  • Hi,I have that ,too, but my FM and CFS are related to an autoimmune disorder called Mixed Connective Tissue Disease(MCTD) that also comes with the joys of secondary Sjogren's Syndrome which is what causes those symptoms. Have you had dry mouth or eyes? Swellings or infections in your saliva glands,especially beside and under your ear? Sores on your tongue? You might want to check it out.Shirley

  • I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in the last month, but have been complaining of ear pain, pressure, drainage, and dizzy spells for about 15 years. I have been told over and over again that there is nothing wrong with me though I know this feeling is not normal. For the last year, I have been experiencing mild vertigo. I am OK to stand and walk, but unable to look one direction or the other without the whole world spinning. I believe that this feeling is caused by a complication from Fibromyalgia. (Swelling of the Lymph Nodes?) My illness started with ear pain and pressure, and 15 years and 6 surgeries later I am still in pain. With each surgery my family could not understand how I could still be in pain. I do have hope now that I actually have a diagnosis. I have done alot of research on the subject and believe it is a curable condition. I just need to get myself in the position to afford the medical care. Good Luck.... P.S. Do you have silver fillings? And have you been tested for Heavy Metal Toxicity?

  • Hi - I've had all these symptoms too, and my fibromyalgia has turned out to be Lyme disease, a bacterial infection. I was bitten on my foot by a tick, went to a health clinic, asked what was in my foot, they said a tick, and removed it. No symptoms at the time. Three months later, sore shoulder muscles, then stiff neck, then head-to-toe muscle pain, inability to sleep or look at light. Then ear ringing. Plus lots of symptoms. Forward to 25 years later. A nurse recognized my symptoms as Lyme, I got a positive bloodtest(not everyone with Lyme tests positive), went on clindamycin antibiotic 150mg 4x/day. Within three days, my ankle swelling was going down, chemical sensitivity and fatigue dimished. And in seven days, the fibro pain went to zero! For six months, and then the bacteria learned how to outsmart the abx. We have to change our treatments frequently. So, a bodywide infection caused by a spiral bacteria invading our nerves and soft tissues and creating symptoms in all systems. We can get it from a tick bite, insect bite or human transmission. Everyone needs to start wearing tick/bug repellant outside, as the ticks are spreading. Plus put repellant on our pets too. Most people never see the tick that bit them. I was fortunate in that way - I saw it. I am interviewed in a TV program along with three others. You can google for San Francisco Lyme Disease TV Talk Show. We talk about fibromyalgia and lots of symptoms. www.lymenet.org/FlashDiscussion/MedicalQuestions is a good site to learn about Lyme, and get doctor and support group referrals. - Robin

  • Hi - My fibromyalgia has turned out to be Lyme disease, a bacterial infection. It can inflame nerves and soft tissue anywhere and cause symptoms. I think it's the 7th or 8th cranial nerves that connect with the ear and can cause ear symptoms. I suggest you take a look and start reading what people are saying there about the disease, the symptoms, testing and treatments. You can also do a search for any topic, like your ear symptoms, etc and prior threads will come up that you can read.

  • My niece and I both have this symptom with FMS. She was so tired of going to the doctor and being told she did not have an ear infection, that when she DID have one, her eardrum burst. I often feel like I have an ear infection because my ear hurts and the doctor tells me there is NOTHING WRONG. I also have increased sensitivity to odor, and if I am VERY tired, I "hear" muted voices and "music", so soft as to not be able to make out what it is. It is neurological to be sure, since I am totally sane, and this tends to occur during flares , late at night when I can not sleep and am in alot of pain. I have had FMS so long I just take these symptoms in stride. So many strange symptoms that don't make sense; it is best to find an understanding dr. who sees alot of FMS patients. If your dr. makes you feel silly, find one through an FMS support group or look on line for a FP or Interist who specializes in FMS
