    I don't find this to be true or helpful. It sounds like a list of every symptom everyone who responded to a poll said they had, regardless of what other health problems they may have had in addition to FMS.

    I don't think many of these symptoms are even symptoms of FMS.

    Take care, Annette

    I cannot believe all those symptom's. I have continuos allergy, sore throat, low grade fever, IBS, and more recently have PVC's,(heart palpitations). Thank's for this!
    angelswife responded:
    Wow---the list is both scary and reassuring. It definitely answers some questions. Thanks, Mimi!
    birdlegg replied to angelswife's response:
    I agree with annette, and it's a good thing we don't have all of those symptoms.

    I agree with Annette.

    Fibro is blamed for everything under the sun when it comes to the unexplained body aliments.

    To me most of this is how your body reason behind it, it is just the make up of your body....
    An_198692 replied to An_198691's response:
    I agree with Annette also. It seems that fibro is blamed for everything, I am not sure, it seems like it is growing in leaps and bounds, and although I have had fm for many many years, before it was this common, I sometimes wonder if Drs are using it as a "catch all" in some cases,

    So many of the things people complain about are part of everyday aging and or the progress just getting older, etc.
