FIBROMYALGIA SYMPTOMS
~
The Monster List of Fibromyalgia Symptoms!
~
By Adrienne Dellwo, About.com Guide

You’ve probably read about fibromyalgia symptoms such as pain, fatigue and fibro fog, but the list of possible signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia are far-reaching and body-wide. Those tiny lists don’t even begin to describe our experience! I put together this “monster list” of 60+ fibromyalgia symptoms to let you know that you’re not alone! The list is adapted from one put together by fibromyalgia expert Devin Starlanyl along with recent research.

Many of these fibromyalgia symptoms also can be caused by other ailments and this list isn’t intended as a diagnostic tool. Knowing the full range of symptoms, however, can help you track them either to help your doctor reach a diagnosis or to help you identify triggers.
