fibromyalgia and pain in the legs

Do you suffer with fibromyalgia pain in the legs? The pain associated with tender points and trigger points in multiple sites? Although we often refer as tender points, they are actually more like soft   AREAS  .

Now, most people with fibro describe a “space” of pain that radiates into surrounding tendons or trigger points. Often there is a commitment to a tendon, ligament or associated  TRP (trigger point). That’s still to radiate or extend.I have someone with fibromyalgia who has plusqu’à respond to a point of pain or sensitivity to the cause of the pain. (However, the tender point test de18 is still used in the diagnosis of fibro) and because sensibilities differ from trigger points, see the article “points of triggers for further discussion of  ” TRP  s with fibromyalgia.

For example, given the sensitive inside of the knee points. This region may extend an average of 2-4 inches above and below the inside of the knee. So it really makes more sense to refer to the call for a  AREA  pain, especially regarding working solutions.

Some activities of daily living (ADL) may  aggravate fibromyalgia Leg Pain

If so, there are many sensitive points at the lower end of the body of fiber cement. Some ADL  training (activities of daily living) may exacerbate these sensitive areas.

Examples are sitting for long periods of time standing in one place, movement or shifting weight while standing, driving, travel, cleaning, etc.

This can aggravate the pain of fibromyalgia in the leg? Trigger points, inactivity, loss of muscle mass, low back pain, sciatica, SI joint participation, certain medications, cold / flu and more. The interesting thing about the leg pain associated with fibromyalgia is that it does not matter if you are standing, sitting or lying.

The tendency to pain in the lower quadrant of fibro body is growing because of woven dots inner layers of muscle, and very sensitive areas that are not directly related to activate an activity or exercise.

The longer muscles most used in the leg (also known as Sartorius muscle in the quadriceps area) is responsible for much of our mobility in the lower quadrant of the body of fibro. Here in the adjacent image I hi-lited those areas that cause the most pain in fibro lower body.

When these muscles and the muscles around the air conditioning weakened all around this area also, including tendons and ligaments.

Agility can be lost and “regions” rather wider (as shown in the figure below cons), pain sensitive points above and below the actual point on the inner side of the knee.Fibromyalgia Leg Pain occurs when the strength and agility are lost.

Tender points in the buttock area can issue a pain in the leg, often on the sides and back of legs. Hip and leg pain can result because the Illiotibial band (outside legs) extends from the hip region along the side of each leg and when this area is clamped may cause stinging pain and severe stiffness .

Weakness and / or shortening of the hip abductors can also lead to decrease in the extreme density and mobility. Band Syndrome Illiotibial (ITBS  ) occurs in athletes through repetition and overuse but this painful condition is not uncommon for people with defibromyalgie.

Now this is where there is some controversy. The fibro OR exacerbate these elements / body parts of fibro become weaker? Do you suffer from chronic myofascial pain over fibromyalgia? That would be why you feel your leg pain is deteriorating because there are many layers of trigger points in the lower body.

I often say, I recommend do not sit for a long time first thing in the morning. If we go from lying in bed to sit down first thing in the morning, this will only become more stiffness in the lower back, hips, legs and knees.One thing to consider with fibromyalgia and pain the leg is that every position that we stay in too long, such as sitting or standing may increase pain and activate trigger points. Tender points are always at some level, but they are the trigger points that are activated by repetitive desmouvements or too long in one position.
