Hi Dear !!Thanks for your query to HCM.
Read and reviewed your query facts in context to your health concerns.
Musculo-Fibromyalgias with numbness and tingling in shoulder/ foot / wrist / forearm-this symptom complex -recurring and progressing gradually over last few years and last few months.

Cause of this symptom complex-
This complex seems to be mostly due to -Rheumatic Arthritis- in early stages.Other causes like Systemic Lupus / Sjogrens disease needs to be kept in mind.

Do's- Suggested-
I would suggest you to Consult Rheumatologist and get tested for RA activity in your body.
Blood Testing for AC/protein Antibodies and for RA factor- antibodies
Xray of the joints complained would be needed to fix the diagnosis of this problem.

Give More info as follow-
Is there any morning stiffness / malaise?
Whether you have family history of joint illness ? History of wrist nodules / or small joint tendon/ joint nodules.?
History of auto-immune diseases as Systemic Lupus and Sjogrens disease ?

Take Consultation with Rheumatologist after consulting your Physician.

Hope this would help you to plan further treatment with your doctors there.
Welcome for any further query in this regard.

Good day !!
