Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia upper arm muscle pain


Avatar n tn I have so much pain in my right upper arm muscle. Is it from my fibromyalgia or my rheumatoid arthritis? What can I do or take to alleviate some of this extreme pain?
Avatar f tn Sometimes a rotator cuff tear will cause upper arm pain like you are describing but not often seen in both upper extremities at the same time. Have it checked out!
Avatar n tn When he tested my arms folded up to the shoulder and ask me to exert force on his hand, I could not bear much force with this arm and had pain. The ache/pain keeps me up alot of nights--not that it is so severe but just that dull ache that doesn't allow me to sleep. Sometimes the pain is also in my wrist/elbow or very tip of my shoulder. Am I aproaching the problem correctly?
Avatar f tn My husband does the Acupressure boy does that hurt I do have several hot spots and it does hurt but feels much better when he is done but where my leg and hip meet it always hurts. None of the doctors down here deal with Fibromyalgia. I will check on the mysofascial pain. So did you have the knots and did they go away?
Avatar f tn This week the pain started again in the same place in my upper left arm towards the muscle. It has now started in my shoulder and down to my hand. I was cutting something and holding it with my left hand and felt a sharp pain in my hand up to my arm. my hand is still sore.I am 48 and when i was 11 i had a compound fracture of my left wrist.
237053 tn?1258832026 Cause I haven't had this kind of pain at all until now. The muscle pain has got a bit better in the last day, but my thighs hurt now. I bet I would have the pressure points now though. How is FMS treated? Can it cause weakness too? Thats funny how you said that you had the numbness and tingling at first and then it turned to pain. That is exactly what happend to me!
Avatar f tn Well I don't know if its just muscle pain but I've noticed that when i touch my arm and press a little bit it hurts A LOT. When anyone gives me a back massage I have to ask them to stop after a few secons because it hurts A LOT and after they stop i can still feel their fingers pressing down and its so painful. Wondering if anyoen experiences the same thing.
211940 tn?1267884866 About 1 year ago I began having pain in my right upper arm, between the shoulder and elbow, about mid arm where the biceps brachii muscle or brachialis muscle is. I went to my Primary Physician who said it was a torn brachialis muscle. Since I was working at a 2nd job, I thought it might be job related so I went through the whole Workman's Comp issue. They sent me to 4 doctors who did nothing for me, finally the case was settled and my lawyer got most of the money, but I still have the pain.
Avatar n tn Previously, fibromyalgia was known by other names such as fibrositis, chronic muscle pain syndrome, psychogenic rheumatism and tension myalgias. Signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia can vary, depending on the weather, stress, physical activity or even the time of day. Common signs and symptoms include: *Widespread pain.
Avatar n tn get this diagnosed, but I didn't expect to hear that I have Fibromyalgia and bursitis and tendentious. I can tell you that for the muscle pain in the forearm and upper arm, Biofreeze worked wonders. A few days ago I sent some of the Biofreeze to a friend who has carpel tunnel and some other things and she is trilled at how well it works for her. She said she had cut her pain meds in half. My Dr.
Avatar n tn pain in the upper arm, right in the middle. No shoulder or elbow pain. Left is worse than the right, if I bump my arm or if someone sqeezes my arm, even lightly it causes me more pain. My arms hurt all the the time, I wake up in pain. I am 19 yrs old and have been having this pain since I was about 11 yrs old. I have been to a Rheumatologist, Orthopedic, Muscle specialist and Surgeon. I have had MRIs, Xrays and an EEG...nothing! The pain is always there, please please help.
434278 tn?1324709825 With Lupus you can have muscle pain and all over aching. My pain is primarily in my muscles and feels like my bones. My body lays down extra fascial tissue which creates more pain. I think for fibromyalgia there are certain pain points that must be tender in order to be diagnosed. Otherwise I would think they feel very similar.
Avatar f tn I have been having upper back pain for over 10 years. Pain was mostly in my left side (shoulder, neck, and the shoulder blades). I thought it was my joints because I promise you everytime it rains or even looks as if it is about to rain, my back is stiff as a board and in intense pain. Yet the tests show everything is fine with my joints except a bit of arthritis in the neck. The way the doctors downplay the arthritis makes me think it is of no concern. I was assigned to PT.
Avatar n tn I have been to the hospital 3 times for chest pain, mostly on the left side, left arm pain (sometimes numb, sometimes achey), and sharp pain in my upper back. They ran an EKG, CT scan (they thought i had a blood clot in my lungs), and a chest x-ray. Their results where all basically the same, that it was anxiety or indigestion. Now, I have been on Zoloft for a long time now for anxiety, but when I started having chest pains and numbness in my arm, I began having panic attacks.
Avatar f tn The reason I am writing is because I am going through alot of stuff right now..I was a healthy 31 year old female who drove truck .then became a truck I cant do all started in my I got that checked with xrays..find out that I have disc degeneration in my lumbar..small scoliosis..and arthritis in my L5-S1 spine..and was having neck problems and hot an xray for that which they found a pinched nerve..they gave me an epidural steroid injection..
248167 tn?1220367290 Strained muscles and sprained ligaments are among the most common causes of left upper back pain. This usually occurs when excessive pressure, often from exercising too much, causes the tissue to stretch too much or excessively, causing them to become damaged or torn. Pulled muscular tissue and pinched nerves are other possibilities. Take some over the counter anti-inflammatory painkiller like ibuprofen. Hot compressions, and topical muscle relaxants are also helpful.
Avatar n tn Tingling all the time with upper arm pain. I also have major ringing in ears. I continue to exercise every day. The pain actually subsides when I am active. It's becoming very frustrating and depressing, and I don't know what to do anymore.Any ideas?

