I Have Recently Developed An Irregular Heartbeat, Specifically Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVC's).

They seem to be worse when I'm stressed, or sometimes when my IBS is flared up and I'm getting a lot of gas. Does anyone else have this? Is it a fibro thing?

At What Point Do You Question Fibro

At What Point Do You Question Fibro

Hello all! I was diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic with Fibromyalgia/CF and Centralized Sensitization Syndrome. My understanding from the medical professionals there is that CSS is an umbrella type term that encompasses Fibro and CF, etc. To be clear, I was not diagnosed with ME which I've read appears to be a more severe type of CFS. Either way - I question my diagnosis and here's why.

Yes, I have pain but not the type of pain I read on here that others seem to have. My pain feels more joint… read more

Has Anyone Heard About The FM Blood Test And Research Study And Potential Vaccine?

Has Anyone Heard About The FM Blood Test And Research Study And Potential Vaccine?

The vaccine is supposed to revert the two immune system bio-markers back to normal levels. Imagine no more symptoms... I am volunteering for the study. Already have confirmation that my bio-markers are abnormal which is a positive diagnosis. It's great to finally have a blood test and be able to truly diagnose Fibromyalgia.

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

I would be interested in this study. How did you go about getting information?

Does Anyone Else Have Fainting Spells?

Does Anyone Else Have Fainting Spells?

I went shopping this week and after ten minutes in the first shop I felt completely drained and clammy. A relative noticed I'd gone completely white and took me back to the car. The faintness lasted for about 20 minutes and reoccurring the same day. I always faint when giving blood but this was the first time I felt faint for no reason. It's happening more and more now. Does anyone else get this?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

Yes, it is so scary. I'm thinking it's due to poor blood circulation.
