Eye Issues With Fibro

Zeeni posted:
It has taken years, but I've finally been diagnosed with fibro and am just realizing why I have all these symptoms. My questions is this: How many of you have eye problems? I am having blurry vision, red, irritated eyes and sometimes with broken blood vessels. Is this a symptom of fibro? If so, is there something that can be done? I'm getting to where I can hardly see to read. Any advise is appreciated.

Hi Zeeni,

I found a previous discussion about vision problems that I think you will find very interesting. The link is below.

I started Savella in Oct of 2009. I febr 2010, I went to the eye doctor, because of some eye problems. My prescription did not change much. I have had problems with my eyes, off and on all year now. Dry, itchy, painfull, head aches, etc... I went back to him at different times. He says I have Ocular Rosacea. I use a gel at night, before bed. Eye drops when needed, and I am taking Doxycycl HYC 50mg, daily. (he says it is an antibiotic) I finally got the tear duct eye plugs, which help, but the eyes have bad days yet. I have to stay out of wind, inside and out. Sometimes sunlight bothers, so wear wrap around sunglasses. Chemical smells can bother my eyes, so I am careful of what I use, and my hubby gets upset when something bothers me, that he is using.
