Fluid in legs

Postby Angel777 » Tue Aug 16, 2011 10:29 am

Hi
I have asked two Gps about the pockets of fluid I have in my legs below my knees , and sometimes in the mornings it is worse and spread around other places in the lower leg and my legs feel heavy , have also seen an osteopath . They all say , it is normal and part of it . I have read that soft tissue sometimes swells with fibro . Anyone else have this as part of FM ? I do massage it etc. but it still sits there .

not quite sure what you mean
fibro dose not cause swelling but having said that i do get
puffiness in ankles, wrists, and just below my knees

also fingers can feel swollen but there not :crazy:

i do get swollen feet and ankles if i am traveling a long way :dunno:

Not heard about the excess fluid thing either :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: I get some puffiness around my feet and ankles, usually when I've been on my feet too long and doing too much :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

I get this too but i get it in other areas too, i'm currently under investigation as it's been going on for years....

Since i have said to others about having it there do seem to be a fair few of us with this problem. I know i was on another Fibro forum and there were a few there as well...


All i can say is if it is causing you discomfort then keep trying with the GP. As i said I've been told it's normal or that as i'm now in my 30's it's part of getting older (even though I've had had it for over 10 years) or been giving anti-inflammtories and I've tried various things with no results that really i just want to know what it is now even if there isn't a cure or treatment.

Fluid in legs

Postby Niki d » Mon Aug 29, 2011 3:45 pm

Hi Angel,
I get a lot of pain on the inside of my knee's just below the joint, I have to sleep (that is when I get any) with a pillow between my knee's as the is pain is horrendous if one knee touches the other.
My rhumetolgist said it's called bursitis and it's when the pockets of fluid that keeps your actual joint lubricated gets inflamed. He usually have an injection in each knee, which is really painful be does make it bare able.

Hope this helps gentle hugs niki 
