    Aside from fibro, can inhalant allergies cause muscle aches?
    Such as breathing in pollens (ragweed) molds etc.

    I had a managable case of FM for years, that could have remained undiagnosed if I hadn't gotten so chemically sensitive.

    Overexertion and morning stiffness cause pain, but the worst pain is from going shopping, visiting people, airfresheners and deisel fumes.

    I think so since your immune system is fighting off the allergen that was inhaled.
    I have numerous allergies beside FMS,CFIDS and degenerative disk disease so there are times I don't know what's causing the aches & pains.

    I have often wondered this too. I have awful allergies and wonder if a lot of my symptoms coincide with this...I know my headaches do. I also get alot of postnasal drip and sometimes my throat aches and the back of my tongue.

    Can't exactly answer your ? but I think you're right and definitely not alone.

    I really think so

    I have CFS and FMS and Terrible allergies

    When my allergies are flaring, I definitely feel worse with the pain and fatigue
