I am 37 and have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia for almost 3 years.
The past week I have had extreme trouble with my eyes, including trouble focusing, pains behind eyes, squinting, difficulty reading, sensitivity to lights, constant headache - so I went to my optician. My vision has decreased since last test in January.
He was concerned and spoke to a specialist who asked if I had an achy jaw and tender scalp recently - YES! I put the jaw thing down to fibro muscle and joint ache and the tender scalp down to headaches so hadn't connected them altogether.
There are a lot of GCA and PMR symptoms which are similar to fibro.
I have been advised to have an urgent blood test for GCA which is today, however I would like to find out if GCA and fibro are related or if it's PMR, and I am too young for GCA?
I am slightly worried. Any advise would be amazing please x
