I have fibromyalgia and I sometimes experience a lost of balance when I walk,is this common among fibromyalgia suffers?

Hi, yup I call it the fibrodrunk walk. When my
guy walked into the plant that I had earlier I
said yup you're a fibrodrunk too. But seriously
yes it does happen and times so unexpected.

The fibrodrunk walk is a great name for it. I used to use a cane. Now sometimes I have to use a walker. Which is very embarrissing even tho it's for my own good. After all I don't need broken bones too.

I know I often have a problem walking and not losing my footing... LOL fibrodrunk ok I know what we suffer from is far from funny but I have to laugh at myself because I know at times people are looking at me thinking..."she's drunk" I am unsure of if it has to do with the meds or maybe a combination of things.

I notice somtimes that I bump into things. do you guys ever get dizzy? sometimes i feel kind woozy too. if used to totaly freak me out but i'm so used to it now that i don't real get scared anymore. it does bother me though. i worry that i might have a spell when i'm driving which would be really not good. my doc said it was jus anxiety.

Yes, loss of balance can occur. Are you on medication?

Ive noticed that am just clumbsy in all different ways but I'm not dizzy or woozy. My balance, preception, & grip is just off. Sometimes I'm holding something and just drop it, misjudge a corner, or start out walking straight then wind up veering off. This is one of the first symptoms I noticed beside the pain.

This is a very common symptom. Would you believe that a decongestant will help? Phenylephrine. Sudafed PE is one, but kind of expensive. Read the labels. 4-Way Brand Nasal Spray is 1% Phenylephrine. Very weak version, but you could try that.

All the clear fluids in our bodies are sluggish.
