I have the same thing. Not sure but thought it was because of the drugs I was on. I'm on cymbalta and trazadone.

Hey - I do! I just registered today. I've never been diagnosed with FMS, but have been curious enough to take online tests which say I have 45% of the symptoms. I seem to get "tight spells," and can remember having them since my teens. I'm in my forties now, and lead a pretty active life - including 6 marathons, but I think I must be afflicted somewhat on the FMS scale. ANYWAY, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease about 5 years ago - around the same time my yellow eyelids began to appear. I spent 1 1/2 yrs. on antibiotics to get over it, but I've been confirmed as "Lyme-free" by a leading specialist. As a non-scientist, I can't help but wonder if somehow certain proteins in my system have been affected by something else. I've had a doctor tell me they're called xanthelasmas - but mine don't protrude like the ones you see on Google Images. They can be a sign of high cholesterol. I had mine checked, though, and it is fine. so now they're called "idiopathic" - cause unknown. Evidently, you can have them surgically removed, but they recur for 50% of patients anyway. I still think they must indicate SOMETHING - but at this point, no one seems to know.
