I Wish We Could Take A Survey On Here With How Many People Have Fibro As Well As Arthritis ...

I wish we could take a survey on here with how many people that have fibro also had some kind of arthritis previously...Does Fibromyalgia and Arthritis (any kind) go hand in hand?

I’m not sure if one exaggerates the other but I’ve had arthritis in my lower back and pelvic bone for a few years then was diagnosed with fibro earlier this year. I do know stress increases my flares, as well as cold wet weather. X

@A MyFibroTeam Member I do believe I dont have as much pain as others, I am still working and can manage most days (there is always pain). My symptoms only started last year (with no previous health issues) and I was diagnosed at the beginning of this year. I take naproxen, amitryptiline, sertraline and trying to come off cocodomal just now. I take multivitamin, vitamin B, evening primrose and green tea tablets. I also use epsom salts in a bath and have a magnesium spray. I am still in the process of trial and error with 'fibro' meds, but I am lucky to have an understanding and helpful doctor xx

@A MyFibroTeam Member I believe many other things go hand in hand. The fatigue hit me first. Then migraines, neck, back of head, and shoulder/back pain. Then my knees. Then, APS, Mild/dormant Lupus, starting to feel pains in fingers. I have quite a bit of pain in what was thought to be my c spine, but now it's my SI joint. Plus all the other things that are listed on my story. They have all emerged as I have aged and more so in the last 5-10 years.
