Fibromyalgia and vision problems

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia and vision problems


Avatar m tn every medicine I had been put on has been problems and I have been taken off all for Fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, and arthritis. Now, my right eye is getting fuzzy, not every day, but more days all the time. My doctor has said although I need back surgery, be careful doing that because it will possibly make your fibromyalgia worse. Will I ever be able to try medicines again? I have an allergy from them...swollen tongue and throat type but, can that ever change???/ Thanks.

Avatar f tn For my doctor visits before and even now, I write down what I need to ask in advance and prepare a list of any new symptoms and so on (when I think about it) and it helps alot - my appts are much quicker and smoother and I know my dr. appreciates it. Also, Fibromyalgia is new and there are alot in the medical community who think it's a mental disease (which it's not according to the CDC) ask for references for dr's who actually treat the specific diagnosis and start there.

Avatar n tn I have serious vision issues, pain, fatigue and lately cement legs that I am not sure what the heck is going on. Complicated migraines or migraines in general can and do cause certain vision problems. I am not a doctor but I know today my vision is more then migraines. We won't even get into my cognitive issues with brain fog! ;-) Found this thread and now I can see both this one and MS. Oh gosh did I answer the question?
Avatar n tn Yes, Fibromyalgia can affect your mother's eyesight. I have fibromyalgia and I read that the problems with eyesight are due to the nervous system, which is the centre of sensitivity in the body.Contact lenses can cause pain and irritation, while wearing glasses can trigger mysofacial trigger points (TrPs) in the face and the neck. Pain can also be experienced in the ears, teeth and nose. FMS can also lead to the production of a thick secretion, which subsequently impacts vision.
Avatar f tn always have had multiple side effects. Things like heart palpitation's, anziety and vision troubles. I can take xanax and Soma with no problems. My question is "could it be the Armour Thyroid that I take that causes the trouble?" I also have a movement disorder labeled as tremors/non-epileptic seizures which also gets worse with antidepressants. The neurotin and gabapentin which should help cause me to stumble and get blurred vision.
Avatar n tn hearing tested, both came back fine. I do have fibromyalgia and suffer with many of the problems that go along with that. I also feel as though I have things crawling on me, but there is nothing there. My feet fall asleep even when I am walking and I often have a twitching in my right eyelid. I am very tired in the evening and often fall asleep before dinner. I have even been having some trouble with tightness in my chest. I have given you all the information I can think of right now.
Avatar n tn I have panic attacks every day about what it could be...I've thought Lyme, fibromyalgia,...and of course a brain tumor... I have seen a neurologist, an allergologist, an ENT, an ophthalmologist, an infectious disease specialist, and of course a one can tell me what is wrong with me. This is what I have: - tingling in limbs - shooting pains all over - macular edema in left eye (retinal swelling, blurry vision.

