I admit that FMS caused me alot of anxiety!
When my symptoms come on i get anxious, espcially when they come on suddenly or its one of the scary symptoms like numbess in the extremities.
Im also in partial denial that all i have is fms, im obsessed with the idea that i have MS even though my doctor has ruled that out and constantly reminds that fms is all i have.
im always comparing fms to ms by reading the similarities and differeces.
My wife constantly tell me " why dont you believe you have what the doctor says you have (fibromyalgia)!
ive also read that people with FMS tend have anxiety.
i know how to cope with the anxiety from the good counseling but i know that the root of my anxiety at this time is my condition. If Fms is truelly all I have, then i need to get to grips with it,accept it and learn not to worry about things i dont have.
In general does any one else here get anxiety from their FMS?
