Smile connection between fibro and diabetes

Hello everyone, I am new to the board and right out of the starting gate I have a question.

I was told that I have fibromyalgia. I am now taking lyrica,tramdol and sleeping medication.

I also take a medication for depression.

My question to the board is anyone here experiencing problems with thier blood sugar? Mine will be about 56 and than in a while be around 177 or so.

There is something going on! I am keeping a log of my readings and planning to go to doctor next week, but I would like to know if any of you have had this problem or do now!

Glad I found this site. Not many people understand this syndrome. Not even some doctors.


Thanks for being here!

Re: connection between fibro and diabetes

Hi Rose...I 'm not sure of the connection. I was dx with diabetes before being dx with fibro. I take no meds for each because most raise the glucose. Could this be what you're seeing? My PCP has tried numerous times to prescribe something for chronic pai, sleep and depression and it appears I have a problem with everything. They either raise my glucose or stop my BP meds from working. Check with your pharmacist and see if any of your meds cause the gllucose ot rise. I'd put my money on one of the anit-depressants. Please let me know.
