Fibromyalgia and Erythromelalgia

I have recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have all the classic symptoms. But one thing I have experienced for a lot of my life is Erythromelalgia. I experience flare ups- I can’t pinpoint what brings it on. My hands get red, hot, itchy and sore. Usually on the palm side and it can travel up into my fingers or down in my wrists. My ears sometimes get inflamed, my scalp along my hairline and behind my ears, and sometimes my knees too. It can last a few hours, to days. Sometimes it’s so bad that I can’t even use the hand. I’ve been researching and haven’t found any connection between fibromyalgia and this. So I’m curious if anyone experiences this? Or is this a whole other issue?
