Swelling and Cramping
I know I haven't been on for a while and I've got an excuse... I know excuses are like armpits everyone has them.
For the last couple of weeks my hands have been cramping to the point where my fingers are twisted. They not only been cramping they have been swelling and turning bright red. But the cramping, swelling and redness have almost become a daily acurance. When it first started out it was just when I was over working my self. Now it seems all I have to do is relax and they start to become painfully twisted swell and become read on the palms and down my forarms. Either my father or my husband have to rub really hard on my forarm to uncalsp my cramping and to have the redness to go down enough where I can use my hands again.
My feet are starting to show the same sighns. My toes on my right foot last night became so twisted with cramping it looked like the were trying to retreat up my leg. The swelling was from the back of the right side of my ankel to the front of my big toe and my foot was going red on the bottom. My husband did the same thing that he does to my hands to release them from their excruciating form. He rubbed it until the cramping in my foot and my toes subsided enough where I could walk around.
Has this happend to anyone else? Does anyone know what it could be? Could it happen that I went from Lyrica to Gabapenten for my Fibro? Or could it be the other med changes?
I would like to go to the doctor with an idea of what it might be because I don't want to be told I don't know lets do some MORE useless test and give you some more pills to add to the umptenth million you're already taking. If anyone has been through this or has some idea so I can go with a plan Friday I would apreciate it...
