Why Does FM Always Seem To Have Company With Other Illnesses Such As MS, Lupus, RA, Etc?

Why Does FM Always Seem To Have Company With Other Illnesses Such As MS, Lupus, RA, Etc?

Is FM set off by other illnesses or are other illnesses set off by FM? Which comes first the chicken or the egg? It never seems to be JUST FM...

Yes I've been told that now. In the beginning though it was just migraines I suffered with & doctors were not much help. I had to write letter of complaint before they even took me seriously... Now I get them more often & they're 10 times worse than when they began.... I take sumatriptan for them however when fully blown all I can do is try sleep & end up in bed for 2 - 3 days.. :(
