I have had and/or still do have all of these symptoms. It is not fun to have to deal with any of it! I do not wish his on anyone, and still to this day struggle with why I have it! I always ask “what did I do to deserve this crap?” I know that I don’t have it because I did something, but it’s hard to remember that when you suffer so much! I am so angry with how much this horrid illness has taken from me!

How many symptoms do you have?

All these are common symptoms of Fibromyalgia, but could also be associated with other illnesses, it is always best to not self diagnose and go talk to your doctor!
