    yes. I think its pretty common that fibro is affected by hormones. have you been diagnosed with fibro?

    Where is your pain? I have it too in my hips, knees, legs and feet. Sometimes in my head arms and back - it moves around.

    my pAIN started in my wrists 4 years ago,

    now its in my arms,shoulders,feet. I have just started feeling it in my knees and head this week.

    someone once said on here they felt like a ping pong inside because the pain moves around so much. Are the symptoms of FIbromyalgia the same as Arthritis?

      all the those autoimmune conditions can be similar in manifestation. With symptoms so general and unspecific it is so tough to say without extensive professional testing. The symptoms can mean so many things- from anxiety to anything truly physical you can think of!

      So simple answer is- they can have similar manifestation, but you cannot know for sure which one you have or even if you have anything at all- unless you have been officially diagnosed.

      That is my unprofessional opinion:) based on life experience.

    Hi, I haven't had it brought on by hormones, but I've had fibromyalgia for 15years. And the last 4years my symptoms have become 10fold!!! Which I put down to hormones making it alot worse as I've been going through perimenopause for about 5/6years now. I'm terribly irritable, awful mood swings, dizziness, my anxiety and panic attacks gone through the roof, insomnia, and my pain in my hips, neck, back, wrists, knees has just gone off the scale along with crashing extrem exhaustion. Which I've put down to perimenopause making my fibro worse. Even had bloods taken this week because so worried how exhausted I'm feeling and the pain. But from what I've read up on it does say perimenopause can cause extreme tiredness and joint pain. Can anyone else shed any light on it please...? Hope you feel better soon... I just pray it gets better soon for all us unfortunate women going through the change. 🙏🙄😕
