My IBS symptoms started about three and a half years ago, followed about a year later with what felt like muscular tension in my legs, arms, chest and, occasionally, shoulders.My doctor was prepared to label my condition fibromyalgia although I don't have, thankfully, other typical fibromyalgia symptoms such as 'tender points' on the body and disrupted sleep. He also commented that muscloskeletal pain was not uncommon in IBS patients.Presently my symptoms can run in tandem or they can manifest themselves separately, and the overall levels of discomfort will vary.I'm not on any medication but a nutritionist has suggested magnesium supplements - I'd be interested to hear other views and recommendations.
