help very worried hope you can help

Postby cuddlyhoneybunny » Wed Oct 05, 2011 2:33 am

both me and my hubby have fibromyalgia in his opinion my is much worse than his he is affected less.

i cannot sit for long,stand for long,walk much at all(as i get too much pain)my muscles are very weak.

Today i noticed a drop of water on my leg thought nothing of it wiped it off.Then it reappeared again wiped it off,it appears i am leaking (not wee i haven't wet myself!)

I am often inactive due to the illness and have noticed on the affected leg it seems to have oedema if you press it ahollow appears then gradually fades.

i did injure the leg years ago and its always the first one affected by flare-ups.

I am big so i know that doesn't help the other leg seems fine.
I noticed someone else posted something similar but the replies were a bit vague.

I can't exercise at gym they did a risk assessment-i have fits too they actually said our insurance won't touch you-sorry!
nhs said i can't use their hydro pool coz of fits too.
i know the best answer is go to the doctor i am booked in next week,but i just wondered if anyone could shed any light on this.
ThankYou in advance. bunny

try and keep the leg elevated if you sit down for long periods so that it is easier to pump everything around your bed, but keep moving as and when you can as that help your circulation as well.

try not to worry and your drs will explain everything fully.

are you diabetic at all, as sometimes this does not help your circulation either so if that is so it is important to keep your blood sugarl levels within the safe range rather than getting too high.

see if this helps at all.

I agree with the advice from animal house re keeping it elevated whenever possible and trying to move around even slowly it will help, you've done the important thing and made an appointment with the doc. :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: you will get the help you need quickly :goodluck1: :wave:

Hi
Myself & OH both have fibro as well so know how hard it can be when you are both in pain. :facepalm:

I have never had this happen to me but glad you have made an app with your GP.

I know how hard it is to exercise when you are in lots of pain but just having a short walk around the house or up and down your garden will help your legs. Just do what you can and listen to your body, stop if you feel you need to as you dont want to over do things either.

Like the others have said while sitting keep your legs up but try to do soft stretches with your legs and rotate your feet every now and again to keep the blood pumping and the water retention down.

:goodluck1: at the docs. :hugs: keep us updated.

my sister who is diabetic has these symptoms, taht is why i asked.

hers was just in the one leg and i was worried it was a dvt, so doctor prescribed her a diuretic to get the excess fluid out of her body, so thats why you are probably peeing alot. hopefull this will help it to go down and reduce. however the inection does need to be cleared up and steriods are a quick fix to improve your wellbeing. (watch your weight though as you can gain on steroids over prolonger period)

keep area cleaned and wash your hands regularly and don;t prod your legs.

take care and keep the legs elevated remember to help the circulation.

hopefully will clear up quickly, but don;t be afraid to go back to doctors if not seeing any improvements. :wave: :wave:

If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either

Boots works differently, I ring them and order what I need and they tell me when it will be ready for collection. simple (not) as they can never get it right :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: But they do try to fix things when they have gone wrong :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Glad your leg and other bits are being treated, :fingerscrossed: you will be feeling much better once everything has cleared up :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave:
