Could taking several medications for fibromyalgia cause a person's arms and hands to hurt and become numb?

Yes, and I would suggest you go onto: Type in: What side effects does __________(type in name of medication) have? I have no doubt some of the side effects you have are due to your medications and if it's something to be concerned about the medical page will tell you to mention it to your doctor so please do so. Good luck!


Keep in mind that some people with fibromyalgia have reported these same symptoms. Just in case this is something more serious and you should speak to your doctor. This also can be a sign of a blood clot, heart attack, or stroke.
