Fibromyalgia Symptoms

Although increased sensitivity to pain is the main symptom of fibromyalgia, fibromyalgia syndrome and other types of chronic pain diseases form a family of overlapping syndromes. Therefore, even though the most common symptoms are pain and fatigue in muscles and tendons, often it is seen that those suffering from fibromyalgia will have other associated conditions and symptoms. It is because of these overlapping symptoms that fibromyalgia cam to be categorized as a syndrome rather than a disease.

In the book," Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, &Lyme Disease", doctors state that Lyme Disease can mimic these other conditions. A doc can take a blood test, to test for Lyme. The syptoms are the same. We need to be treated with antibiotics. Mold sensitivity happens when we have certain genes. Lyme has to be treated first. An astma and allergy center can test for mold sensitivity, and only ceratin specialists treat Toxic Mold Syndrome. Ask a naturopath for a referral. Good luck knowitall
Hello Everyone, I think that I`ve had this FM for yrs. I was wondering if anyone out there also has pain in there hands as well as the pain in the feet but also the tips of my toes feel like there going to blow right off. Does anyone else get this pain in there toes. ( the feeling is like the nails have soooooo much pressure in them I sometimes think the nails are going to blow right off the feet) Thaks all
I was just diagnosed, but I'm quite sure that I've had this for at least 3 years. Im confused and depressed. I thought if someone could just definitively tell me what was wrong with me, I would feel better about it. Wrong!
