Do any of you experience inflammation with your fibro? If so, is it during a flare-up?
My sed rate, c-reactive protein, and a recent d-Diner test done all show inflammation.
I saw my rheumy last Friday, and he doesn't think I have any arthritis, with the exception of my DDD in my back, which if I understand right, is osteoarthritis.
Anyway, he stated that some of his fibro patients had in fact reported inflammation.
Mine is in my ankles, my knees, my wrists, the back of my hands, my elbows, and in the clavical region of my neck.
He did a physical exam and said that the clavical swelling was not due to lymph node enlargement, however he did find an enlarged node under my left arm.
Any thoughts you might have would be appreciated!
