are these typical symptoms?

Does anybody feel as if your eyes are being pulled out of your head? Or that the front of your brain is being squeezed and wrung out like a dishcloth? I do wonder if I'm losing my mind sometimes!

I often feel as though someone is jabbing me in the eyes with a sharp pin. :twisted:

Thanks for replying, it means a lot. I feel quite alone with this FM malarky!

What's that, Elaineann, the stabbing, twisty head eye pulling, or lonely fibro feeling?

Don't get it all of the time, but yes i do also get the feeling that im being poked in the eyes with a needle. i find it really hard to drive at night time too, as the pain affects my vison more though at night which i find strange.. last year they thought i was going blind i had to go to the eye hospital to have loads of tests but they just put it down to my fibro and tierdness xx but i know how you feel xx

Hello. I hope today is a good day for you all!
connors40, my Mum, another sufferer, has the same problem with driving at night. She hasn't been able to for around 15 years! I'm pleased you're not losing your sight, as you must be. I feel for you! My eyesight has deteriorated rapidly in the last two years, and is definitely worse in the evening. As you say, it's tiredness, I suppose.
I was recently diagnosed and it seems that since then symptoms have increased. Do you ever shake? I've not had that before today! I wonder if it's psychosomatic....again, am I losing my marbles??!
I hope the impact of your eyesight and night driving hasn't affected your quality of life too greatly. Gentle hugs to you all xx
