Nov 22, 2014 7:36 PM

All thru my Discoid,SLE,RA,FIBRO etc....... I really have had more trouble with my left side. I hurt on both sides yep per but it's way worse on my left.!!!!! Right now if I even Try to pick up a tissue it feels like my elbow is being torn apart!!!!! My left thumb and top knuckle on first finger too!!! My left ankle (tendons swollen). these places hurt and I ache all over too but worse in these areas on my left side!!! Does anyone else do this way or know someone who does? TY in advance. I have gotta go lay down running fever and makes my fatigue worse makes me just feel yucky!! Got stinging going on on inside of left ankle from standing not two min. Later peeps.

Grace, I have more problems with my left side as well. Due to genetics (scoliosis, facet disease, muscle atrophy in neck) my left side was more seriously impacted by my car accident four months ago. Are you aware of anything that may have made your left side the weaker one?

When pain flares the left sides pain is usually higher than on the right. I am right handed, but when the right is bothered I have learned to compensate with my left. My left side is definitely more sensitive.

With me it's on my neck. The center but it travels to my right shoulder down the elbow into hands.
