Can fibromyalgia cause extreme pain and swelling in legs?

About 3 weeks ago started having severe pains in knees, legs and feet. I have fibromyalgia. I had circulation checked and was okay. I take Lasix on a daily base. I have never hurt this bad. Thanks

OK I HAD KNEE SURGERY On both of them this yr right on 2/2 and left on 3/23 I had torn the meniscus in the right one long ago but 3 days before the surgery I stood up from a chair and felt this most horrific pain in the left knee I could not walk or bear weight … I had torn the good knee up really badly.. STil all of this time later I am on pain meds the pain patch duragesic and norco hydrocodone 10mg/325apa .. 2 pills every 4hrs and all it does is make it a tollerable.. I have considerable swelling and there is redness up to my knees on the left leg they have sent me to specialist after speciallist been tested for blood clots, alethethes feet can cause strange things like and they have determined that now I have a gland problem or hodskins diese which is cancer of the lymph system wating on that blood work right now.. have you been to any of the fibro web sites… oh wait join the group i am in its on yahoo and called fibro ********Fibromyalgia_Support_Group@yahoogroups.com…. go ahead and ask the group a question it will take a little while to get a response the first time till the moderators make sure your real and not a robot or spamer… then you will have the support of many many others with Fibro…Take care and best wishes where do you live … my ortho dr is great he is Portland Ore… he has a wonderful web site darn it I cant find it now..
