I am new to FM and I am trying to figure out what is due to FM and what is other things.

Does anyone have problems with swelling in their hands and feet?

My hands and feet seem to swell all the time.

Thanks that helped a lot. Trying to figure out what might be part of FM and what is just normal everyday things is so difficult!

I swear new things happen every day

That they do, Dawn. *chuckle*

Be sure to discuss the swelling with your doctor. We should never assume that each and every symptom, especially new ones, are due to FM without getting it checked out.
