I heard on tv last week (uk) that I should be shielding from coronavirus because although I don't take any immunosuppressive medication I could be more vulnerable because my lungs would be infected. Has anyone heard of anything similar?
Only heard about self isolating due to low immune system because of the other co-existing conditions that go with fibro.
Otherwise just follow the health guidelines for your country.

Yes the symptoms are very similar but apparently we should be able to tell the difference between fibromyalgia and the virus.
I didn’t. I was out of it for 3 weeks waiting for anti covid test. I had to go to the ER because I was dizzy and disoriented. I spent 4 hours and had every test imaginable and was told it was a fibro flare up. I figured it out myself with the help of my pharmacist. I was having a severe reaction to Hydroxyzine. It took 5 days for clear my system and now I’m sooo much better!!!!
