I would like to say hello and also to let you know you are not alone. I suffer daily with pain in my arms and legs. The medication the neurosurgeon gives me does even touch the pain.
yes, initially i had joint pains in my hands along with weakness... that has since went away but was quite strange.. not sure why it happens though.
Hi...yes, I also get joint pain...but was dx'd with EDS/Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and that is the reason for my joint pain.If u have not been tested for this, u may want to ask about getting it ruled out.
Many with chiari do have EDS as well.
i have arm and shoulder pain. i was told it is a nerve beeing pinched. i have pain swelling and itch. mostly on my upper arms.
Well u can have swelling with EDS as well as pain....not sure about the itch...could be an allergy????
My joint pain started in my right elbow, and my dr thought I may have a hairline fracture from a drop attack...an x-ray said no...and more testing resulted in the EDS dx.
Joint pain? YES. My docs are trying to rule out EDS. My hips and mid back have always bothered me, ever since I can remember.
Definitely...in fact that is what I suffer with most since post op. I am also in the process of possibly being dx'd with EDS or a connective tissue disease...these seem to go hand in hand with Chiari. My pain is everywhere bur it started in my neck and down my left arm, it was sobad I knew there was something wrong. I now have a lot of trouble with pain in my legs too. One thing I have noticed is that the muscle/joints/tendons have been weakened and that could be the cause of the pain too. If I was u I would start looking into getting tested for hyperflexibility. Have u noticed that ur joints r quite flexible? Mine crack, pop and definitely extend too far, I have to be careful not to put too much strain on them. I hope u get some answers soon!
thanks stormy we have so much in common
EDS = Ehlers- Danlos Syndrome it is a connective tissue disorder that affects joints and the collagen that holds them together.
