Tightness in arms & Legs

Postby swampiesue » Fri Jun 25, 2010 8:10 am

Hi Does anyone else have funny turns as though all the muscles in their arms and legs are being squeezed tight... a bit like when you have a blood pressure cuff blown upon your arms. I get this especially after any exertion... I ie.. pulling up a few sticks of Rhubarb.. this happens then I go all weak,wobbly, and feel faint and have to sit down. I also get it in my arm when I have been holding the phone for any period of time... This has been happening to me a lot. :(

Me too but as we always say if this is something new please get it checked out by your GP because nothing should routinely be put down to fibro :hugs: :hugs:

Thanks for your replies, I have had these symptoms for some time now, mentioned it to my GP who thought it probably was due to fibro, but it is interesting to see others get the same.

It could be myofascial restrictions - these are a common issue amongst people with Fibro. Specialised massage and stretching can really help, and muscle relaxants and injections help some people.
I run FibroAction, a small national charity raising awareness of Fibromyalgia Syndrome. I am not a qualified healthcare professional. If you would like medical references for any facts quoted, just PM me.
