Fibromyalgia's Deep Connection to Vision Problems

Eye dryness can be a side effect from medications and nutritional deficiency

Eye dryness can be caused by the side effects of the medication that patient is using to relieve their symptoms. Another factor that can result in dry eyes is nutritional deficiency.  However, if you experience dry eyes, you have to constantly rely on an eye lubricant to maintain moisture when your eyes are not functioning properly.

Overall, the nervous system takes a serious beating from fibromyalgia, and the eyes suffer just as much as the rest of the body.  If the nerve endings are not communicating well with the brain, then you can definitely count on changes in eyesight, along with other issues associated with fibromyalgia.
