My eyes always burn.....dry eyes?

Ever since I've had fibro, my eyes burn everyday...sometimes worse than others, especially when I'm tired. I always thought it was my allergies, but now I think I have dry eyes. I read that a lot of people with fibro have dry eyes. Sometimes my eyeballs actually hurt, it's really weird. Does anyone have this? Thanks!

Dry eyes can be a real problem and is typical FMS symptom. I use "Refresh" eye drops to help my poor lil eyeballs feel better. If this doesn't help, you could inquire with your local optometrist.

Yup, me too. Daily drops of saline or "natural tears" really feel nice, altho it is just soothing, not a medicine.

My eyes burn and itch and tear. The fibro has never-ending symptoms that you get so used to treating you don't even remember them all. There is an eye thing that I saw mentioned in a fibro book called Sicca Syndrome, Lord, I hate that word syndrome.

Have a hopefully good days,
