Steroid Use and Fibromyalgia
0 Replies
JJ1 - July 25

Researching if low white blood cell counts can be related to fibro. Found this interesting statement on a Lupus site: http://www.uklupus.co.uk/dictdn.html : “Fibromyalgia - A pain amplification syndrome characterised by fatigue, a sleep disorder, & tender points in the soft tissues; can be caused by steroids & mistaken for lupus, although 20% of those with lupus have fibromyalgia” ……….. just thought this was interesting since I had not previously read about fibro being caused by steroids. I have not historically used steroids, although now I am giving a steroid along with my IV iron treatments to avoid an allergic reaction I get with the iron form used in the injections.
