How Do You Feel The Hand Pain And Fibromyalgia?Malik Qasir
Do you have pain and fibromyalgia in your hand? Extreme pain is normal in fibromyalgia and is sometimes overlooked due to other common areas of fibro body pain. It may be difficult to distinguish between pain caused by fibromyalgia, nerve pain, or pain arising from another disease, such as any of the various types of arthritis.
How do you feel the hand pain and fibromyalgia?
Of course, you will have a kind of pain in both fibro and arthritis. Hand pain that come from another disease, but for the sake of hand pain and fibromyalgia and the many issues that occur, we will concentrate on hand pain caused by fibromyalgia.
For fibromyalgia pain, it is more related to nerves, tendons, and trigger points. Nevertheless, there may be other similar factors as well.
Hand-related pain can occur when you use your hands or not. Pain can occur when an item is reached and picked up. It’s even a light object. Because the muscles in our hands are different from those in our legs or arms, the pain may feel more in the bones of the fingers than in the muscles and tendons of the joints. The mild tactile feeling may also come from allodynia. Changes in blood supply to the hands or nerve pain may also be exacerbating factors.
Quite often, what you initially feel is more of a “feeling” than immediate pain. You can have a type of pain irradiation, and it can travel along the nerves, tendons, ligaments, and surrounding joints. This may cause weakness in the neck, move to the wrist, forearm, and shoulder, depending on the trigger points involved.
Often times, the pain actually begins in the upper arm or shoulder, and then radiates to the hands. The lower part of your forearm can feel pain and even “swollen,” which may worsenany co-conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
The activation points can be either latent or active.When it’s full and bright, it’s when you feel those odd sensations and radiate the type of pain around your entire arm, the biceps, and then your forearm and your neck. Also, we need to stop too much excessive activity when these areas are sore and bruised. Soft massage or myofascial release throughout the upper part of the body may be beneficial.
You may also have carpal tunnel syndrome, which can spread from your forearms to your wrist and neck.
Difficulty with the activities of daily life?
As indicated, repeated use may increase hand pain due to fibromyalgia. Daily activities such as writing and/or typing on a computer or cell phone can worsen the pain. Lifting and overcompensating objects by using your hands or fingertips more than your limbs or the strength of your upper body can also increase the discomfort.
Recent research has also shown a correlation between fibromyalgia and limb pain. For example, blood flow in the hands can be diverted from the hands when activity happens in another part of the body. I noticed this during the training or the day-to-day events of life.
This can also happen when we are exposed to contaminants in the water or to climate change. With our fitness and movement protocols, I still suggest wearing gloves when the hands are cold during workouts and at bedtime. Sure, keep a warm pair of gloves on your bed at night, cold hands can be a further aggravating factor to prevent you from falling asleep.
Maintaining the strength of the upper body at any point is important for each of us. Just as the lack of strength in the legs may affect the joints in the knees and ankles, the lack of strength in the upper body may increase the pain in the hands. So, as a reminder, always bring objects close to your body. Stop moving your arms and hands too far away from a healthy range of motion.
Do you have difficulties with the following ?
Opening of jars, car doors or drawers.
Pain when it simply rests on your hands or forearms?
Removing clothes from the washing machine
Cutting and preparing food
arranging the hair
carrying grocery bags
making the bed
grabbing a broom or vacuum
pulling a plug from an outlet
There are many great ways but also many smaller ways in which we depend on the use of our hands ….
Therefore, like other areas of the fibro body, we know that there is no quick solution, but because we use and rely on our hands in so many daily activities of life, I think it is best to protect this region as much as possible. I remember years ago when my hands were particularly painful to the extent that I went to one of my chiropractors feeling really nervous.
And what’s with a handshake? Have you ever noticed that some people like to exercise their power by shaking their hands too hard? And with fibro, you can feel like you’re squeezing your hands and fingers. I’ve made this happen lately, and the “feeling” of the handshake seemed to take too long.
As a therapist and instructor, I often use my hands, and although I have used a lot of repetitive movements in my practice, it really makes no sense for me that this pain would be so crippling that I could not completely use my hands without unnecessary pain. It took me some time to realize it was part of fibromyalgia, not arthritis. In fact, by reducing the number of repetitive movements, that more immediate pain improved.
Again, it is important to remember that although we must maintain as much strength as possible in our upper body, this form of pain can arise not because of lack of strength, but actually as part of the symptoms of fibromyalgia and, in particular, hand pain and fibromyalgia.
Is there any help with my hand pain of fibromyalgia?
Although we know that pain in the extremities is only part of life with fibromyalgia, we can use several tools to mediate and even minimize pain and / or prevent it from getting worse. As stated earlier, when the pain in your hand becomes debilitating, try to refrain from repetitive movements such as writing / writing. If possible, give your hands a break for a few days.
Try wearing copper compression gloves. Copper used in wear and compression garments has been shown to reduce pain; it’s worth a try!! I’m wearing copper socks, clothes and gloves. I think this is a good investment for long-term use.
See the workouts on my facebook page, FibroFitPeople1. These can help to heal your upper body, which in turn will help your hand with pain and fibromyalgia. Remember that trigger points that often radiate start at the top of the back, neck and shoulders.
Try some natural pain relief treatments, including a few teaspoons. Of the salts of the epsom. Soak your hands in a large bowl of Epsom salts (try adding a teaspoon of ginger root powder as shown on the adrenal stress article page here on the website) The warm feeling of ginger root powder really feels good. It will usually last about 15-20 minutes after soaking. Just be sure to keep the ginger root powder away from your eyes.
Incorporate a few side exercises. Increasing the flow of blood and oxygen is beneficial for every part of our body. Take a tiny foam ball or gently extend your fingers back with the opposite hand.It’s Lisa FG.