Avatar f tn are some of symptoms of fibromyalgia body jerks and visual disturbances? a friend of mine/s doctor is investigating fibromyalgia but not that i'm a dr. or anything and i'm sure it is different in every body there just seems to be some things that don't mix. i know some woment that it seems to hit them really bad for a couple of months and then they seem to be perfectly fine for a while. not just look fine but when asked feel fine. and yet my friend just slowly gets worse.
1100837 tn?1267672275 Hello Leila006, It is not uncommon to have overlapping conditions such as RA and Fibromyalgia. I have Osteoarthritis of the spine, nerve damage and Fibromyalgia, which is different than what you are suffering from, but I have known a lot of people who have had both problems together. I am just guessing from what you have written, that the Lyrica has made you very drowsy...right?
Avatar n tn I had always been a very active, athletic person until the foot and leg problems caused so much mobility problems. I can't even look at the treadmill at the gym or an escalator or anything that moves quickly as it makes me dizzy. I hope that people who receive an explanation or diagnosis for similar symptoms will share it with the board.
Avatar n tn I was tested for MS and I ended up having fibromyalgia and polimyalgia. Both are related to thyroid problems I found out. It sucks sometimes because anything and everything seems to be wrong with your body at times. I've learned to deal. I take .100 mg synthroid. But, if anyone has advice to give me..please do.
10059661 tn?1407568770 Thought you might appreciate the info in this link. It is an interview with a good thyroid doctor. I think you will really like to know that, "If you remember it was a long time before the medical profession admitted that there were two new diseases to appear in the world that were not there before. Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia were non-existent before 1980. This is seven years after the 1973 consensus meeting. So where did these two new diseases come from?
Avatar f tn It sounds like you are getting a little bit of the run around here. You really need to see a Rheumatologist who is friendly to Fibromyalgia. I looked at your profile and didn't notice where you live. Are you in the states or outside? Below is a really good website to find a doctor or provider who knows how to treat and diagnose FM and CFS. Depending on where you live, I may have one more site for you.
4861077 tn?1360159739 Hi all just a quick question I have just been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and live with pain everyday. I find it hard to do all my daily things to the point that it hurts to peel potatoes what kind of help can I get for this as it is all new to me. I take lots of medication and am still in pain please help.
434278 tn?1324709825 She had/has a lot of neurological problems and fatigue because of the deficiency. She went years w/o treatment and it caused permament nerve damage.
Avatar f tn Since then I have experienced dizziness, changing blurred vision, nausea, and changing right eye pupilalation, pain and sensivity to light/glare. After developing cognitive/memory problems I was sent last October for neuropsych testing and discovered that I do have mild post concussive syndrome that was missed given my brain injury did not show with an MRI at the time of the accident. I have since also been diagnosed with cutaneous lupus, sjogren's and fibromyalgia.
Avatar n tn Recurrent headaches and tiredness are the last to go; since you have fibromyalgia also it will be difficult to say if the tiredness and fatigue is due to an after effect of meningitis or fibromyalgia. Please give yourself some more time before you take charge. Take care!

428266 tn?1295648380 Hi Lori and welcome to the MS Forum. Honestly I don't get the sense that what you are dealing with is MS. There are probably 1,001 different symptoms to MS and each and every one of those could also be linked to a different disease as well. The combination of fibro and the back issues must be horrendous. Then you toss in the problems with the migraines, PF and the other stuff and it must be miserable.
1364792 tn?1278054787 The symptoms first started out with chest pains and now have increased to random pains and numbness all over my body, headaches, sinus/allergy symptoms, dizziness, and vision problems. My doctor thinks that i might have an anxiety problem but i have never been much of an anxious person so i did some research and fibromyalgia seemed to go along with some of my symptoms.. i was just wondering what other people thought.. is it fibromyalgia, anxiety, or something else? I want opinions! Thanks!
Avatar f tn I'm in a similar boat to you - have fibro but a lot of neuro changes - severe numbness/tingling/burning, muscle cramping, muscle 'vibrations' (sensory issues), trigeminal neuralgia, problems walking that come and go (usually once every 12-18 months I'll have a 'spell' that comes on and lasts for 1 week to a couple of months), periodic bladder urge incontinence (comes and goes with the walking stuff), vision issues, memory problems etc...
Avatar n tn I have most of what you describe except for swelling and joint problems. I would see a doctor who knows and treats fibro to get an accurate diagnosis.
Avatar f tn I also had numbness starting in my feet that would go up to my legs, neck pain, headaches, vision problems, light and noise sensitivity, relentless insomnia followed by pain, pain, and more pain. On top of the Gabapentin they also give me Amytriptylin. It helps me to sleep at night. When sleep deprived my symptoms really burst open and the pain gets unbareable.

Avatar n tn You describe multiple symptoms, only some of which could represent fibromyalgia. The most severe ones you report could be consistent with the diagnosis, but other things such as the vision changes, temperature intolerance, and palpitations/shortness of breath may need to be further evaluated by your primary care physician.
Avatar f tn Horrible headaches and most recently blurred vision, muscle pain and limb weakness. Extreme physical exhaustion. Have been in hospital 3 times for chest pain and arm pain thinking I was having a heart attack. Most recent visit excruciating pain under right breast in ribs. He sent me to a rheumatologist because he believes it is fibromyalgia. The rheumatologist is adamantly against diagnosing pts w/fibro. Went back to neur. because the headaches are so intense I am now on a medical leave.
