    I was diagnosed with FM about 2 years ago. I really feel like my eyes are dry and burn a lot. Does that happen to anyone else. I don't know if it is my medication or a symptom of the FM.

    I get the same thing. Right now I have extreme redness in my right eye along with pain. My family Dr is sending me to a specialist just to check things out.

    Sometimes meds can do this too. I have Hashimoto's thryoiditis and that can cause a lot of dry skin, etc.

    Always better to be safe than sorry. I'd check with your Doc the next time you go.

    All the best,

    My eyes are dry also and I use drops in them alot. I also have trouble with blurry,fuzzy vision, occasional double vision, trouble focusing, and sharp, stabbing pains in my right, upper eye socket to above my temple.

    I went to an Opthomologist and he said nothing was wrong. I started having these symptoms before I was on any meds, so there again, I believe it's just another weird symptom of this disease.

    All of this is really pretty new to me but reading what everyone else has to say helps me a lot. I just know that to get up and go to work everyday is a real struggle sometimes and everyone looks at me like I am faking. Their usual responce is what's wrong TODAY? My family and children are very supportive but sometimes I wonder how long I will be able to keep up these 50 hour weeks. I have dark circles under my eyes and headaches as well all the time. Your support means a lot. Thanks. Any suggestions are definitely appreciated.
