Visual Problems

Can anyone tell me if they constantly have black or white spots in their field of vision,I'm not sure if it's fibro related

I take care of people's eyes for a living and also live with fibromyalgia period I can tell you that that sounds like floaters but can also be the start of a retinal detachment so please watch closely and if you continue to have that going and seeing eye doctor immediately. That has to do with your vision not the disease

Yes we do get vision problems. Floaties,sensitivity to light, double vision, blurry vision. We should be stretching our eye muscles. Like following your finger excersizes. If it hurts it's because the muscle is contracted.

It could be due to your medicines. Also, it could be floaters like was earlier said. I've not heard of fibro itself causing vision problems. I've taken meds that have made me have to get stronger lenses in my glasses, but when I stop the meds, my vision returns to what it was previously.

Thanks for your response,gailsurattdavis but I don't take any meds so I'm hoping it's just floaters
