    My eyesight has gotten so bad and my contacts have been driving me crazy, I have to wear contacts cause I hae the field of range that glasses give you. But I have been finding that every few months my eyesight changes and my insurance only covers once a year. What a wonderful country,

    Hi Jaime13

    Mine have started to see double or blurry, is this another problem when one has fibro? I told my Dr. and he is having my eye doctor check my eyes again. I wasn't sure if this is a sign of having fibro. or something else. It is real scary and is worse at night, how about you?

    I hope your's get better, and it sure would be nice if insurance company's cared for their customers!

    It has to be a problem connected with fibro as we have muscles holding our eyes. Why should we think that our eyes would be not a part of this condition of fibro-everything else is

    All of you guys should get am Igenex Western Blot test for lyme. 50% of lyme patients don't remember being bitten by a tick. The symptoms of fm and lyme are identical.

    The lyme bacteria or coinfections are known to get into the eye and cause vision problems.

    I saw some other posts on this...I think that CFS does something to our vision too. I get lots of sinus congestion and I wonder if this pressure causes my vision to go out.
    Is anyone else nearsighted and have sinus pressure?

    Has anyone recovered from CFS/FM and notice vision reversal i.e. getting better?

    I've had SUCH a bad year with my eyesight.

    I've been nearsighted since I was about ten years old, but in the past year and a half alone, my eyesight's gotten steadily worse.

    The contacts absolutely aggrivate me. I prefer them so much to glasses, but it takes me so long to get them in, and they HURT when I do.

    Sometimes I'm so exhausted after a day of school and homework and whatnot that I forget about the contacts and fall asleep with them in. My astigmatism's getting worse because of that, too.

    I can't wear my contacts right now because I can't see with them. I took my glasses off the other day and was appalled to find that I couldn't read any words on a soda bottle not even half a foot away from me.

    And yeah, I have the same problem--I can only get a new prescription once a year, but it gets steadily worse BEFORE the time that I can change prescriptions.

    A few years ago, my vision was 20/100. My visions gotten twice as bad since then--whether because of FM or not, I'm not sure.

    But it definitely is tiresome.
