Well, I would say probably so, because often we've been to so many doctors already, trying to figure it all out. And I imagine each thing that affects us makes us more prone to getting other things...(does that make any sense? I know what I'm trying to say, but that doesn't sound quite right...)
Several of the things you listed do often go along with Fibro. Right off the bat, I know that migraines, Raynaud's, depression, and light/smell/sound sensitivity do.
By the way, I have lots of Sciatic Nerve damage too, and it's a bear, isn't it?! I'm sure I had it even before my disc ruptured - - I just know it, even though my surgeon insists that doesn't make sense. Hmmmph. But that's another story...
Good luck at your appointment. Let us know what happens. I'm sorry you couldn't get help from the VA.
