72 symptoms of fibromyalgia (NOT GOING TO BELIEVE) WHAT ARE YOURS?

You’ve probably read about the symptoms of fibromyalgia, such as pain, fatigue and fibro fog, but the list of possible symptoms is long-range widebody. These smaller lists even begin to describe our experience! I rode this “monster list” of 60 symptoms to let you know you’re not alone! The list is adapted from one developed by fibromyalgia author Devin Starlanyl along with other research.

Knowledge of the full range of symptoms can help track them, either to help the doctor make a diagnosis or to help identify the triggers. It also helps to know you’re not the only person experiencing these! Some of these procedures are identified as overlapping conditions, which means that commonly occur with fibromyalgia, but they are the conditions that must be diagnosed and treated separately.

We can have any combination of the following symptoms, and in varying degrees of severity.

Symptoms are divided into categories
