Does anyone experience the skin on the fingers wrinkling? I have had this for about a week now and i dont think it is water related. There are also a few patches of dry skin on some of my fingers and I have tightness but no swelling and they dont hurt. Just wondering if it is one of the many symptoms of Fibro.

The meds I take are Gabapentin, flexeril, tramadol, and celexa....maybe my wrinkling is from them?

Gentle Hugs!

I have autoimmune eczema on three of my fingers and two of my toes. I've had it longer than I've had fibro. But it causes peeling more than wrinkling.

Sounds like it could be a type of exema. Have you showed it to the doctor? Does it itch any? I would still keep the fluids in you. Try some unscented hand cream. That might help. You might not think it is water related, but when your skin is drying out, it doesn't hurt to hydrate. Have you switched dish detergents recently? I use polmolive, it is easy on the hands. Dawn is a good detergent, but you need gloves as it is a little harsher. Unless you are lucky enough to have a dishwasher. Never thought of that. lol... Fibro fog and assuming everybodyis as poor as I am. hahaha...

My sides and tops of my fingers do peel and i have had a little spot on one finger that itches like mad. I havent changed my dishwashing liquid in years lol..the undersides of my finger are wrinkled as if they were in water for a long time. I will see the doctor the first week of august and will discuss it with her. .....and oh....love that fibro fog! thanks for your responses!
