    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    oldie member, new name humblep to humblepi, Are swelling of feet common with fibro?
    humblepi posted:
    I have a lot of feet and ankle swelling. Just wondering if it is common with fibro. I forgot to ask MY DOCTOR. Is it just me?
    annette030 responded:
    What I have read is that visible swelling is not a symptom of FMS. We feel like we have swelling, but when someone looks, it does not look swollen.

    If you have a lot of swelling, show it to your doctor!

    Take care, Annette
    humblepi replied to annette030's response:
    OKAY! thanks
