Swelling of legs & Ankles.

Postby kazza65 » Mon Jul 15, 2013 9:29 pm

:-? I've been noticing this a few times when i have done any walking that my ankles/legs swell to the point that my socks cut into my legs when i take them off. :(

Also i have noticed that my finger are also starting to sieze :( up to the point that i can't bend :cry: them to make a fist, because if i was to make a fist i think my skin would bust. :cry: :cry:

I take amitriptyline 40mg at night
pregablin 200mg three times a day
Mst Continus 15mg twice a day and 30mg at night

SO any idea's as to why this has started happening or if this is part of the fibro family off aliments.

Others have said they suffer with swelling, if it is something new then get it checked out with your GP
