Hi, I'm newly diagnosed with FMS. I've had IBS for many years. It was in remission for several years but has come back with a vengeance. I've had bouts of intense pain for several years. I explained this to my doctor and she did the tender points check. She's been my doctor for years so she knew my medical history (anxiety, depression, dizzy spells, IBS) and we confirmed other symptoms at my appointment. Anyway, I was looking through the archives doing a search on dizziness and low and behold, there it was, another symptom of FMS. I've been battling this disequilibrium problem for a few years now. I have been checked for so many things, all of which came back negative (thank God). I finally feel validated now that I know that this disequalibrium is most likely part of the FMS. Getting the diagnosis was bittersweet; I could finally put a name on all the things that I've been going through.
