Hi & :welcome:

If you have it it checked by your GP and they have put it down to FM then yes this can be a sypmtom...

I have leg pain from the fibro, mine comes from my stiffness in my lower back and trigger points on my buttocks :shock:

i starte dwuit cramp in my left leg that i went to the gp and was given quinine tablets as this can help. however uit eventually went in to my hip back and other leg etc. that eventually i got the diag as having fibro. mar 2006. i have alot of other probs as well.


if you havent had this cheked out it may be worth doing. if the cramp goes along side, redness and swelling like a lump and very hot too touch it can be caused by cellulitus whichi iis blood poisioning through a cut usualy, or could be a dvt....
if you have had it checked then good . and it can as far as i know be a sign and sympton of fibro. ..xxx :hugs:
live life to the full as life is what you make itxx

I suffer badly with cramps in my calf muscles, it's extremely painful and leaves me unable to put my body weight onto my foot for days after.

I have been to the docs today and he's prescribed me quinine to take daily for it

Cramping could well be due to myofascial issues. Myofascial issues are a common symptom with Fibro, but often need slightly different treatment to the Fibro itself.
I run FibroAction, a small national charity raising awareness of Fibromyalgia Syndrome. I am not a qualified healthcare professional. If you would like medical references for any facts quoted, just PM me.
