Hi guys I have been having muscle spasms all my life and PVCs and many other fibromyalgia related symptoms such as chronic fatigue etc and I have noticed I have POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia) as well. Has anyone with fibromyalgia ever been diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia? It is where your heart rate jumps when you stand from a sitting position.

Hi, Sam, and welcome! I'm not sure about that but several of us have heart included. My doctor said, after thoroughly checking me out and running four tests, that they are caused by fibro.

Well, Sam, I got curious and checked it out and, yes, fibro can cause this! Here is a link from the National Institutes of Health that states this.


Be sure to read Fibro 101.. the first thread on the forum. There are links to a lot of info about fibro there.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.

Thanks for quick the reply Sherrine. Also I wanted to know if constant muscle twitches and random radiating pain throughout the body everyday was a common symptom of fibromyalgia?
