I am so glad I am not crazy!!! I have the same thing. Usually my upper arms. I noticed it for the first time almost 5 years ago. I was pregnant at the time and it was in Sept. I thought it had something to do with pregnancy. I would swim allot to try to stay fit during pregnancy and so I was in the sun allot! I noticed a few weeks after my daugher was born it left me. Then every year in Sept I get it again. I spend allot of time swimming in the summer and then in Sept I don't spend as much time in the sun. I also go to a tanning bed in the early months of the year and dont notice anything then. I wonder if it is my skin uded to daily sun and when I am not in real sun it needs it? I have tried everything like everyone else. I am just glad that mine doent happen all year round. It really affects your whole life!! You dont get the sleep you need. I am really glad to know I am not a crazy women!!

The Achillotrain has a viscoelastic heel-wedge to raise the heel for relief of Achilles tendon. A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
