I have been recently diagnosed with fibro and adding insult to injury, my rheumatologist said he sees signs of RA, too. My mother was diagnosed with RA several years ago, so I am somewhat familiar with it, but not so much with fibro. I am starting out with Neurontin and meloxicam. I also take a narcotic pain med as needed. My question is does anyone have swelling with fibro? My ankles have started swelling (looks like golf balls beside my ankle bone). Fibro symptom or something else? My fingers have swelled for years but this is a first for my ankles. I need to stay on top of this thing. I'm 37 years old with 2 children. I don't want either disease to do a sneak attack and bring me down.
Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can give!
