The Invisible Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Sensitivities and achy bones


Another invisible sign of fibro is being sensitive to certain triggers. Those with fibro can suddenly find themselves dealing with a number of sensitivities from food to lights, sounds and smells. Also, hypersensitivity can be disconcerting, especially when it comes out of nowhere. 

Achy bones

Hearing someone complain of achy bones typically makes one think of damp weather and the elderly, not necessarily fibromyalgia, but it is a common complaint from many patients.  Achy bones or even just general aches and pains are one of the many invisible symptoms of fibro and it can safely be called the most debilitating aspect of the disease.
