Avatar n tn I am a woman in my mid 30's. I woke up this morning with sever wrist pain. I also have some numbness in my finger tips and my hand is very very weak. I had noticed over the last couple of weeks that I would have sporatic pain in my wirsts but I just brushed it off. I researched it a little on-line and I came up with the same answer... thyroid. Both of my sisters suffer from thyroid problems so I thought that it could be that.
Avatar f tn In some cases, the area where a person experiences the pain may not be where the myofascial pain generator is located. This is called referred pain. Fibromyalgia and MPS can be difficult to distinguish from one another. Some practitioners beleive they are the same. Both have "trigger points" meaning an area of extreme tenderness. Neither of these conditions can be diagnosed through lab work but rather by the symptoms they present.

Avatar m tn The hand pain sounds like fibromyalgia. Celiac disease can cause a cascade of autoimmune diseases, so you might want to get tested for that with the blood tests.

Avatar m tn Concerning issues have been underway for 4 weeks. Week #1 - occasional twitchy pinky finger on right hand. Pain in hand, wrist, upper arm. No loss of strength or range.

Tingly and numbness was off and on - seemed to be more at rest and night? Sometimes numb patches upper arm, face, and lips which were short lived.

I, myself don't know if I have 11 trigger points, therefore I have not been officially diagnosed. But I've suffered with the pain for a long time and now I'm so much better. I suggest you see a Rheumatologist. I don't know what kind of doc gave you all those diagnoses. Was it a Rheumatologist?

Avatar m tn I had what I believed was Fibromyalgia for at least ten years. Two years ago my pain became increasingly unbearable along horrible flu-like symptoms that would not go away. All of this forced me to the the doctor and eventually led up to the diagnosis of Hashimotos. I was prescribed Synthroid, and during the next year of so, worked my way up to the dose of 225mcg. I never ever felt completely well though, even at that dose.(my lab results were way normal, even slightly on the hyper side).
Avatar n tn This seemed reasonable as I had just began to walk on my treadmill on a consistent basis. The pain went away for awhile and then returned a month or so later.My internist then referred me to a neurologist. He conducted a physical exam, EMG, nerve conduction test and a MRI of the brain and cervical spine. The neurologist told me everything looked normal and to come back in 6 months. Well the burning in my feet came back so I went back to the podiatrist who thought it was plantar faciitis.

The neck and sholders are the most frequent sites. Sometimes firm tender zones can be palpated within the muscle.

152264 tn?1280358257 Is this arthritis? I will get sudden, painful shifts in my right wrist, but the pain goes away after a few seconds as the wrist seems to ease itself back into place. (No visible shifts, just felt internally.) Previously this only happened in one small spot in my hand--at the bony prominence that's about an inch and a half away, in a straight line, from the crease between thumb and forefinger.
