Stabbing ear pain anyone?

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've had a pretty hectic weekend trying to find a new home and today I'm paying the price. Awful hand and feet pain, feet and ankles are swollen and I'm exhausted. I've also had stabbing pain in my right ear, is this a fibro thing? I'm thinking it is and down to nerves in the area as I do get awful face and jaw pain.

      Hi there, I know I've overdone it, I'm a typical mum, used to putting everyone else first! My ankles and feet are swollen yes. I do get swelling in my hands too, have been checked for RA recently but bloods were fine, so GP not looking into this any further. The joint pain apparently is to do with the ligaments in my hands and feet? Only diagnosed a fortnight ago so still reading loads and learning really. I will have a look for this oxylift though, it's definitely worth a bash, Thankyou for your reply, it's appreciated x

      Hi again, yep I overdo it a fair bit. I try to listen to my body most of the time but life takes over and whammy it turns around and boots me up the backside. My own fault really, going to have to pay more attention!

    Fibro things are puzzling and we don't know all that goes on with the basket of stuff gone wrong in our bodies....I believe this is so true.  So many have other issues too, so it's all mixed up in our bodies....

    For general good health, I can't say enough about grape seed extract, powerful antioxidant.....sure does work to reduce get rid of edema.....honestly.

I'll get better at this as I go along, I suppose it's a constant learning curve.

      Hi Andrea, that's really interesting. In April months before my diagnosis I had a really bad time with swollen glands and my throat did feel swollen, tight swallowing, I had a tremor and other neuro symptoms so was sent to a Neurologist, he thought I had MS til my MRIs, evoked potentials and lumbar puncture all came back clear. It comes back now and again, almost as if I'm going to have a really cold with a sore throat buit never comes. Looks like another symptom I can chalk up to the fibromyalgia. Thanks for your reply, it's appreciated.

      More rest required I think. Chance would be a fine thing, just had 3 weeks of insomnia, have slept through last 2 nights, prob the meds. In bed now, hoping the esr pain doesn't wake me up, oh the joys!
