Good morning everyone :-D

I am new here so stopped by to say Hi.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about a month ago, but suspect I have had it for around 2 years. I was prescribed Amitriptyline by rheumatology but my Dr has reminded me that I am allergic to it so I am now going on Gabapentin.

May I just ask if anyone has had problems with their eyes? I am going to book an eye test for tomorrow I think. The only way I can describe it is like my eyes are dancing in my head? Also my lids sometimes feel very heavy? I am worse in the morning and last thing at night. daft as it is I took a travel sick tablet before as I felt so dizzy, its similar to how you feel with travel sickess.

TIA

Hi Tinkle,

Welcome to the forum.

Not sure about the eyes it sounds like vertigo or something like that which is common with fm. I have blurry eyes in the morning that take an hour or so to wake up. I also get mad flashing lights when I close my eyes for sleep sometimes.

I am sure there will be others that can relate to your eye issues. Look forward to chatting with you.

:welcome: to the forum Tinkle :wave: :wave: :wave:

There is a lot of info and advice on here on all sorts of subjects, so have a good look round and see what there is. Hopefully you'll find some help suggestions in amongst it all :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

WRT to FM and eyes, the answer to your question is that FM can affect them :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: It's not the eyeball itself that is affected, but the muscles and other soft tissues around it. This means our eyes can feel tired, stingy and generally uncomfortable much quicker than they would have done preFM.

However, a change in how your eyes feel and how your sight seems to be could also be due to other factors, so making an appt for an eye test is always a good idea, just to be sure there aren't other things affecting them.

Anything you want to know about, if you just ask about it, we'll see how we can help you with it :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:
