Arthritis with Fibromyalgia

I have arthritis in my feet, knees and spine. This only aggravates the fibromyalgia and I feel like I'm never out of pain. I was wondering:

Is it common for people with Fibromyalgia to also have some form of arthritis?

Re: Arthritis with Fibromyalgia


I also have arthritis in my knees and hands. I agree that this only aggravates the fibro. My dr says it's not unusal to have both and for it to aggravate the fibro especially after our activity leaves decrease. She claims the celebrex should help but I'm not so sure that it does.
