Hi, Sylver, and welcome! I have never heard there is a connection between these illnesses but you could have both of them. We have people with fibro and other illnesses, including me. We do have to remember that not everything is caused by fibro. It's easy to wonder because we have so many symptoms and many of them fit with other illnesses. That's why doctors run a battery of tests to rule out the other illnesses before a diagnosis of fibro is made. The other illnesses can be helped with certain medications.
Be sure to check out Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. There are links to good information about fibro and you will learn a lot.
I'm so glad you found us and joined our family. I'm looking forward to getting to know you. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you and I hope to hear more from you soon.
God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
