    How common is eye pain and blurry vision in fibromyalgia? What are your experiences?

    I forgot one thing . If you have Rosacea as I do, it can cause eye itchiness & burning. See a derm to get an rx to keep the R under control. Not everything is related to fibromyalgia.

    Increased pain in areas of weakness

    Absolutely. Fibromyalgia goes to your weakest area & can spread from there. I’ve had rotator cuff surgery. My tear wasn’t even that bad & it was 4 months going to pt 3x / week.

    Control the things you can- stretching, a little exercise, sleep ( very important), breathing correctly. PMS is real. Pay extra attention to self-care during this time, even if it’s just for a few minutes.

    Wondering if my symptoms could be fibromyalgia

    Please check to see that you are well hydrated. Dehydration causes havoc in our bodies (been there). If your blood sugar is too high or low that can cause headaches.

    No Diagnosis but Experiencing Symptoms, is it Fibro?
