I get severe swelling in my calves in front and back, also in my arms on muscle areas by the elbow as well as hands etc.
The swelling is "not" in the joints, just the muscle areas and i can't figure out what to have the doctors look for next.

I get swelling in my calves,hands and feet. And sometime I swear my face looks swollen. I try to drink a lot of water, doesn't really seem to change things that much.

I have, at times, had major swelling in my ankles since getting fibro. Also my fingers once in a while. Talk to your doctor...let us know what you find out. How long has this been going on for you?

Wow, I have had some crazy swelling going on with my calves these last few days. I have also been getting all kinds of lumps in my calves and on my shin bones as well. They started out on my shins and have since progressed. Then the swelling started, I don't know if it's all related or not. My doc is on vacation and I cannot see her until the 6th so in the meantime I guess I just deal with it and hope my legs don't explode..lol Please keep us posted and I hope you start feeling better soon. Take care.

I have problems with my left leg swelling up at times. It is not acting up right now but I think it might be a winter thing for me. Hope yours goes away soon.

One day I got up and walked after months of bad fatigue. My ankles swelled up that day and never went back down. Also have swelling in fingers and below knees. Bloated abdomen. I relate to you not knowing what to have the doctor look at next, seems to be so many things all at once. I have heard drinking more water can help I cant take a prescribed water pill because of low blood pressure. Hugs
