Other conditions

Hi All,

I've been diagnosed recently with fibromyalgia but have had a diagnosis for Meares Irlen Syndrome and Meniere's Disease for a few years now along with a cyst on the pineal gland. The first two are issues with how sensory information is processed, visual and auditory respectively and both share a large number of common symptoms with fibro.

So what I'm wondering is if other people have these two if it's possible that there are three different groups of doctors looking at sections of the same thing. The gland releases a serotonin derivative, melatonin which is part of the sleep cycle process so again crosses in with fibro.

Let me know what you think and if you have any of these diagnoses.

I am sorry that I know nothing about the two syndromes you mention, we all bring our own complications to this family community

Hopefully, one or more of my 24,00 plus family members of this community might be able to help. Please don't dispare if you hear nothing for a few days. Our Admin People are really good at giving specific information for the various syndromes we throw them, but then that is part of how this community works. And other family members are busy with their lives, but will come back and help you.

Welcome, and good wishes, Hayesider


Hi Chris_B

Thank you so much for your interesting post, it is quite useful to make these kinds of comparisons. I have never been diagnosed with any of these syndromes although I quite often have the symptoms of Meniere's Disease.

I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck with getting some good replies to your post and please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you
