no way, that's is exactly how the cramps started...in my hands. then moved to my legs and feet.
my fingers cramped so bad they coiled by themselves after I pulled them back straight.
Thank you for the response. I have not been diagnosed officially with fibromyalgia. Maybe I need to read the posts in this subject. What happens when you are in a fibromyalgia flare? I assumed the cramping was just another part of getting older. Or that my potassium was low. Never associated it with fibromyalgia. my old doctor did diagnose me with fibromyalgia. He did this tenderness check thing, by pushing on certain parts of my body. But he died, and most of my medical records lost. and the doctor who took his patients seem not to trust his diagnoses. Could mention it to my rheumatolotist. I am kind of intimidated by doctors too, and can't remember what to say.
I will look at these other posts in this subject.
