Vision symptoms?

Has there been any symptoms related to Fibromyalgia causing blurred vision or vision loss?


Rachel - June 12

I'm told that blurred vision and loss is a symptom of fibro. This from fellow sufferers I've met. Medical eye drs (my personal experience) don't acknowledge fms, just medical diseases of which I do have one. This only increases my vision loss. Go to an opthomologist and rule out everything else. Good luck.

I've had problems with my left eye, but I don't know if it's Fibro or not, I got checked for MS, but nothing showed up.

I am going to get my eyes looked at ASAP. On Friday, I had this strange episode of where my peripheral vision was all blurry and fluttery -- kind of how the surface of a swimming pool glistening in the sun looks. I did not have a headache, and it was just my peripheral vision. I was at work and could not drive home in that condition, so I just stayed at my desk and tried to rest my eyes and it gradually went away. I had a very mild episode of the same the next day (Sat.) but nothing again since.

Has anyone had symptoms like this? One co-worker told me it could be a migraine without the headache part. Another had his retina detach and said his symptoms were the same but just in the one eye with the detached retina.

Mine, in my left eye was like looking through a steamed window, it improved to where it's just blurry, but now I must wear glasses all the time. I was given an MRI, but nothing showed up. I've had a couple of other episodes of it, but it didn't last as long only half a day.

It's also possible that blurred vision can be caused by your pain killer...My doctor put me on very large doses of ibuprofen and I started noticing changes in my vision. It turns out that it's a side-effect of the medecine (info I found both on my pharmacy help sheet and on WebMd.) Good luck.

I have, in my research, found visual problems are a common problem. I have had dry eye syndrome for several years. Sometimes my eyes are very sensitive to light. Sometimes I feel like I cant see as well, and in fact, dont read like I used to (ALL the time!) I havent read a book in ages.So, yes, visual problems are a part of this danged problem.
