burning in upper arm

i've probably asked this before so sorry in advance but does anyone else suffer with burning sensation in thier upper arms?? which comes quickly and almost causes you to be shocked with the pain? when i get this aswell my knees, wrists and ankle hurt to, like last night it was painfull to even hold a cup! and my legs gave n once causing me to nearly fall over if it wasn't for a chair i grabbed on to! its not ALL the time but does last a few hours and then the low period lasts a couple of days, bit unsure as to what to do, as you know im in portugal, i can put up with it but im terrified that my nerve root and spinal cord impingement hasn't got better or worse i've developed SM?? ...... does this sound familuar to anyone? x

  Hi....is this more in ur muscles or joints?

If it is ur joints, I would say  have ur Drs look into EDS- Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome....it is a connective tissue disorder that can abruptly flare up....

  I have noticed the sharp pains in my ankle as I sit...and it hurts quite a bit....I also have TC, so I am not sure if mine is brought on  by the TC or EDS but if it is  my joints, I feel it is the EDS.

Hey Selma, erm i it's like my muscles are burning but then the sharp pain is in my knees/ankles/wrists ..... but the comes and goes intermitdley if that makes sense.

How do docs test for EDS and is that something that is connected with chiari, im more leaning towards the nerve and spinal cord impingment i have, im womdering could this be now compressing causing this pain?

  I am sure what u r experiencing could be either of the 2 or something we haven't considered.....

  EDS is first dx'd with a neuro exam, then confirmed  getting a skin biopsy...A NL does the initial exam, sends u to a rheumatoid Dr who in turn sends u to a geneticist....

There r many types of EDS and like chiari no one will have all the listed symptoms.

Here is a link where they added criteria for hypermobility to the EDS testing.....-http://www.reumatologia-dr-bravo.cl/para%20medicos/crit%20y%20diag/DIAGCRITJHS.htm

  Goodness this is going on for some time now, unless u had a break in there?

  What has ur Dr said in regards to this symptom?

   I have not had the "dead" feeling, but the weakness to lift something like a teacup, I have and it is not fun...plus it hurts....and u feel so helpless...

Have u been dx'd with Ehlers-danlos?I know I asked this b4, but wondered if u have been to the dr since?
