- DX FIBRO
To my knowledge there is no connection between autism and fibromyalgia, and no studies have been done on this.@uhuru are fibromyalgia and autism connected ?i filled questionnaires in months ago and a got a reply from the integrated team and the more I’ve spoke to them the more it seems a possibility I may have autism I’m waiting for my proper diagnosis it’s been put on hold due to outbreak, but yes migraines are a part of it.
If you are on the autism spectrum it is an entirely separate issue, and shouldn't make your fibro any worse or anything like that. Unfortunately autism is also very often misunderstood, but if you have support and do a lot of your own research into the subject you can learn a lot about it that will help you with that as well. Many autistic people accomplish great things; some say they are glad for it because it makes them able to focus well on something. No matter what, being on that spectrum is nothing anyone should ever put you down for...it's just another way of being in, and experiencing, the world.
