Highten Sensitivity?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question šŸ’­

I know with fibro you get very sensitive to touch because of the nerves firing like mad. But does anyone else get more sensitive to light, sound, smell and taste?

I have noticed the last 2 weeks or so that my senses have gone into hyper sensitive, everything seems so loud, any sort of light burns my eyes and gives me a migraine, and smell does the same thing. Is this normal?

Thank you everyone for sharing your experience, it makes me feel better knowing that i'm not the only one. Now i just have to find a way to cope with them all. I have 2 kids who are very hyper and loud all the time so im trying to figure out ways to cope with that.
