I went to see my doctor yesterday for my physical and I told her about it. I don't know why some doctors feel the need to touch the areas that you tell them it hurts, I almost kicked the stew out of her. She sent me to have some x-rays of my right foot.

Hi Kenyatta,
Yes I have had flares in my ankles and feet. My feet swell up and feel real puffy.My Doctor also told me it could be gout but most likely it is from the fibrmyalgia.

Kind of like an injury treatment.
I hope this helps you some.

@A MyFibroTeam Member I get numbness, tingling in my hands and feet. During winter I was burning and freezing cold (both). Certain areas felt like I was on fire and others ached like I had been frostbitten (indoors in Florida). I am interested in what your take is on this.

Fibro is so insane. I'm sorry my friend.
Without my pain pills it always starts as a burning in my feet and the backs of my legs and moves up and over my body.
God bless always.

@A MyFibroTeam Member I have been to see a cardiologist bc of my fast beating heart rate. He never mentioned anything about congestive heart. When I saw him, my ankles were not swollen either.
