Other symptoms

Postby Leighqt » Mon Nov 14, 2016 8:46 am


I have a question, can anybody relate. As I am newly diagnosed.

Often my eyes feel like I have a eyelash in them, will be really teary and itchy.

I am also embarrassed to say I'm having problems with my waterworks, I have seen a doctor about this.

In combination is this Fibro related?, I know we are not doctors, but will be nice to know if anyone else experiences similar symptoms

Blood test all came back Negative for conditions like Diabetes

Thanks in advance

Mine feel the same as i have allergies.

My eyes also cause massive problems especially with lights 8-) I get alot of eye strain, pain and headaches.

I found some other eye related fibro symptoms:

Dry eyes
Tearing eyes
Blurred vision
Double vision
Light sensitivity
Touch sensitivity
Shift of focus issues
Eye pain
Eye pain on moving the eyes
Visual Distortion
Flashing lights
Transition, near to far issues
Macular Degeneration
Frequent eye glass changes
Difficulty wearing contacts ( due to touch sensitivity )

I would also put on that list a problem with wearing glasses! as they press on my face causing pain. Loosen them up to a degree i can tolerate them and they fall off m face :roll: :lol:

Fibro can effect most muscles in the body including the bladder, heres some info http://www.fibromyalgia-symptoms.org/fi ... inary.html
