingers. I went to the Neurologist and he performed a nerve conduction study and an emg. They both proved that I did not have any dysfunction in my nerve or muscles. My Grandmother also has Fibro and she suffers the same pain in her arm as well. I hope that you fell better soon. Are you taking any medication?

I have a bad time with my arms, shoulders, elbows. I also have RA but I feel like nerves in my elbows are pinched and I'm constantly stretching my arms all different ways to get
relief. I recently started using limes in my water
to help and it seems to have some anti-inflammatory effects. I can hardly do any arm
weights at the gym w/out being in excrutiating pain for several days after.
Try stretching, have a chiro adjust your elbows and try some lime in your water. Drink lots of water.

Michelle, I have the same problem with my arms and hands. My dr says my neck pain is going down into my arms, shoulders etc so I know how you feel. Hope you get the right meds to help with the pain.

I have huge problems of being cold sometimes I sit in front of two heaters. My hands are always cold I have numbness and pain in my arms and fingers (doctors said for years it was due to my arthritis)My new doctor a year ago said I have fibro as well. .Have you herd of lynphdrainage (not sure of spelling)there has been alot of recent reserach in to this. I have tried this for the first time a few weeks ago and I think its helpfull time will tell. Its worth a try ask your doctor about it.

some people told me that they thought i may have poor circulaion but the color doesnt change. my body doesnt get cold just the feel of the arms even if I wrap them in a blanket.Its weard.It kills me to even take this lap top out of the backpack my arms dont like any weight . I think I will try the Lime in my water and hope the doctors can make my arms more comfortable with meds. I really dont know what else to do.
