FIBROMYALGIA  

Conditions Related to Fibromyalgia


Seldom is fibromyalgia a solitary illness. Most FM patients have one or more comorbid (related) conditions. Which came first is one of those chicken and egg questions.

Why do people with FM usually have so many other disorders? The answer to that may be found in a new paradigm proposed several years ago by Dr. Muhammad Yunus. He suggests that many of these related illnesses could be classified as Central Sensitivity Syndromes. Basically, this means that the central nervous system becomes hypersensitive, which stresses the rest of the body and can eventually lead to any number of different disorders. (See "Are Fibromyalgia and Other Chronic Conditions Associated?" for more information on Central Sensitivity Syndrome.)

Some of the related conditions that fibromyalgia patients may have include:
  • Allergies
  • Migraine disease
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • ME/CFS (myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome)
  • irritable bowel
  • Lupus
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
  • Chiari malformation
  • Intermittent cervical cord compression
  • Cervical stenosis
  • Polymyalgia rheumatica
  • Sleep apnea
  • Raynaud's syndrome
  • Sjogren's disease
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Depression
  • Osteoporosis
  • Multiple chemical sensitivity
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Interstitial Cystitis
  • Gulf War Syndrome
