Foot and hand pain can be experienced independently from each other, or they may be experienced at the same time due to the same conditions or separate conditions. Fibromyalgia can cause pain throughout the body, including in the hands and feet, though diagnosing this condition can be difficult because medical professionals are not entirely sure what it is or what causes it. Nerve damage can also cause foot and hand pain, depending on which nerves have been damaged. The most common causes of pain in the feet and hands include arthritis, fibromyalgia, nerve pain, injuries and trauma, and soreness from overuse. This wearing is called arthritis, and it can be a very painful condition for which there is no cure. When a nerve becomes compressed, it may cause pain in any area of the body that is serviced by that nerve. Arthritis occurs when the ligaments in a joint begin to degrade, causing painful inflammation and other painful joint issues.


The cartilage padding between the bones in the joints starts to wear down, the ligaments start to stretch, and the bones grind together, which can lead to nerve aggravation or compression, bone degradation, joint stiffness, soreness, and other types of pain. Pain can be caused by compression of more than one nerve, since the hands and feet are serviced by several different ones. And nerve damage leads to pain in the extremities, particularly in the feet and legs. But pain usually isn't the only symptom. Foot and hand pain often result from arthritis, since both parts of the body contain many small joints in which arthritis can develop. People who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, or who suspect that they may have it, often need to change their daily activities to help reduce the symptoms and lower their stress levels.
Compression can occur anywhere along that nerve's length, and many nerves originate or run near the spine. Fibromyalgia is a condition in which a person becomes sensitive to pain and pressure throughout the body.


Treatment for arthritis usually involves medications such as anti-inflammatory pills or topical ointments, as well as painkillers. Problems with nerves in the spine, therefore, can lead to pain in different parts of the body. Numbness is another symptom. I learned about all this as I have diabetes and I have to watch out for these symptoms in case nerve damage occurs.
Regular exercise and stretching can also help alleviate some of the pain associated with arthritis, though in some very severe cases, surgery may be necessary; joint replacement surgeries are sometimes a response to severe or debilitating arthritis. But very few doctors know enough about fibromyalgia and take their patients seriously when they arrive with the symptoms. Treatment is also about controlling the symptoms rather than anything else.
