I have a sore throat most of the time, and had heard somewhere, that it was part of FM, so I was researching this online. I found a list of FM symptoms, that included some things I wasn't aware of. I thought I'd post the list here for anyone that would be interested in learning more! Marilyn Symptoms reported by FMS patients: persistent pain in the neck, shoulder, low back, and hip; waking up without feeling rested; severe fatigue; waking frequently during the night; waking with stiffness and achiness; hypersensitivity to cold and/or heat; complaints of abdominal pain; recurrent fronto-occipital headaches; sensations of numbness or tingling in hands and feet; constipation and diarrhea; and anxiety and depression.[1,5] Other symptoms spastic colon, mitral valve prolapse, bursitis, chondromalacia, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, vertigo, sinus and thyroid problems, concentration problems, swollen glands, and tinnitus. dyspnea, hypoglycemic- like syndrome, dysphagia, vasomotor rhinitis, mold and yeast sensitivity, menstrual problems, memory impairment, motor coordination problems, pseudoangina, conjunctivitis, carbohydrate craving, bloating, bruising, tender lymph nodes, sore throat, leg cramps, groin pain, mottled skin, muscle twitching, and lack of endurance.
