Hi Elizabeth and welcome. There is no deterioration of muscles with fibro. Our muscles may become weaker due to inactivity cause of the pain we have when we use them. Now some of us do have problems with swallowing and choking but I don't believe it is due to deterioration of muscles.
I hope you come back and visit us more.
luv and hugs
