Swelling Of Legs? Can This Be Fibro?

Swelling Of Legs? Can This Be Fibro?

I have been experiencing swelling in my legs as well as knots/sore spots in legs and arms. Doctors currently can't figure out a cause and i am wondering if it is Fibro related? Anyone else have these symptoms or could it be another health issue? Thanks for any advice.

Hi Lora, I get the same, every day leg swelling and I randomly have lumps, more so in the armpit area, very sore to touch. I asked my doctor and as far as she could tell it is lymph nodes

I have the same problem and my Pain Management Dr. said that Fibro could be one of the reasons behind it.

On your first posting it sounds like Lymphedema in the legs and arms it has collected to much lymph fluid.

The swelling on the leg is it like inflammation? The description in the second sounds like inflammation does your legs feel completely heavy? Does your legs have pain but it isn't like fibromyalgia pain at all?

I have few knots that are there all the time and others that come and go. Some of the knots are sore and others aren't. I have also noticed that they pop up very randomly. The swelling in my legs seem to be different though. I have to wear compression socks everyday otherwise my circulation and muscles are affected and the doctor said it isn't water weight but they can't figure out what is causing it. By the end of the day my legs look like someone elses and I have wearing a fat suit.
