Fibro and raynauds

Postby Bobby16 » Thu Mar 30, 2017 5:29 pm

The Rhematologist told me that fibromyalgia does not have any connection with Raynaud's phenomenon. I've been diagnosed with both conditions. A colleuge of mine has two sisters. One has Raynaud's. The other has fibro. I find it a bit of a coincidence.Does anyone know.

You may be correct Bobby.

Symptoms of Raynaud’s phenomenon (RP) in fibromyalgia syndrome are similar to those reported in primary RP despite differences in objective assessment of digital microvascular function and morphology

Symptoms of Raynaud’s phenomenon (RP) are common in fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS)......

In other words a different form of the same phenomenon is common in fibromyalgia. Send the report to your Rheumy :roll:

I feel its more connected with auto-immune diseases but I think Raynauds is quiet commen without illnesses. Iv had it ever since Iv known (when a kid I was cold and my legs turned all different shades of purple and orange!) :yikes:

Our bodies with minor unbalance will be more like an open field for auto immune diseases so you can say its connected.