Avatar n tn I suffer from muscle weakness and pain -lower back, shoulder, pain in hip joints. Any suggestions? My doctor is at a loss.
Avatar n tn It all started with pain in the upper pectoral region between my arm and my chest. It took 2 years, 3 MRI's, 3 CT scans, 2 X-rays, 30+ times of getting blood work, 4 EKG's and and echo-cardiogram to get diagnosed. I was eventually diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a condition most health care professionals do not know about or have only heard of and do not know the symptoms.

230625 tn?1216764664 I have heard many experience more of a muscle fatigue where their leg or arm feels like it is weighed down with cement. My weakness is more of a "shakiness" or where my legs feel like jello or wobbly. They do not feel "heavy". Actually, there are times where my whole body feels like it's shaking, but it's only visible in my hands. Is there different types of weakness in MS or do you experience different types?
Avatar n tn I started experiencing sharp pain in my left arm, along with severe heaviness in both the chest and arm. Headaches on only the LEFT side, and stiffness in left neck. Sometimes I cannot even hold my head up on the left. I've been to the ER THREE times, once because somebody called an ambulance while I was at work, thinking I was having a heart attack. Supposedly all tests came out clear- EKG, MRI on brain and spine, chest x-ray, vital signs, etc.
1578792 tn?1310893478 it took another 10 yrs of doctoring to finally get an MRI and see that the cause was DDD and herniation in my spine, thus causing radicular pain thru the nerves and down my legs.... I still suffer from shoulder and upper back pain as well as chronic fatigue. and my doctors have FM on my file so everyone I see continues to treat me as an FM patient, maybe I am? I don't know anymore. I have been on gabapentin(neurontin) for about 6-7 yrs...
551343 tn?1506834118 (go figure) My condition started with Pain. I felt like I had a pinched nerve in my upper back two years ago, which started to calm down, and then felt more like a pulled muscle. Presently, I still suffer from that "injury". The pain then spread to my neck, and pretty much stays with me all of the time. It's like my muscles NEVER relax. I then started to have numbness in my left hand and shooting pains in my left arm.....
Avatar f tn Deep, aching pain in a muscle Pain that persists or worsens A tender knot in a muscle Difficulty sleeping due to pain (all of the above from Mayo Clinic) Elsewhere: Many of those already suffering from the pain of fibromyalgia also suffer from myofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is another form of chronic pain that can affect the entire body, particularly the face and jaw.
Avatar f tn For the past 2 years, on and off...I get this weird pain in my upper left arm...most times it feels like a tight muscle or pinch or squeeze, sometimes I get a burning sensation or tingling, but I basically always feel it. It doesn't 'hurt', but it is very uncomfortable and bothersome...I always think there is something majorly wrong with me, and overthinking the arm pain gives me anxiety! And that doesn't help, cause then I feel it more! It's a vicious cycle.
